More About the Author

ERIC LECHASSEUR has been working as a professional chef since 1985. He holds a professional Cooking Diploma from Quebec, Canada, has completed several additional training programs in France and Japan, and holds a certificate of recognition from the Kushi Institute International, which he received personally from Michio Kushi. As a private chef he cooked for many celebrities including Madonna, Tobey Maguire, Sting, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Keenan Ivory Wayans.

Eric began his macrobiotic journey in 1993 to help combat his wife Sanaes medical problems. From that point, his interest in macrobiotics grew, and Eric is now a sought-after chef specializing in macrobiotics and healthy, delicious and eye-catching cuisine. Eric has also succeeded in using his macrobiotic practices to cure his own crippling allergies.

He is the author of "love, eric," an internationally successful cookbook of gourmet vegan macrobiotic pastries. In collaboration with his wife Sanae Suzuki, he published his second cookbook, love, eric & sanae, featuring exquisite seasonal vegan macrobiotic cuisine. He has been featured in many prominent magazines such as Variety, Alternative Medicine, Venice, Los Angeles Times, as well as on radio and TV.

In Autumn 2008, Eric opened his long-awaited vegan organic macrobiotic cafe seed in Venice, California. Some of the creations for seed are the favorites of his celebrity clients.

SANAE SUZUKI is a Whole Health Macrobiotic Counselor, Flower Essences Practitioner, and Certified Therapeutic Massage Therapist for people and pets.
She is a long-time student of Michio Kushi, world leader of Macrobiotic education, and completed all Level IV training at the Kushi Institute in Becket, MA. She also holds a certificate of recognition from Kushi Institute International for macrobiotic teaching.

She was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 1993, which inspired her to learn about macrobiotics as a path to healing. Eight years later, she suffered a near fatal car accident in the Arizona desert. She was able to overcome both of these extreme life challenges through practicing and embracing the philosophy of macrobiotics.

It is her desire to help plant a seed of physical, intellectual, and spiritual happiness that will flourish within each person she meets.

Her new cookbook, love, sanae features vegan macrobiotic healing recipes and her journey of macrobiotics.

I was shocked how few recipes there are in this book. Yes the photo's are pretty and well done but it is a picture book more than a recipe book. I have cooked vegan macrobiotic for a number of years and was hoping for more new recipes. The price of this book is outrageous for what it has to offer. Save you money, there are better vegan macrobiotic books out there with way more recipes!!! If I could return this book I would!

I love the cupcakes in Seed kitchen. I have bought more than 50 for sure. I really love them. I love baking and I've baked for over 10 years. I think I am pretty good. I bought this book because I wanted to do the cupcakes in my house as Seed Kitchen no longer sells the cupcakes in his store. Well, I was really disappointed because I followed exactly the recipe for the cupcakes from this book but it wasn't close at all to the taste in the restaurant. I have followed many recipes in hundreds of books and this is the first one I know there is some ingredients missing. I understand that Chefs want to keep secrets to themselves because they have worked hard for creating their recipes... However, why then selling a book for 30 dollars when you are not telling all the necessary ingredients for the recipes. And please, don't tell me baking is a science and I'm making mistakes because I'm measuring everything. Mathematics is a science and I don't think anyone makes any mistake with calculations like 2+2=4
The recipe is missing something because I've tried to bake the cupcakes many times already and nothing. If Eric answers this, I want to know what is missing or exactly tell me all the brands you use for your cooking. I spent lots of money and I don't want to hear I'm making something wrong.

The recipes are healthy and delicious.

Note:

Of the 48 recipes, 11 require Kombu, 4 require Kudzu, and 4 require a Pickle Press.

Other unusual ingredients used in at least one recipe are:
hijiki, nori flakes, burdock root, grated mochi, barley miso, mirin, lotus seeds & root, shiso leaves, jinenjo root, Kukicha, umeboshi vinegar, arame, kamut spaghetti, dulse, agar flakes, Vegenaise, wakame.

Most of these are likely available at a market that sells Japanese/ Asian foods.

These seem like nice recipes, and require a lot of work, but often don't turn out looking much the photos. I wonder if anyone actually tried them out. It seems like there must be a lot of photo editing, or there are a lot of tips you should know that aren't specified.

I wish this chef would come out with something more tried and tested.

I love this cookbook. It's so important to eat and cook seasonally, yet there are few macrobiotic books (at least yummy ones) that help in this way. This book is just as lovely as his first cookbook, but with main meals included. Also has many desserts.
