Product Description

Review

'this book delivers countless inventive options for non-meat eaters in a charming and uncomplicated way.' -- Choice Magazine 'This is a very beautiful book and its author a wonderfully imaginative and artistic soul ... This book is about food, it is also about life and how we relate to the world. Amongst the many recipes there are stories of her childhood, of adult experiences about her understanding of life and about the way plants and nutrition should be understood. She is a devotee of biodynamic food and is able to explain in clear and accessible language the nature of a threefold plant and why it is important to prepare a meal in such a way that a balance of root, leaf and flower/seed is always included ... Most recipe books sit on the shelf till they are needed. This one can be read through almost like a novel. It is an excellent read for anyone wishing to bring new life and interest to the magic of cooking and food preparation.' -- Bernard Jarman, former Executive Director of the Biodynamic Agricultural Association 'I would recommend the book to existing Moosewood and whole-food fans, plus anyone who receives an organic fruit and vegetable box or grows their own fruit and veg.' -- We Don't Eat Anything With a Face blog 'The Living Kitchen is Jutka Harstein's celebration of good health and deliciousness, overflowing with easy-to-follow recipes: a bountiful resource for your kitchen.' -- OM Yoga

I went to the launch of this book in Edinburgh on 12/10/ 12 and was unexpectedly treated to a splendid, three course informal dinner when I had been told it was just to be a "few small taster dishes " , and met Jutke . Her food is delicious. The book she has written is warm and interesting , like the lady herself. It is illustrated with drawings throughout , and reads well with anecdotes, histories and the story of her life in Israel and Hungary interspersed with the recipes.Jutke does as she says she hopes and has written a book that "chooses to nourish body, soul and spirit".

The recipes are pretty fine too !

HASH(0x9ccc6450) out of 5 stars I didn't just read Jutka's book. I worked at ... 19 Oct. 2015
By M Stein - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I didn't just read Jutka's book. I worked at Kibbutz harduf where her restaurant is based and harvested the vegetables that she serves in her delicious meals. I read this cookbook under a thatch roof hut next to our camp kitchen and I was mesmerized by the stories she wove, the philosophy she preached, and the simple elegance of her recipes. She served me herself and was so gracious and friendly. I couldn't buy a hard copy to bring home with me because i had another 3 weeks of backpacking left to do but I now I'm finally getting my copy!
