Drum roll please………. For those of you whom are anxious to see the inside of my book, it’s up on Amazon!!! I took most of the photos myself and am so proud of this book. This book of mine has been in the making for at least three years. I could have had 2 children by now. Instead, I birthed a book. You will get a big sneak peak into all the recipes I have been working on for the last three years. You can even start cooking now, as some of the recipes are available to see.
On the cover is a Moroccan Tomato Soup called Harira, which was photographed by Jennifer Jagusak. When I told my mother in law who lives in South Africa that I was writing a cookbook, she sent me this Moroccan recipe that she received from her Muslim neighbors. It’s typically eaten during Ramadan, because it is so hearty. It has everything I love in a soup – filling, sweet, tangy and spicy. A little like me, I think.
Please share this with anyone you know that would appreciate my ancient Central Asian heritage cuisine that I have geared to my vegetarian lifestyle and mindful way of living. I believe what you eat becomes part of the cellular building blocks of your ineffable essence. When food is grown, cultivated and prepared with mindfulness, you become aware of how we are all connected and connecting.
