Abstract
Seven essays, including recipes, written to encourage the personal investment in cooking which elevates food to a level higher than simple nourishment. As Alice Waters points out, that for every minute we save by using "ready-made", mass produced foods we lose a great deal in terms of quality of life. Eating is a fundamental part of everyone's life, and consequently we have endowed food with tremendous significance. We have built rituals around food, used it to cure ourselves, given it as gifts, and centered social occasions around it. Eating is more than a matter of survival because food has the power to nourish us spiritually as well as physically. Yet modern society relegates food to the role of fuel. These essays should reveal not only the rewards of cooking, but the ways in which cooking is its own reward.
