This book is unique, as it portrays food as capable of evolving the individual at the same time as giving delight to the mind. It shows how food can be both tasty and healthy at the same time. The food in this book not only tastes divine but it also gives a Taste, for the Divine.
This book is perhaps one of the few cook books which can be read with interest even by those who have no interest in cooking! The reason is that the book does not merely cater to the palate but also to the spirit. The author tries to project a new way of life rather than a few new recipes.
Food is a necessary evil or a necessary delight, depending on whether you eat to live or live to eat. Whatever the choice, food would be doubly delightful if it was capable of evolving the individual at the same time as giving delight to the mind. This is why this book is unique since it endeavours to do both.
It also shows us how food can be both tasty and healthy at the same time. In olden times, children were named after Gods, so that each time we called them, unconsciously we would also be repeating a mantra. Here many of the recipes are called after the name of Krishna and others, by various aspects of yoga. Just the repetition of these names would elevate our level of consciousness. This is thus a cook book with a difference. The food in this book not only tastes divine but it also gives a Taste for the Divine!
