On Saturday, Aug. 31, Dahan will participate in a special cooking demo at the Watauga Farmers’ Market at Horn in the West Drive in Boone to showcase her crafted recipes and talk to guests about her new cookbook.
This beautiful book is brimming with more than 150 easy, delicious and healthy recipes. For seasoned cooks, or those who rarely turn on the oven, this book demonstrates how easy it is to make a fresh start and enjoy better health and wellbeing. There are fresh new ideas for breakfast, lunch, dinner and everything in between. Jill Dahan combines natural ingredients with fun techniques for food everyone will love, according to Cindy Campbell of Lorimer Press.
Jill Dahan is passionate about preparing, eating, and sharing foods are nourishing to the body and the soul. She sees food as the best investment in our overall health and firmly believes the time is now to make changes and get cooking.
After two of her sons experienced serious health issues, including a rare form of can- cer, she found she could no longer rely on standby ingredients while cooking. In her quest to help her sons regain their health she began using products she never knew existed, or using them in unexpected ways. The result is a collection of delicious dishes that deliver exceptional nutritious benefits. As she began to develop these new recipes, she realized the transformative power of food and set out to share this newfound knowledge so that oth- ers might enjoy the same life enhancing benefits. In Starting Fresh!, she has combined every- thing she’s learned about foods, flavors, and nutrition to create mouthwatering dishes that nourish the body and delight the taste buds, Campbell said.
Starting Fresh! is now available at fine bookstores, Earthfare supermarkets, Amazon, or at www.jilldahan.com.
