Every food lover’s mindful guide to reconnecting with nature through food
Our lives have never been so hectic, so controlled by technology, so commodified. We find ourselves with less and less time to invest in nourishment—of both our bodies and our minds. Nutrition, exercise, rest—these are the first to fall by the wayside.
The Calm Kitchen is more than just a recipe book. Following the four seasons, it is a beginner’s guide to reconnecting with nature through food, cookery, and ingredient sourcing as a form of self-care; from the soothing smell of lavender fields, to the simple magic of baking your first loaf of bread on a frosty winter’s night. This book shows how mindful cooking, baking, and ingredient sourcing can lead to better peace of mind, and better health and wellbeing.
Featuring a blend of recipes, including lavender shortbread and perfect fresh strawberry cobbler, this is an informative and insightful guide to ingredients and how they can benefit physical and mental health. It offers a focused, food-oriented, and innovative approach to self-care.
