Editorial Reviews


A few years ago I hadthe amazing opportunity of staying at Avital's home for a few days. Avital is avery vibrant and generous woman! For me, looking at a photo of one of her foodcreations is similar to looking at Avital, so full of crisp vitality. I was alittle concerned that the menu would not contain enough protein or lack taste,but what I experienced was a significant change in how I experienced food - howit was prepared, how it tasted, and how it felt in my body.
Like many of us, I fearthat raw and vegan dishes will leave me hungry or dissatisfied. By the time myvisit was over, I felt nourished, energetic and grateful to Avital forintroducing me to a healthier way of eating.
Zen practice teaches usto rest in the moment in order to allow our mind to pen to our innate wisdomand compassion. To rest in the moment does not require any altering of ourconsciousness or striving for some other state of being. Zen teaches that wealready contain the seeds of enlightenment and all we need to do is wake up injust this moment. This awakening allows us to see the beautiful grace andsymmetry of this world.
Avital's book is aperfect example of Zen being brought forth into nutrition. Rather than alteringand adding to our food, artificially coloring it or cooking the life out of it,Avital shows us how to allow food to be celebrated and honored for what it isin its natural state. We could exchange the word 'food'
for the word 'mind'. Wemeditate to see our original mind. We eat healthy food in order to return toour original balanced and healthy self.

From the Author

This book is a life-long project containing all the practical knowledge I have acquired over the years, concerning quality seasonal food.
The basic idea for the five seasons is taken from the five elements of the Chinese school, which serves as a basis for my clinical research, its application in the kitchen and in my life.
The seasons of the year are divided into 4, as we've been led to believe, by western culture; yet in the east, in Chinese philosophy, another season was added - "late summer"; this short season is highly important, occurring between summer and fall.
You can read all about the importance of the seasons, the colors, the tastes, the mood, the related parts of the body and the philosophy itself, in the various abundant books on Chinese medicine available today.
For part of the work on the book design we used colors and features to characterize each chapter as well as each season's meaning.
The recipes themselves can tell you what mother earth yields each season.
It was important for me to convey to you the exciting and artistic experience, which comes out of each recipe, and give you the urge to roll up your sleeves and enter the kitchen.
The recipes are light, not complicated; the raw materials are exact, punctilious and qualitative, so as to enable us to get the maximum nutrition input for maintaining healthy cells in our body, to promote our vitality. 
My amazing production team:
The talented Michal Lenart won the tender for photographer.  The decision was hard, but Michal's qualifications connected so well to my ideas of bringing the book, as much as possible, to some exact and natural place. Michal fulfilled this requirement and photographed the recipes during the course of a whole year, every season with its recipes. Using only the natural lighting that came from my kitchen on that specific day.
Upon completing the daily shots, the prepared dishes were eaten immediately/ by the photographer and crew present, testing the tastes and aromas for real!
