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.
