Description-
  • "We're hungry for more than food," writes the author. "We're hungry for connection, joy, meaning, completion, truth." The foods every culture uses to mark milestones and seasons honor this multifaceted hunger and feed the "hungry ghost," a Tao concept about restless souls still "hungry" beyond the grave. Ellen Kanner serves up vegan recipes that satisfy these cravings, including DIY Matzo, When All Else Fails Pasta, and Caribbean Christmas Pepper Pot. In a voice as appealing as her recipes, Kanner seasons her text with warm, wise stories (helping kids plant a garden; hanging out at farmers' markets; meeting Marcel, a Haitian who marks loss with soup) that show why "Often, the best way to exercise your faith and serve the world comes in choosing what you eat for dinner."

    A combination of writing about food and food traditions, descriptions of cultural and religious traditions where food is central (from Haiti soup night to a recipe for a dish to break the fast of Ramadan). The book is broken into parts: seeds; flowering; harvest; compost. She includes Judeo-Christian, Haitian, Turkish, Muslim, African, Mexican, traditions, both religious and secular, around food and how people use food to soothe, celebrate, commemorate, grieve, and connect with each other. The author is active in the sustainable eating movement and writes regularly for the Huffington Post (meatless Monday blog); Gourmet; and local Miami newsletters.

About the Author-
  • Ellen Kanner is an award-winning food writer, Huffington Post's Meatless Monday blogger, and the syndicated columnist Edgy Veggie. She is published in Bon Appetit, Eating Well, Vegetarian Times, Every Day with Rachael Ray, and Culinate, as well as in other online and print publications. She's an ardent advocate for sustainable, accessible food, serving on the Miami boards of Slow Food and Common Threads. From teaching underserved students to cook to speaking about what we're hungry for, Ellen keeps a busy schedule of appearances and presentations but always has time to tend her tiny organic vegetable garden, hike in the Everglades, make friends with a cow, or make dinner with friends. There's always room for more at her table. She believes in close community, strong coffee, organic food, and red lipstick. A fourth-generation Floridian, she lives "la vida vegan" in Miami with her husband.
