Thou Shalt Eat

Cooking doesn’t have to be a rushed experience, or something we do on auto-pilot, distracted by thoughts, feelings, and inner-dialogue. In fact, of all the tasks we do in our daily lives, cooking offers a wonderful opportunity for us to train ourselves to be present, to be patient, to persevere, to be creative, gentle, generous and to practice self care. Cooking can teach you more than just how to satiate hunger. In this book are 7 lessons and 7 practices that encourage a more wholesome and rewarding experience as well as stories about food and cooking from myself and my father, who along with my mother, taught me to cook and facilitated all of my food experiments.

We sat down in his mayoral chamber and had a conversation about identity, race and camels.
