Full description for Ancient Wisdom, Modern Kitchen
This title deals with ancient Asian practices of cooking with healing herbs and other therapeutic foods to Western palates and kitchens. "Ancient Wisdom, Modern Kitchen" reveals how easy it is to tap into the 3,000-year-old secrets of East Asian healing arts. This entertaining and easy-to-use book provides scores of delicious recipes, anecdotes about various herbs and foods, and all you need to know about acquiring ingredients-even if you don't know the difference between a lotus seed and the lotus position. The recipes are simple, easy-to-prepare, and healthy East Asian dishes-still largely unknown in the West, but begging to cross the cultural divide-as well as recipes that might seem familiar, but with an unexpected twist, such as oatmeal with walnuts and goji berries or chicken soup with ginseng. Drawing on family recipes, years of study of traditional Chinese medicine at institutions in China and in the United States, and experience treating patients in the traditional Chinese medical clinic, Wang, Sheir, and Ono put healthy recipes using Chinese herbs at your fingertips to enhance your life, promote a sense of wellbeing, and increase your longevity.
