Spirituality & Cooking: How Food Nurtures Your Soul
Jun 4, 2021
Spirituality & Food. Did you know that a Sufi’s initiation starts in the kitchen?
Well, whenever my time allows, what I love watching most on T.V. are cookery programmes. If you see the eclectic collection of cookery books on my shelf, from Elizabeth David, Jane Grigson, Eating For Beauty, by David Wolfe, to Claudia Roden’s Arabesque, you’d be a fool to think that I am an avid cook! But when my friend saw the newly released book, Sufi Cuisine by Nevin Halici, at the local public library, he knew that I would love it.
As I go through my recipe collection, and I am keen collector, I must confess that I never seem to stick to any, and I certainly never remember a favourite one. Why do I do it? Simply because it inspired me!
