"I am so happy Lily Diamond has expanded her exquisite blog into an actual book. Her ability to frame solid instruction (both herbal and culinary) with a deeper take on what it means to live through our senses is a gift, all articulated through a poetic voice, original and bold." (Mollie Katzen, author of Moosewood Cookbook and The Heart of the Plate)
"Lily’s deep connection to nature is beautifully woven throughout this personal collection of recipes. Whether it’s the healing power of herbs, delicious and unique flavor combinations or the stories of her mother’s natural medicine, Kale & Caramel truly is a book for body, heart and table." (Amy Chaplin, James Beard Award winning author of At Home in the Whole Food Kitchen: Celebrating the Art of Eating Well)
This is a remarkable book of food and longing, tending as much to our deep human need for storytelling as our hunger for vibrant, life-sustaining nourishment. (Rebecca Walker, author of Adé and Black Cool)
"I want to inhale and grow and cook and slather on every single thing in this book! Lily has carefully crafted each recipe to harness the healing powers of flowers and herbs in a simple and accessible way. A gorgeous guide to plant-based self-care!" (Laura Miller, Author of Raw. Vegan. Not Gross.)
“I'm captivated by Lily's story of healing, and how she called upon the innate, beautiful power of plants to nourish body and soul. These are powers available to all of us, and Lily is the perfect guide. It's pure pleasure to dive into Lily's beautiful, delicious world.” (Sarah Copeland, author of Feast)
“Lily is a magician of plants and a wizard of salads, a fierce friend and storyteller. She has coached me through chamomile infusion woes and mint surpluses with the patience and humor of a wise old soul. While I selfishly don't want to share her, with Kale & Caramel the world can finally have its spirulina and eat ice cream too. (It's ok, I didn't know what spirulina was either until Lily came into my life.) Through this book, you will not only learn beautiful new ways of using your favorite garden staples and approachable methods of trying less common ingredients like bee pollen and hemp seeds, but you will also gain a friend, laughter and tears included.” (Molly Yeh, creator of My Name is Yeh and author of Molly on the Range)
“Thank you, Lily Diamond, for your brave and sassy and beautiful words. For your sumptuous photos. For your decadent, comforting, and healthful recipes. And most of all, bless you for teaching me to put olive oil in my mint ice cream, lavender in my hair, and honey on my face.” (Phyllis Grant, author of the Dash and Bella blog)
“Kale & Caramel is full of so many quizzical yet immediately appealing flavor combinations it’s hard to decide which recipe to make first!” (edible, Hawaiian Islands)
“A plant whisperer is born.” (Booklist)

I will buy this book for every birthday/holiday/ any reason for love I can find....for all my friends.
When I have free moments I read a snipet, get inspired, get drawn into her sweet heart and can't wait to cook!
She has woven her heart through the pages with such raw beauty it's hard to put down.
It is truly a whole being experience...prepare for mind heart body to be nourished.
It is my favorite book right now and goes everywhere with me.
A must have for anyone who appreciates authenticity, beauty and of course incredible cuisine. Yummmm!!!
In truth, this book stands apart -- not just for its thrilling recipe ideas that have already shaken up our routine (I mean- lemongrass basil coconut ice cream with black sesame brittle... roasted fig pizza with rosemary chevre & balsamic caramelized onion... braised radicchio, nectrine & burrata flatbread... cucumber rose petal mask... c'MON!) -- but as a bonafide work of art. Each recipe offers such deep care, surprise, subtlety, daring, and reflections so funny, poignant, and sneak-up-on-you-profound that I would just as likely pore through this as my end-of-the-day bedtime reward as I would in preparation for a meal (and I already have). Brava!
This book is part story, part learning, part cooking, part self-care. It's expertly written and makes you see food and plants as our god-given gifts in healing, growing and thriving on this amazing earth.
Lily writes in such a way that you get drawn into the story of the food as you read it -- "in this version, basil sings a dulcet melody to zucchini..." "Rose soothed a dozen broken hearts..."
It's just an absolutely fantastic book, thank you for this gorgeous offering, Lily!!
The combinations of herbs.... flavors.... lavender, jasmine, honey, basil....... she is so deeply connected to nature and food, and it's contagious - in the most beautiful of ways.
Buy this book to fall in love with the magic of food.... and buy this book, because it is full of stories, and beautiful images. Place it on your bedside table, or on your kitchen counter.... but just get. This. BOOK!
A great gift item for anyone you know who really loves food. And life.
