In Ambrosia (White Crosslet Publishing Co., Publication date: August 23, 2006), Marc Anthony Hatsis celebrates the pure, simple beauty of raw food. Pairing recipes with his own meditative, mandala-inspired drawings, Hatsis gives readers the first raw-food preparation and menu book to offer perfectly combined meals for ultimate digestive health. Including such dishes as blueberry pudding, pineapple soup, avocado savoury, and a variety of salads, Ambrosia promotes the healing benefits and increased energy level of a minimalist, highly conscious way of eating. Arranged seasonally and zodiacally, and including a foreword by renowned cardiologist Aleksey Yurenev, this is a book that presents food as nourishment for both body and soul.
At a time when food is more processed, manipulated, and potentially harmful than ever before, readers and consumers need to be guided toward better food choices. A dedicated and well informed raw foodist himself, Hatsis offers this guidance. As he explains in his introduction, “Avoiding wrong food choices is essential for well-being. When you embrace raw fruits and vegetables as your exclusive diet, radiant health will appear. A natural diet combined with right thought, speech, and action is the essential way in coming to know yourself.”
But Ambrosia is more than just a food preparation book. It is also an artist’s monograph, an artist’s vision, in which the drawings meld perfectly with the subject matter. Just as a raw-food diet creates a feeling of wholeness, Hatsis’s book is a satisfying whole. His mandalas are meticulously rendered sections of fruit—symmetrical and beautifully complete. Ambrosia is a book that will be as at home on the coffee table as it is in the kitchen.
