Retreat: The Joy of Conscious Eating
Daniel shows us how to create a greater sense of mindfulness in our everyday lives by enjoying a deeper connection with the food that we prepare, and offers a glimpse of what it is like to be on retreat with Daniel.
Photographs by Sarah Kate Schefer accompany the mouth-watering and unusual dishes to reflect Daniel's playful interaction with a wide array of flavours and influences -- from Thai and Japanese, to Moroccan and Indian. The dishes are aimed at aspiring cooks of all levels and are a heartfelt celebration of the joyous communion that we can experience through food and eating.
"My hope is that this book opens up the possibilities for nourishment and growth that cookery can bring; that you find renewed interest in everyday ingredients as well as an introduction to exciting new flavours; and that you explore the joyous possibilities that await you once you truly begin to play with your food." -- Daniel Jardim
