Product description

This is more than just another recipe book. It celebrates food and asks us to experience the magic of preparing it. It introduces us to the possibility of making cooking and eating an exquisite, meditative, occasion - an antidote to our fast food junk culture. Ultimately, our enjoyment of things depends on the quality of attention we give them. Cooking and eating are no exception. To help you do this, the 'Zenecdotes' accompanying the moody pictures in this book will put a Buddha smile on your face as you wait for the bread to rise...
