Journeys : Jun Jul 2011
From our bookshelf Meditative cookery “ Your thoughts will go into the food you cook. Be kind and happy and your food will pass this on to your guest.” That’s the mantra of Ms V. Sandhya, and her philosophy flows through every recipe in her new book, Mysore Style Cooking. Among the many ‘secret yogic recipes of Mysore’ that she shares in this volume are tantalising instructions for making succulent raitas and chutneys; a var iety of healthy and aromatic palyas (vegetable dishes w ith coconut and spices); and hear ty sambars (spicy, lentil-based chowders). You’ll feel better in body and spirit just reading the book! Creative collaboration This intriguing and appealing book brings together the talents of ten Tasmanian writers and ten local craft ar tists. Each ar tist received one stor y (selected from almost 80 submissions) and was asked to respond to the theme with a piece of work in their individual style. I sleep in haysheds and corners is edited by Tasmanian designer Kelly Eijdenberg and writer and poet Ben Walter (read about his ‘Slice of the Island’ in this issue of Jour neys.) Both volumes are available from good bookstores. (If you buy I sleep in haysheds and corners from Fullers in Hobart, there’s a chance Ben might sell it to you – and sign it for you!)
