My Thoughts: This is not a cookbook it is a book about passion of food and life, the spirituality, energy and emotion behind food, cooking and eating. Through this you will discover a new relationship with food and spirit. This beautiful book teaches how to appreciate what food does and how it affects the body on each level. As a working single mom of six I had completely and totally lost all passion for cooking and even began inhaling my food to get on with other chores, this book has given me back my desire to create in the kitchen and then experience the enjoyment of relaxing and consuming while appreciating what I am eating and how this will sustain me and my loved ones. Well done. This book was delightfully unexpected. Five Stars. Publisher’s Synopsis: Provocative and insightful, this eclectic, inspiring, and beautiful book will open your eyes to the remarkable link between nourishment and spiritual awakening. Filled with ancient wisdom, practical advice, intriguing personal anecdotes, vibrant ceremonies, and original dishes lavishly illustrated with color photographs, the Mystic Cookbook brings to life a wealth of recipes and a myriad of experiences from places as far-reaching as Mexico, Italy, Vietnam, France, North Africa, and India as well as from mystical, legendary, and mythic realms. In Denise and Meadow Linn’s extraordinary book, learn little-known secrets about the food we eat and how it can mystically transform your life!

The Mystic Cookbook reads more like novel than a cookbook. A change for me. Written by mother and daughter team Denise and Meadow Linn, The Mystic Cookbook is part magic, part mystery, and a much, much smaller part actual cookbook. I have a deep fascination with the exploration of tradition around food, and when I cracked the spine of this book I was hoping to satisfy my curiosity a bit, naively assuming that this was attached to Mysticism.  I mean who started cooking chicken soup when one was sick? How did they know it would be an effective remedy? I was able to summise from The Mystics Cookbook that a fair amount  of tradition that surronds food is not necessarily rooted in knowledge but rather in intuition. Hmm.. I like that. Combing through the portions of the book around food intutition, healing intuition and even the power of food memories was a thrill, I wanted more. As the book digressed into  the healing power of sound, the preservation power of pyramids, and the energy of crystals I felt lost, confused, and overwhelmed. As a non mystic myself (in spite of my upbringing in a hippie family) I personally felt this was an attempt to cram too much into one book and the result was a watered down version of all things spiritual and mystical. When the book finally arrived in the recipe world, well, I don’t know what I was expecting but I suppose with a title like The Mystic Cookbook I was expecting something mystical. Potato salad, egg salad, and chicken salad did not fit the bill. With a selection of 45 recipes I sadly did not find much inspiration. Albeit some recipes were more globally focused than the all American fare mentioned above. Maybe at the end of the day the question is: What is mystical food? or perhaps What ISN”T mystical food? Perhaps the bit that I am missing is that all food is mystical, powerful, healing. It’s not in the food specifically but rather the treatment of the food, the feeling behind the cooking process, the belief system or memory attached to the food that makes it, well, mystical. I can get behind that, but my foodie self is still snobbishly chanting, but couldn’t you get a little more creative than potato salad?
