PW starred“Refreshingly free of politics and polemics, Nicassio’s book strictly focuses on the food, offering thoughtful and practical recipes… Kid- and family-friendly … as well as inventive riffs…—all of which are simple and ingenious. …Even carnivores will find dishes … hard to resist.

~Publishers Weekly Starred Review

“A thorough, informative cookbook for healthy meals; ideal for those with food restrictions…YUM philosophy is inclusive—even die-hard junk-food addicts or meat lovers can enjoy her recipes alongside those who need or choose to avoid certain foods.”

~Kirkus Reviews

“With her YUM ‘philosophy’ and accompanying recipes, Dr. Theresa Nicassio makes me think of the beautiful and bountiful way of life in Southern Italy, with its emphasis on food, family—and also fun. Her psychological background brings a much-needed dimension to the discussion of special diets and the role that food plays in the total picture that makes up our health.”
