Advice of the day

From the vegan cookbook I have just finished editing:
A good root will smell lightly of walnuts, while one that’s gone bad during transport will smell anywhere from slightly rancid to giving off an aroma of moth balls.

Quite right. I have always suspected this. It is an excellent thing to have it confirmed, and in a cook book too

And what root would that be, je prie?

Manioc, aka cassava. I don't think I have ever seen it in NZ, not even at the Avondale market, but at least I now know how it should smell.
