Shanaka Fernando is often hailed as a modern-day revolutionary. As the founder of the Lentil As Anything community restaurants in Melbourne that feed thousands every week, he advocates a unique business and life perspective. Entrancingly honest and refreshingly candid, Shanaka’s memoir hints at the roots of his early social awakening with tales of a 1970s childhood in Sri Lanka. From his upbringing within an eccentric extended family living in a residential compound populated with a throng of memorable characters, we accompany Shanaka on his travels from Australia to Asia to South America and back as he explores new ways of living his life. Shanaka’s example of what can be achieved based on an inclusive ‘people-first’ philosophy will inspire, challenge and provoke insights and questions that are undeniably worthy of attention. "Fernando is one of those rare pioneers who are prepared to live by their convictions, flaunt social convention and challenge the status quo. The story of his lifelong quest for meaning - and the 'experiment in generosity' that became Lentil as Anything - is inspiring and challenging in equal measure. Few autobiographies are likely to evoke the senses and soul quite as much as Fernando's tale of global travel, self-exploration and cultural innovation" - Dr Wayne Visser, Director of Kaleidoscope Futures and author of "The Quest for Sustainable Business" and "The Age of Responsibility"

Recipes and Stories from the Landmark Restaurant in New York's East Village
Author: Tom Birchard,Natalie Danford
For more than fifty years, customers have crowded into Veselka, a cozy Ukrainian coffee shop in New York City's East Village, to enjoy pierogi, borscht, goulash, and many other unpretentious favorites. Veselka (rainbow in Ukrainian) has grown from a simple newsstand serving soup and sandwiches into a twenty-four-hour gathering place, without ever leaving its original location on the corner of East Ninth Street and Second Avenue. Veselka is, quite simply, an institution. The Veselka Cookbook contains more than 150 recipes, covering everything from Ukrainian classics (potato pierogi, five kinds of borscht, grilled kielbasa, and poppy seed cake) to dozens of different sandwiches, to breakfast fare (including Veselka's renowned pancakes), to the many elements of a traditional Ukrainian Christmas Eve feast. Veselka owner Tom Birchard shares stories about Veselka's celebrity customers, the local artists who have adopted it as a second home, and the restaurant's other lesser-known, but no less important, longtime fans, and he offers a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to serve five thousand gallons of borscht a year and to craft three thousand pierogi daily---all by hand. The Veselka Cookbook will delight anyone with an interest in Ukrainian culture, New York City's vibrant downtown, and the pleasures of simple, good food.

Presenting 58 Tastiest Ways to Cook Lentils as Soups, Curries, Snacks, Full Meals and hold your breath, Desserts! As only Indians can. From the author of # 1 Amazon Best seller “Home Style Indian Cooking In A Jiffy” **BONUS Link inside: For a Limited Time Only: The Ultimate Guide to Cooking Rice the Indian Way Available at NO COST if you purchase this book** This is simply the ultimate vegetarian protein cookbook. We all know that as the cheapest and most versatile sources of protein available to mankind, lentils have been cultivated and consumed from the time immemorial. Lentils are mentioned in religious books such as the Bible, Quran and the Vedas. Lentils were so important for those long sea voyages that the Romans named their emperors after the most common legumes: Lentulus (lentil), Fabius (fava), Piso (pea), and Cicero (chickpea). And yet, lentils came to be almost forgotten in the modern post-20th century world with easy availability of red meat and the rise of fast food joints. Now thanks to scientists and expert bodies like the Mayo Clinic, we know that lentils are actually better than meat. Lentils are actually the “Healthiest Food” in the World. * Lentils are good for a Healthy Heart: Lentils contain significant amount of folate and magnesium, both doing wonders for your heart. * Lentils replenish Iron Needed for Energy: Lentils are rich in Iron, which is a vital component of energy production and metabolism in the body. * Lentils are low in cholesterol: Lentils, unlike red meat, are low in fat, calories and cholesterol. They are also somewhat lower in oxalic acid and similar chemicals which cause stone formation in kidneys and result in gout, a painful affliction of joints caused by the deposition of crystals. * Lentils are rich in fibre: If you are looking for ways to reduce constipation, try Lentils as they contain a high amount of dietary fibre, both soluble and insoluble. ˃˃˃ The way Indians cook lentils is unmatched by any other cuisine on Planet Earth. No one can cook lentils the way Indians do. This is because almost every Indian meal has to have a lentil dish, as dal (soup), curry, snack or dessert. So they have centuries of expertise in turning lentils in whichever way you want. On the other hand, most western cook books would, at the most, recommend baking lentils with cheese, putting them in hamburgers, having them with sausages and casseroles or making lentils stew. One is, of course, not counting the lentils sprouts salad or the famous students’ dorm dish of baked beans (straight from the can) as well as the West Asian “sauce” hummus, without which no Lebanese meal can be termed complete. There is nothing wrong if you want to have your lentils this way. ˃˃˃ But if you want to experiment, and wish to embark upon a roller coaster culinary adventure, you must look at Indian cuisine. “The Ultimate Guide to Cooking Lentils the Indian Way” lets you savour, in this background, as many as twenty most popular “Home Style” dal recipes; ten curries; six lentil dishes cooked with rice; eleven snacks; three kebabs; three lentil stuffed parathas; and five desserts. ˃˃˃ It is said that without carrying Sattu or roasted chickpea flour with them, for sustenance on those long and arduous treks, Buddhist monks from Bihar could NOT have spread Buddhism to far off places from Afghanistan and Tibet to Korea!
