About this title

Synopsis:

Ayurveda, a 3,000 year old Indian science ensuring the total health of mind, body, and spirit, is one of the fastest growing alternative health models today. Publications from Vegetarian Times and Prevention Magazine to Business Week herald the growth of interest in Ayurveda-- a $2 billion market-- and the Maharishi Ayur-Veda Institute is the preeminent marketer of Ayurvedic products in the U.S. and worldwide. Research shows that Ayurvedic practices strengthen the body, enhance the immune system, and perform a wide range of preventative functions. Miriam Hospodar's twenty-year culinary journey has culminated in a major work that is as inspiring as it is comprehensive. Heaven's Banquet offers an accessible, informed, and passionate approach to transforming your cooking, and your health, with Ayurvedic principles. The recipes come from all over the world --Europe and the Mediterranean; China, Japan, Southeast Asia; the Jewish and Middle Eastern culinary traditions; and the Americas. Hospodar has guidance for the "new vegetarian" and for those cooking on "terrible schedules." She offers options for sugar-free, salt-free, dairy-free, and wheat-free diets, and provides a full complement of recipes in every category-- from appetizers and finger foods through main courses and desserts. Heaven's Banquet is a cookbook with a philosophy, a voice, and a mission. It is a landmark work that will be a standard for years, even generations, to come.

From the Inside Flap:

For twenty years Miriam Kasin Hospodar traveled between three continents, gathering recipes inspired by the age-old Eastern wisdom of Ayurveda. "Heaven's Banquet" is the remarkable result of her culinary journey, a definitive sourcebook of healthful and delicious vegetarian cooking. In more than 700 recipes and variations, "Heaven's Banquet" draws from a rich palette of international cuisines and shows how to match your diet to your mind-body type for maximum health and well-being. Using recipes that have been tested in places ranging from a five-star Swiss hotel kitchen to a charcoal-filled pit in the Philippines, Hospodar brings us such exotic dishes as Thai Corn Fritters, Asian-Cajun Eggplant Gumbo, Persian-Style Millet with Dried Cherries, Moussaka, Scottish Shortbread, West African Avocado Mousse, and Mocha-Spice Cake with Coffee Cream Frosting. Her recipes will appeal to everyone from the beginning cook to the experienced chef. But "Heaven's Banquet" is more than a cookbook. It is an invaluable guide to a holistic lifestyle that will enhance your entire life as it balances your mind, soul, and body. You'll discover the most effective methods of preparing food, the benefits of eating seasonally for your type, and how to create a diet tailored to your entire family. A special feature of "Heaven's Banquet" is its dessert section, which features egg-free cakes, cookies and puddings. There are also special sections on how to lose weight and control sugar sensitivity, a detailed questionnaire to help you determine your mind-body type, and essential ingredients for a well-stocked Ayurvedic kitchen. Timeless and timely, "Heaven's Banquet" shows you how to use food to tap into your body's intelligence to create lifelong health.
