‘How to Cook a Yogi: A Cookbook about Yoga’ by Bix Santana

This is simply a cookbook written by a yogi. A yogi with no formal training as a chef. And not one of those stretchy-bendy kind of yogis and all that that implies. This is a cookbook written by a another kind of yogi, a rajanaka—a little king—who received from his teacher the wisdom of a path known—believe it or not—as the kunchitapada sampradaya–the way of His graceful upturned foot. So this is a cookbook written by a yogi–a self-taught cook and baker–who likes to eat good food, who knows what that means and who considers food preparation a kind of yogic practice. Think of yoga and cooking as conversations among two discrete, distinct sets of conversants—yogis and cooks—both sets engaged in their separate dialogues, talking only among themselves about their practices. Now imagine a particular yogi and a particular cook, each a guru—a heavy—in own their rights, and imagine these two begin to talk to one another. That’s what How to Cook a Yogi does: It turns these two heavies toward each other, puts them in touch and engages them in dialogue, in a new conversation. This book is your invitation to join the conversation, to discover that cooking and yoga have a lot to say to one another and that our imagined gurus have been talking for a very long time.
