Beautiful photography combines with an engaging text in Lisa Dahl's first book. The founder of two award-winning restaurants in Sedona, Arizona, Dahl as a chef writes with joy about her various recipes. Whether you are looking for appetizers, soups, salads, salsa or side dishes, you will gain valuable recipes and zeal for cooking in the pages of this book.
Each of the photos is crisp and well-designed to illustrate the dish or Dahl's travel experiences in Italy and Sedona. I love what she write in the introduction, "To do what we love most for a living is the ultimate gift because each day it gives us a better understanding of the world and ourselves. For me, one of the elixirs of life is cooking." (Page 14)
That joy radiates throughout this book. Whether you keep it on your coffee table or in the kitchen for inspiration, you will enjoy THE ELIXIR OF LIFE. In addition, this title includes a 22-minute DVD which combines beautiful music with the stirring pictures from this book. If you love food and life, you need this book. I recommend it.
