36 of 36 people found the following review helpful By Simone Gabbay on July 5, 1999
Format: Paperback
I opened the pages of this title expecting to read an extraordinary cookbook, but I found much more: a handbook for conscious living and for celebrating life in the food energies that we take in as nourishment for body and soul.
How many of us realize that the thoughts we entertain in our minds and hearts while we cook have a direct, tangible effect on the nourishing potential of the food we prepare for ourselves and our loved ones, family, or friends? If we think of kitchen work as drudgery and grumble and groan over the chores of meal preparation, how can we expect such a meal to taste well and be easily digested? If, on the other hand, we consciously channel positive, loving energy through our hearts and hands into the foods that we cook, we will create a meal that not only tastes wonderful but also heals and regenerates those who eat it.
The authors, Robin Robertson, a professional chef, cooking teacher, food writer, and author of five cookbooks, and Jon Robertson, an accomplished writer, editor, author, and researcher of sacred literature and spiritual philosophies, have put together a comprehensive manual for reclaiming the sacred in the seemingly mundane process of food preparation. Too often, valuable energy is wasted when cooking and meal times are regarded as time robbers which prevent us from accomplishing what we believe to be more important tasks. Correspondingly, we try to cut corners with nutritionally deficient fast foods and meals eaten "on the run."
The Robertsons suggest that by changing our attitude toward food preparation and by allowing the process of cooking to become a flowing meditation exercise, we can rediscover the art of creating meals that are truly wholesome and healing.

Format: Paperback
This book opened my eyes and my mind to what can truly be achieved through cooking. I have never really been one for cookbooks - but this is much more than that. This book contains not only recipes for the stomach, but recipes for the spirit as well. The sidebar quotes are inspirational - and I have now learned how to turn my eating space into a "Centered Dining Experience."
Thank you Jon and Robin for opening my eyes and my mind to experiences and wonderful tastes that I never would have imagined. I am looking forward to more "Sacred" books.
This book should be featured on Oprah.

This book is so interesting to me because it includes the spiritual, as well as, the mechanics of cooking. It makes cooking a joy instead of a chore. Anyone who cares about making their kitchen sacred will love the the ideas presented in this book.
