About the Author
Wellness entrepreneur, world-traveling chef and passionate food educator, Amanda Chantal Bacon began her journey toward health at a young age. Sick with chronic respiratory ills that proved unresponsive to antibiotics and other Western medicine, she credits her recovery to an Ayurvedic doctor who removed sugar, wheat and dairy from her diet and saved her life. After graduating high school in her native New York City, Bacon traveled across Europe, South America and New Zealand, working in restaurant kitchens and developing a love for the diverse cultures and flavors of each region.
Back in the U.S., Bacon studied at the New England Culinary Institute in Vermont, which raised her consciousness on the importance of sustainability, sourcing and collaborating with local producers. She continued her culinary journey, working in the kitchens of celebrated Los Angeles restaurants like Lucques and Canele, and serving as assistant food and wine editor for Los Angeles Times Magazine. The gestalt of her professional food experience, world travels and immersion in Eastern wellness finally led Bacon to become a wellness entrepreneur with her launch of Moon Juice in January 2012.

Hopefully when you purchase this cookbook, you will be familiar with the Moon Juice brand and not be surprised by the recipes and the ingredients they feature. This is not a cookbook with which one can shop in a local grocery store, heck even Whole Foods would be a long shot for some items -though to be fair there are plenty of others that use easily sourced ingredients such as chia seeds, nuts, milks, coconut. But there are also recipes that call for Kombu strips, lucuma powder, mesquite powder and colloidal silver. I write this not to discourage potential buyers, but just so they are aware what they are getting into before a purchase. There are also more than 75 recipes so you can be sure to find things that appeal to your tastes, pantry or cooking ability.
The premise of the book is food as medicine which is something I have always strongly believed in. It is plant based and begins with a story of the author, plagued by sickness as a child, given medicine as a remedy, with still no resolution. Years later, though experimenting with food and herbs learned that these can be just as much, if not more of a remedy in helping us look and feel our best. The book also, importantly, takes us away from healthy being a quick fix to more of a lifelong journey.
With that we being with the 10 pillars of the moon kitchen, which include consuming good fats, enjoying cultured and fermented foods, and eating organic. There is an incredible guide to “High functioning foods” - foods that can detoxify, provide immunity, boost metabolism, brain food, Inflammation tamer – I found this fascinating and different from traditional guides. There is a kitchen guide -equipment to have, pantry staples (note, as expected a juicer and dehydrator are both suggested pieces to own).
Then we go to the recipes: Juices (cucumber pineapple jalapeno was amazing, with a kick that reminded me of my favorite cocktail only far healthier); milks, Moon milks, shakes and lattes, and I really liked the simplified recipe for Golden milk which is something I currently drink nightly, albeit with a store bought powder, so this is easy and cheaper. Then broth bowls, yoghurt, cheese and Kefir; Fermented vegetables, cosmic provisions (think snacks and basics.
We finish on a sweet note with the bakery section, raw of course and raw chocolate which beings with cacao paste and butter but serves as a base for so many fun recipes.
As this book states, it is not an ordinary cookbook, its an alchemist cookbook, think of combining lots of sometimes unusual but high functioning foods to deliver tasty outcomes that heal. It is for the adventurous cook, someone looking beyond the basic raw cookbook and someone that want to experiment making potions that sooth, heal and target specific health functions. It’s a bit like a mad chemistry book in parts but I love the originality, the story and the stunning pictures. One for the coffee table or the kitchen!
Overall: good book for people trying to get atop the "superfoods" guidelines and repair a relationship with food.
Beware, reading this may change the way you look at food/nutrition.
The photography is stunning!
