Publisher's Summary

A noted entrepreneur, food writer, and recipe developer serves up an evocative adventure story about her quest to find healing, meaning, and a place at the table.

Hunger comes to us in many forms, writes Lia Huber - we long to be satisfied not just physically but emotionally and spiritually as well. Nourished invites listeners on Huber's world-roaming search to find the necessary ingredients to nurture all three.

She begins her quest with an Anthony Bourdain moment in a Guatemalan village: She's slipping fresh vegetables into a communal pot of soup she's cooking up for chronically undernourished children. Village grannies look on disapprovingly...until the kids come back for more.

From there Huber takes listeners to the Greek island of Corfu, where she learns the joys of simple food and the power of unconditional love; to a Costa Rican jungle house (by way of an 8,000-mile road trip), where she finds hope and healing; and finally to California's wine country, where she steps into the person she was meant to be and discovers her calling to nourish others.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Tempting recipes sprinkled throughout give the reader the opportunity to to taste (and imagine) her most beloved, memorable meals, creating a delightful sense of intimacy with the author and her story." (Myra Goodman, cookbook author and cofounder of Earthbound Farm)
