Synopsis

The Coconut Kitchen explores the rising star of the world’s superfood movement and one of nature’s most versatile foods. Author Meredith Baird, one of the key authorities in the raw food movement for the last decade, touches upon the endless array of health benefits that the coconut offers—from health to wellness to beauty secrets that have long been eliminated from the western diet.

Meredith uses her culinary experience to craft simple recipes that are easy to execute without compromising flavor. Through 60 recipes complemented with stunning full-color photography, The Coconut Kitchen provides menus and recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert, around the coconut.

Coconut noodle pasta? Done. Ceviche? Of course. Skin and hair treatments with the tremendous health and wellness properties of the coconut? Meredith Baird has you covered. There is also a chapter on unique ways to use the coconut in its natural form, and a chapter on the wonders of fermentation. You will learn how to make coconut kefirs, yogurts, and cheeses! The coconut is truly one of nature’s greatest super foods. Let's go coconuts!


Reviews

". . . a must read for any person who appreciates health and wellness but doesn't want to compromise style and decadence. Meredith knows her subject through and through. Her compelling book will not only help you take control of your health, but will also inspire you to get creative in the kitchen.“
