Recipes, Stories and Explorations to Feed the Whole Self
Lavinia Plonka offers a delightful smorgasbord of opportunities for culinary delight, going beyond standard cookbook fare to provide a feast that transcends the five senses. Your sense of taste will be tempted by the delicious recipes. In order to take the stress out of cooking, each recipe contains a Playing With Your Food section. This provides substitution tips, how to avoid kitchen disasters, ways to rescue mistakes and much more. For your sense of humor, Plonka has included stories; both traditional folk tales as well as humorous essays that explore subjects like cooking with a significant other, fear of an empty refrigerator, and the universe as a cosmic soup. But what makes Playing in the Kitchen completely unique are the movement explorations designed to make everything from chopping to washing the dishes a pleasurable and ergonomic adventure. Lavinia Plonka is an expert teacher of the Feldenkrais Method®, and has created innovative sequences based on Feldenkrais’ teaching that awaken your kinesthetic sense. You’ll never cook the same way again!
