SOAK YOUR NUTS: Karyn's Conscious Comfort Foods
Recipes for Everyday Life
Karyn Calabrese is Chicago’s premier vegan and raw restaurateur and champion for holistic living. Her youthful physique and boundless energy are testaments to the lifestyle habits she advocates. Her latest cookbook is divided into a unique back-to-back format. One side features popular cooked recipes from her restaurants Karyn’s Cooked and Karyn’s on Green, and the other side focuses on her favorite raw recipes from Karyn’s Fresh Corner and her home catering program.
“To call Karyn Calabrese’s food exceedingly healthy is beside the point. It is, but more importantly, everything she touches in the kitchen becomes magically delicious. It’s one of the reasons I live fifty feet from one of her restaurants. My wife and I are avid fans, not only of her restaurants but also of Karyn’s holistic approach to life. Just look at her—enough said, right? To distill good nutrition and high sensuality into your cuisine is the true definition of culinary artistry. Run—don’t wait—to buy this book. Three cheers, Karyn. You are the best.”
—Charlie Trotter, Author and chef-owner, Charlie Trotter’s
“How I wish I could sit at Karyn’s table every day to be nourished sufficiently. I know that eating this way is what provides and prolongs superior health and vitality, but beyond that is the fact that this food tastes so good. Now I can eat like this at home. Thanks Karyn.”
—Angela Bassett, Academy Award nominee and actor
