The haute cuisine fasting book
In this art of cookery book, Eckart Witzigmann and 46 chefs who are closely associated with him prove that true joy in art is to be found in not having too much of anything and having enough of everything. His dishes to eat on Lenten days make a day of fasting a feast day. They show that “almost nothing” can be quite a lot indeed.
“When fasting, then fasting, if partidge then partridge.” In the cultural history of humanity – Teresa of Àvila makes this clear – fasting seems the opposite of celebrating. Alternating between the two of them structures life. Fasting is accorded great significance in all world religions – as a time of penance, of forgoing, of pausing or of preparing for Easter and Christmas celebrations.
Gartenland in Kinderhand
The children’s gardens cookbook
Our kids believe as little in the stork as they do in Santa Claus. But they do believe in the purple Milka cow. They also think that apples arrive in the world ready-made in 6-packs. Many children hardly know the taste of peaches direct from the tree and have never dug a potato out of the ground or picked a tomato from the vine themselves. Why ever not? Because the world of food is crazy.
This children’s gardens cookbook presents flagship projects from the competition “Gartenland in Kinderhand” run by the Baden-Württemberg Stiftung Foundation and provides tips on setting up and maintaining fruit and vegetable gardens in nursery schools. The book wants to inspire people to hand gardening land over to children so that our children can experience the wonders of nature once again.
