Nourished by Lia Huber
A noted entrepreneur, food writer, and recipe developer serves up an evocative adventure story about her quest to find healing, meaning, and a place at the table.
Hunger comes to us in many forms, writes Lia Huber—we long to be satisfied not just physically, but emotionally and spiritually as well. Nourished invites readers on Huber’s world-roaming search to find the necessary ingredients to nurture all three.
She begins her quest with an Anthony Bourdain moment in a Guatemalan village: she’s slipping fresh vegetables into a communal pot of soup she’s cooking up for chronically undernourished children. Village grannies look on disapprovingly… until the kids come back for more.
From there, Huber takes readers to the Greek island of Corfu, where she learns the joys of simple food and the power of unconditional love; to a Costa Rican jungle house (by way of an 8,000-mile road trip), where she finds hope and healing; and finally to California’s wine country, where she steps into the person she was meant to be and discovers her calling to nourish others.
- I received this book in exchange for review
My Thoughts: As you might already know I’m completely in love with cook books. I love seeing the photography, new ideas on recipes and of course the stories that go along with that. When I agreed to review this book I thought that’s just what it was a pretty cookbook. However it’s actually a novel about the author’s food journey with a few recipes in there. I love that she talks about her travels and how the recipes fit in, a very fun book to read!
