The best cooking method to retain the vitamins in food

We can cook and eat as much fresh food but if we cook it wrongly, all the good vitamins sadly will be destroyed. So in order not to waste our effort, this book reminds us to use the correct cooking method to preserve the vitamins. Steaming and sauteing are the best cooking method to retain most of the water-soluble vitamins in the food.
