“Mantra teaches the wisdom of a healthy, balanced dessert with style and sophistication.” (Dr. Mehmet Oz)

Format: Hardcover
this book takes an unusually ingredient-centric approach to cooking: each recipe is focused on a single ingredient, and the book itself is broken down into sections like "herbs," "flowers," and so on. i actually like this, because it helps you focus on the flavors and range of that ingredient. each recipe also features a short paragraph about the cultural history of the showcased ingredient; these make for good reading while waiting for the pot to boil. in all, the book is quite easy to read, and the few recipes i've tried were not that difficult to pull off. there's also a ton of really nice pictures, which is always a plus and takes the guesswork out of plating.

This book provided me with the info that I was looking for although I wish the chef would have included foods on the savory side along with the sweet.I hope to work with him one day soon to see how he uses Ayurveda at his restaurants.
