Review:

"A Huffington Post Meatless Monday columnist, Kanner is on a mission to share healthy international foods, along with a heaping dose of hospitality, to harried, stressed, overworked Americans who want a deeper connection to what they eat. The result is part cookbook, part self-help manual, part inspirational guide. Kanner's vegan recipes are heavy on lentils, barley, and beans; many also require hours of simmering. Along the way, we hear about Kanner's Jewish upbringing, her lapsed Lutheran husband, her Buddhist inclinations, and the couple's trips to Morocco and Japan. Kanner approaches life and food with humor and ease. Her writing is intelligent but folksy; her bits of wisdom sincere and heartwarming. She delights in the flavors of Asia and the Middle East, spicing her hearty fare with heaps of cardamom, cumin, turmeric, and the Moroccan spice blend ras el hanout. If she is a bit too ebullient, it's because she strives to be a kind of healer, dishing communion and world peace around her table." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

“Were hungry for more than food,” writes the author. “Were hungry for connection, joy, meaning, completion, truth.” The foods every culture uses to mark milestones and seasons honor this multifaceted hunger and feed the “hungry ghost,” a Tao concept about restless souls still “hungry” beyond the grave. Ellen Kanner serves up vegan recipes that satisfy these cravings, including DIY Matzo, When-All-Else-Fails Pasta, and African American Sweet Potato and Peanut Stew. In a voice as appealing as her recipes, Kanner seasons her text with warm, wise stories (helping kids plant a garden, hanging out at farmers markets, meeting Marcel, a Haitian who marks loss with soup) that show why often the best way to exercise your faith and serve the world comes in choosing what you eat for dinner.

Synopsis:

What do we turn to for both everyday sustenance and seasonal celebration? Food. Often, though, were like the hungry ghosts of Taoist lore, eating mindlessly, wandering aimlessly, and wanting more — more than food itself can provide. Ellen Kanner believes that if we put in a little thought and preparation, every meal can feed not only our bodies but our souls and our communities as well. Warm, wicked, and one-of-a-kind, Ellen offers an irreverent approach to bringing reverence into daily living — and eating. She presents global vegan recipes that call you to the table, stories that make you stand up and cheer, and gentle nudges that aim to serve up what were hungry for: a more vital self, more loving and meaningful connections, a nourished and nourishing world, and great food, too. Feeding the Hungry Ghost will challenge you to decide: keep reading or start cooking?
