Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

I am very thankful for all of you.

Thanks to the farmers, who worked hard to grow and harvest an abundance of organic produce for us to thrive. Thanks to my family, neighbors, friends, my supportive and loving community for their light, love and opportunities to grow. Thanks to all those that came out to my cooking workshops to discover and taste something new. Thank you to all who came out for an overnight stay in my home. It is such a joy to feed you!

Sea Vegetable Celebration

Sea Vegetable Celebration Cookbook

“This book contains very useful information about a variety of sea vegetables, mostly from the North Atlantic (if I recall, this book has strong ties to Maine Sea Coast Veggies). Very basic recipes demonstrating the versatility of sea veggies – from breakfast to dessert. The only books that I enjoy more (demonstrating the usefulness of sea veggies) would be Cathe Olsen’s A Vegetarian Mother’s Cookbook and The Garden of Eating.”

The Quick and Easy Organic Gourmet: Delicious, Healthy Meals Without Meat, Wheat, Dairy or Sugar

The Quick and Easy Organic Gourmet

“I have hundreds of cookbooks and have been cooking a long time. This cookbook stands out on my shelf. I could never make a really good stir fry until Leslie explained the steps and possible stir fry combinations to me in her cookbook. She also has excellent recipes for sometimes difficult to find vegan, wheatless and sugarless recipes. I love this cookbook. You can gauge a people’s overall condition by the quality of its food. Americans typically allow themselves ill-prepared, ill-presented, fast, neurotic, unhealthy, and tasteless food. Leslie Cerier’s book offers imaginative ways to restore health and taste, providing practical information, great recipes, and a fresh vision of what eating could be.”
