Life’s Essence, its magic elixir, takes many forms. We find it in friendship, beauty, gratitude, and in the daily joys of cooking and sharing food.
In the Elixir of Life Cookbook – Finding Love and Joy in the Passionate Pursuit of Food, Lisa Dahl travels to Tuscany, Italy, to celebrate the elixirs of the olive and the vine, and the elixir of inspiration that underlies her decades of Italian and Mediterranean influenced cuisine. She brings them home to Sedona, Arizona, where she is executive chef and owner of five amazing restaurants.
Dahl’s interpretation of lusty, rustic, direct Italian cooking includes soups, salads, sauces, versatile side dishes, and delicious antipasti. The recipes in this book feature vibrant components that can be interchanged, recombined, and seasonally adapted for soul-satisfying family meals and easy home entertaining. Many are friendly to vegetarian and vegan lifeways. All are intensely flavorful.
This is a book of beautiful, healthful, and joyful elixirs that will enhance your life.
