For those interested or keen to make the move to Macrobiotic eating (often resulting from illness or a desire to get "back to nature" this is a fine book which focuses on the practicalities of this often rigorous diet, but including an explanation on the origins and principles of macrobiotics. Covered with a good style and humour the dishes are easy enough to follow, (assuming you can find all of the often unusual ingredients - Sainsburys were a big help here) although some dishes tried seemed rather bland and could do with some spicing up! There are a good range of recipies however so there is hope yet as we work through them! Recommended reading however if you are planning trying Macrobiotics.
I have been aware of this book for many years and finally have my own copy! It is informative and easy to understand. I prize it, not least, for the gorgeous illustrations - done with felt pens!! A pleasure to read, to cook with and to eat the consequences. The recipes are delicious.
