As an ardent carnivore, not to mention global grilling fanatic, I picked up this ode to vegan joy with skepticism. Imagine my surprise to be rewarded with a thoughtful meditation on cooking with conscience, mindful eating, community connection, and some really good, 100 percent animal-free food. In the best culinary memoir tradition, Ellen Kanner turns her kitchen into an observatory of the human condition. Change what you eat, then change your life, then change the world,’ she writes in her introduction. With Feeding the Hungry Ghost, she already has.”
— Steven Raichlen, author of The Barbecue Bible
A mindful, meatless, and irreverent recipe for a reverent life, Feeding the Hungry Ghost is a delicious read.”
— Marisa Miller Wolfson, director of Vegucated
Ellen Kanner warms the spirit with her witty meditations on food and its place in friendship, family, and culture, accompanied by delectable fare that’s more than the sum of its plant-strong ingredients. Feeding the Hungry Ghost encapsulates all that goes into a truly nourished life.”
— Nava Atlas, author of Wild about Greens

Write another book, Ellen Kanner! I'll be the first in line to read it!
After many years of disordered eating, having developed a fear of food and nourishing myself without guilt this book has been part of the process of bringing my mind set back to equilibrium. It's beautiful, descriptive way if discussing foods - flavours, scents, textures - has reignited an excitement to eat. I want to make and enjoy every recipe in the book and be transported to the places and times that the author describes when telling of the history and culture of the dishes and ingredients.
A note on the 'vegan' thing - yes, I was already eating plant-based and the author also - but don't think for a second that this book will exclude you or send you into a shame spiral if you don't currently, and can't ever see yourself ever, eating a vegan diet. The foods and recipes may be vegan at their core but this only serves to encourage their inclusiveness. Everyone eats a vegan diet in the most basic sense, some just choose to add animal products to this base of vegetables, fruits and grains. The author discusses her own journey to veganism but without judgement of those that don't adopt this lifestyle or an expectation that you will change. The books main goal, I feel, is to reignite an appreciation and love for food and food culture - getting back to the kitchen, surrounded by loved ones and nourishing our bodies and souls.
