This is so much more than a cookbook! Not only is this gem filled with approachable recipes and helpful tips, Turshen shares honest and personal essays on topics such as body positivity, anxiety and the importance of volunteering. I enjoyed this book so much that I signed up for one of her Saturday afternoon cooking classes and felt like I was spending an afternoon in my kitchen with a longtime friend. By the time the class ended, I was left with enough salad dressings to last for months and MANY tips on how to modify her recipes to accommodate my vegan, vegetarian and diabetic friends and family members.
This book will delight your palate, feed your soul and hopefully spark meaningful conversation at your dinner table. Prepared to be nourished from the inside out!
