Spring is here in New England (or so we hope.) And in other exciting news, after 11 years, the paperback of my seminal work, “Spoonful of Ginger” is finally being published. Knopf did a beautiful job and even my editor, Judith Jones, is amazed at how stunning the book is! (And the price is EXTREMELY reasonable.)
For the uninitiated, ” Spoonful of Ginger” took 7 years to research and write. After many years of being fascinated with the concept of ” food as medicine”, I undertook the project to explore the topic in depth. I traveled all over the world, seeking out “food as medicine” healers, doctors, and cooks. This book chronicles my travels and profiles those people. I, also, compiled a treasury of some of my favorite, delicious, and health-giving recipes, many of which were adapted from cooks and healers.
To celebrate, we are launching a series of videos that offer viewers a “taste” of the food in the book. So here is a wonderful Spicy Stir – Fried Chicken with Vegetables.
