More than just another recipe book, Quiet Food celebrates food and the experience of preparing it. It introduces the possibility of making cooking and eating an exquisite, meditative occasion—an antidote to fast-food culture. This recipe book gently challenges us not just to slow down, but also to experience the enchantment of preparing and consuming food. It advocates a reflective dimension to these normally rushed, mundane activities and provides “Zenecdotes” that accompany the photos to help chefs achieve the proper mindset for appreciating food and the process of cooking it.
