Editorial Reviews

"Part travel log, part nutritional handbook, part medicinal herbal, Cocina Holistica offers a splendid collection of unique, easy to make dishes. Focusing on the traditional foods of Guatemala, Kassia gives each of the recipes a modern twist with easy to find ingredients and simple step-by-step instructions. Each of the recipes in this scrumptiously illustrated cookbook focus on health and well being with an emphasis on nourishing ourselves deeply through the act of artful eating. Special gratitude is paid to each of the farms featured in the book, and a special honoring of the Guatemalan people and their cultural foods. As the author says in her opening remarks, 'This cookbook is a love letter to Guatemala'…. and a lovely love letter it is at that." —Rosemary Gladstar, Herbalist and author of Rosemary Gladstar's Medicinal Herbs: A Beginner's Guide"I knew I would love rifling through the gorgeous images in this cookbook and imagining myself beside Kassia, harvesting such magical foods. What I didn't know, is that I would find most of the recipes accessible and applicable to my day-to-day life! Cocina Holistica offers nutrient-dense, creative and simple versions of my favorite foods. Highly recommend to anyone looking to have fun in the kitchen, expanding their plant-based recipe repertoire and learn valuable information at the same time!"—Laura Lea Bryant, Holistic Chef and author of The Laura Lea Balanced Cookbook: 120+ Everyday Recipes for the Healthy Home Cook
