Vegetarian cooking in particular, has always seemed so time-consuming and complicated to me, yet Kamala Devi’s recipes magically combine complexity of flavours with simplicity of preparation and accessibility of ingredients. I find her instructions simple, clear and easy to follow.

My favourite section is the ‘Substantial Dishes’ and my children say I make the BEST vegetarian curry (straight from The Conscious Cook of course). The Conscious Cook is a work of art and an act of devotion. I enjoy the illustrations and photos Kamala Devi has chosen and love discovering the words of wisdom and inspiration that she has laced throughout her cookbook. Gently she encourages and reminds us to be present and conscious of our relationship with food and how we prepare and serve it. What a great boon this is!

Created from the heart, The Conscious Cook is much more than a vegetarian recipe book, it is a guide for daily health and living. Simply written, profoundly therapeutic, it has easy to follow procedures and exquisite recipes. Kamala treats food with the respect that it deserves. She addresses special dietary needs without putting extreme limitations on the normal diner. I am inspired by reading over and over the wise quotations that Kamala has so beautifully interwoven throughout.
