    DescriptionFlorencia Clifford is a Zen cook. In this evocative and powerful book, we move seamlessly from Buddhist retreats in an isolated farmhouse in mid Wales, to the hills of Florencia's childhood in Argentina, and back again. She describes her experiences in sensual detail: the subtle and magical shifts in herself, the seasons, and the people around her. Along the way, she shares recipes and her insights. A journey of cooking and healing, taking us into a deep and sensuous understanding of the food she prepares, and of the world around us.
