More than a cookbook, Food & Life is an ode to food and to the art of delicious and healthful cuisine. 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. Filled with imagery both beautiful and instructive, this volume features explanations of the nutritional virtues of fruits, vegetables, beans, grains, meats and fish—and their effects on our physical and mental well-being—plus delicious gourmet recipes balanced for all seasons and all stages of life.
