The Cookbook in Support of the United Nations: For People and Planet

We rated this book:


Truly nourishing food considers bodily health, sustainability of production, and overall planetary repercussions as well as flavor. Our eating choices have a significant impact on our planet and environment as well as ourselves; being more aware of what and how we eat matters to everyone.

The recipes included are mainly based on traditional dishes. Many have deep layers of flavor and are highly spiced, and may require a significant time investment, but don’t let that deter you. The Tangerine and Turmeric Brazilian Chicken Stew took an entire evening, but the result was deliciously warm and nurturing, full of flavor and healthful ingredients. Do be cautious about heat levels when cooking unfamiliar dishes! It was excellent served with the Vegan Rice Salad with Herbs. Many recipes are vegan, many more are vegetarian. The only issue I have is that making foods from across the globe requires that ingredients travel a long way to get to you, which countermands the need to eat locally. In those cases, take the recipes as suggestions, substituting what is locally available, and let them inspire you to new possibilities. The included contributor biographies show healing our global food ways is possible and achievable, even for everyday cooks.
