An ode to the art of delicious and healthful cuisine, Food & Life is a new way
to understand food: This cookbook may just change your life. Whereas today’s fashionable diets create deficiencies and imbalances, and deprive us of part of the joy of living, Food & Life is a celebration of food as an integral part of happiness. World-renowned chef Joël Robuchon offers delicious gourmet recipes balanced for all seasons and all stages of life, and respected acupuncturist and neuropharmacologist Dr. Nadia Volf provides detailed explanations of the nutritional virtues of fruits, vegetables, beans, grains, meats and fish—and their effects on our physical and mental well-being.
I love to cook … most of the time. I have always cooked from scratch as I find it healthier, but some gourmet recipes are anything but healthy.
Then there’s this book.
For the first time in a long while, I am finally inspired enough to cook gourmet recipes because these are actually good for you! The recipes are not overly complicated and yet some ingredients may be a bit tricky to find. It has a good range of recipes that include those that are easy to make, but it also includes some that are a bit fancy.
