Ellen Kanner - Feeding the Hungry Ghost

Tuesday, April 9, 2013 - 6:00pm
Ellen Kanner serves up recipes that satisfy our  cravings "for more than just food" in Feeding the Hungry Ghost: Life, Faith, and What to Eat for Dinner - A Satisfying Diet for Unsatisfying Times ($15.95). Her DIY Matzo, When All Else Fails Pasta, and Caribbean Christmas Pepper Pot serve to satiate more than our appetites. In a voice as appealing as her recipes, Kanner seasons her text with warm, wise stories (helping kids plant a garden, hanging out at farmers markets, meeting Marcel, a Haitian who marks loss with soup) that show why “Often, the best way to exercise your faith and serve the world comes in choosing what you eat for dinner.”

Ellen Kanner is the Meatless Mondays blogger at Huffington Post and contributes to publications including Bon Appetit, Vegetarian Times, and Every Day With Rachael Ray. She is active in numerous food-based social projects, such as Slow Food Miami, and lives in Miami, FL.
