Ancient Wisdom, Modern Kitchen coverAncient Wisdom, Modern Kitchen: Recipes from the East for Health, Healing, and Long Life, a winner in the 2010 International Book Awards, reveals how easy it is to tap into the 3,000-year-old secrets of the Eastern healing arts. This entertaining and easy-to-use book provides scores of delicious recipes, anecdotes about various herbs and foods, and all you need to know about acquiring ingredients–even if you don’t know the difference between a lotus seed and the lotus position. Highlighting “superfoods” such as goji berries, as well as more familiar ingredients like ginger, garlic, and mint, it includes an overview of traditional Chinese medicine, herbs and food therapy, details on 100 healthy Asian ingredients, and recipes for a wide range of common health concerns, including fatigue, menopause, high cholesterol, weight control, and diabetes. Publishers Weekly says “the three authors of this well-penned title highlight key concepts of east Asian herbal cooking, and lucidly explain their holistic approach to cooking.” (Da Capo Press/Perseus)
