Cooking With A Yogaview | Cookbook of the Week
Posted in Consume blog by Julia Kramer on Nov 15, 2012 at 3:00pm
At a time when everyone's talking about turkey, pie and Guy Fieri, thumbing through Claire Mark's Cooking With A Yogaview is a breath of fresh air. Cooking With A Yogaview is at once a cookbook and a lovely tribute to a place that clearly holds a very special place in Mark's heart, Yogaview (a popular and beloved yoga studio where Mark is a teacher). "I take great pleasure in sharing yoga and food with others," she writes in the introduction, "and I decided to create a cookbook that connected my love for both." The book is also a charitable project: Ten percent of the proceeds will go toward the Cooking Up Change cooking contest, which is part of the Healthy Schools Campaign.
Sort of like Martha Bayne's Soup & Bread cookbook, Cooking With A Yogaview is as much about community as it is about food, and the recipes come from a wide range of sources: Yogaview instructors, students, friends, a few local chefs (Tamiz Haiderali of Township, Jason Hammel and Lea Tshilds of Lula Cafe) and Mark herself. They're all over the board in terms of skill, ranging from instructions on how to simply sear scallops to more involved projects like Spicy Thai Coconut Soup. But overall, they're inviting recipes, things you'd want to make for a weeknight dinner (coconut-curried kale with soba noodles, grilled asparagus with caesar dressing, roasted carrot-and-ginger soup). Not surprisingly, there's a certain yoga-ness to the book: It has to do with the healthy-leaning food, the intertwining of photos of yoga postures with food photos, and a certain generosity of spirit—an eagerness to share these recipes and to celebrate the community they represent.
