|Brand New Edition of Classic ‘Higher Taste’ now in Print
There’s a new cookbook hot off the presses. It’s a brand new reprinted, updated edition of the classic ‘The Higher Taste – A Guide to Gourmet Vegetarian Cooking and a Karma-Free Diet’.
The original paperback edition, reprinted numerous times, sold close to 3 million copies (2,857,000 to be exact). This first re-printing is a run of almost a quarter of a million copies. I was asked to provide the recipes for this German-printed, beautifully produced book.
The new inexpensive pocket-sized paperback is made up of six sections:
1 Health and a Meatless Diet
2 The Hidden Cost of Meat
3 Factory Farming and Compassion
4 Karma and Reincarnation
5 Beyond Vegetarianism
This first sections deal with many topical subjects such as The Logic of Vegetarianism, The Hunger Problem, Environmental Damage, Global Warming, Vegetarianism and Religion, Is Killing Vegetables Wrong?, The Yoga of Eating and Spiritual Food.
