Publisher Comments:

Macrobiotics — the healthy, nature-friendly way of life based on a diet of whole grains, vegetables, and beans — is now a global phenomenon. In recent years a number of Hollywood stars have taken up the macrobiotic diet because of its many benefits, which include higher energy levels, beautiful skin, a tranquil mind, and a greater sense of connection with the universe. In Mayumi's Kitchen, the woman who worked for seven years as Madonna's private macrobiotic chef shares with the world her dazzling recipes.

Mayumi Nishimura's unique style of cooking is healthful, intuitive, and easy to stick with. She draws her inspiration not only from Japanese food, which she grew up eating, but also from Chinese, French, Italian, and any number of other world cuisines, as well as from macrobiotic traditions. She believes that enjoyment, above all, is the key to sustainable healthy eating, and that means adapting her cooking to cosmopolitan tastes. The reader will thus discover in her book a number of familiar-looking dishes prepared with macrobiotic as well as more conventional ingredients, in both Western and non-Western styles.

The centerpiece of Mayumi's Kitchen is her ten-day detox diet. Here readers can enjoy a macrobiotic menu that will transform them from the inside out. Following this are meal-planning tips and recipes for more than fifty dishes, including such favorites as Salmon Soup, Avocado Rolls, Vegetable Lasagna, and Seitan Pot Stickers. There is even a party-food section with recipes for spring rolls, tempura, pizza, and more.

In all, Mayumi introduces more than 130 mouthwatering recipes, all lavishly illustrated with color photographs. Many are explained in terms of their nutritional value or energy quality, and unfamiliar techniques are made clear with step-by-step pictures. For beginners and lifelong macrobiotic practitioners alike, these dishes will wow and delight.

bakerymanis, July 15, 2010 (view all comments by bakerymanis)
this lovely cookbook is totally accessible- great for macro novices like me and those more familiar with the cuisine. the photos are lovely and the text is readable and charming, but most importantly, the recipes are amazing. though there are some fish recipes in the book (perhaps four) this book is totally vegan friendly- focusing on earth and sea vegetables, beans, rice, and vegetable protein sources. all ingredients and portions are carefully measured, and all the directions are clear- what she has written covers all the steps needed to create her photo-perfect soups, rice dishes, seitan or tempeh. there is a brief explanation of macrobiotics in general and a glossary to explain some of the less common ingredients also.
