The recipes offer plenty of latitude and versatility if you wish to mash-up a few into new creations. You can even ask for guidance here if you need any tips or assistance in re-creating these dishes. Buen provecho!
From the Foreward by Dr. Robert Svoboda - Ayurvedic Physician & Author:
Chef Naga, author of Gaia Gourmet, is a long-time vegetarian whose approach to living yogically is exemplified in his cuisine. His culinary alchemy yields outstanding meals layered with dimensions of flavor. Locally-procured organically grown produce combined with well-chosen, meticulously proportioned spices and a wide variety of protein-rich nuts, seeds and legumes results in well-rounded, nutrient-dense dishes. He focuses in his recipes on bringing vata back into balance, given that all aspects of our fast-paced, globally-connected modern reality promote vata overload.
Ideally you will experience the talents of Chef Naga by visiting The Sanctuary and enjoying his creations as a lodger in one of Mama Gaia’s grandest expressions of beauty and tranquility, but if that is not currently possible, this cookbook is the next best thing to having these delectable preparations served to you there. Enjoy!
