"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

but. BUT. that being said, the book is overall just too personal for me. i'd never read lily's blog, so i guess i wasn't expecting it.
if when describing matcha coconut cream parfaits with jasmine shortbread, you begin by saying: "i can't stand not to talk about sex."
...you'll probably like this book.
if you then go on to say something like: "i feel suffocated by people who would prefer not to discuss their last orgasm or the weird places they've had sex or the crazy things they've dreamed about while not having sex..." well, you'll probably love it. (are we still talking about parfaits, here??)
as for me, well. i guess... i like my cookbooks to be sex-free. i dunno, maybe i'm the weirdo here.
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!!!
The recipes are perfect for an impatient cook like me, yet full of wonderful discoveries that will take you on a journey across your five senses. Thank you for sharing your story and passion, Lily.
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!

Apart from that, the photos are amazing, and the book is written with so much love and personal insight that it feels a bit like reading a novel, which makes it all the more fun. So glad I found this!
