The Zodiac Cooks: Recipes from the Celestial Kitchen of Life by Penny Thornton
The Zodiac Cooks is more than a cookery book. It brings the ancient world of astrology into the modern kitchen and gives you a whole new take on why you eat what you eat. In 130 recipes and a host of tips on cooking, table decor and health, internationally renowned astrologer, Penny Thornton takes you on a gastronomic journey through the twelve signs of the zodiac. Along the way, you'll discover why Aries spends a fortune on knives; why feeding the mind is more vital to Gemini than three square meals a day; and the role tradition plays in the Capricorn home. You'll understand why souffles collapse and which sign should never be given anything it can't pronounce the name of. Starting with Aries and ending with Pisces you'll find recipes tailor-made for each sun sign. Duck breast with prunes and chocolate? That's a dish to set before a Scorpio. Liquorice ice-cream? Perfect for anise-loving Geminians and Virgoans. You'll learn a few of their secrets, too: Why do Cancerians have a fondness for nursery foods? Why should Leo never leave out whole food groups? And is there a reason why dinner is never on time in a Pisces household? It's all to do with the stars."
