When Andrew Weil and Sam Fox opened True Food Kitchen, they did so with a two-fold mission: every dish served must not only be delicious, but it must promote the diner's wellbeing. TRUE FOOD supports the same mission, with freshly imagined recipes that are seasonal, inviting, and easy to make. Showcasing fresh, high-quality ingredients and simple preparations with robust, satisfying flavors, TRUE FOOD demonstrates how easy it is to eat well at home. With essays on topics ranging from farmer's markets to proper proportions, the book includes more than 125 original recipes from Dr. Weil and chef Michael Stebner, such as Curried Cauliflower Soup, Corn and Ricotta Cheese Ravioli and Vegetables with Parmesan Broth, Spicy Shrimp and Asian Noodles, Bison Umami Burgers, Chocolate Icebox Tart, Pomegranate Martini, and much, much more.
""Andrew Weil is a rare member of a special class of diet gurus: he appreciates good food. This shows in his philosophy of healthy eating-if meals are delicious, people will eat them. It also shows in every recipe in this book. Weil and his colleagues encourage adventurous eating and some of the ingredients may be unfamiliar, but even the simplest recipe-tomato and watermelon salad, for example-will make mouths water.""
