Florencia Clifford is a Zen cook. In this evocative and powerful book, she leads us into a deep and luminous understanding of the food she prepares, and of the world around us.
Through her cooking, her practice and her writing, she transforms her relationship to life itself.
The story moves seamlessly from Buddhist retreats in an isolated farmhouse in Wales, to the hills of Florencia’s childhood in Argentina, and back again. Along the way, she shares her recipes and her insights, describing her experiences in sensual detail: the subtle and magical shifts in herself, the seasons, and the people around her.

"Feeding Orchids to the Slugs is one of the most honest and moving accounts of an individual’s personal journey that we have had the pleasure of reading. This is a book that we would strongly recommend to anyone. It would also make a perfect gift, being a carefully crafted hardback with superb illustrations by Michaela Meadow."
Buddhist Book Reviews, December 2012
"I’ve read a few other reviews of 'Feeding Orchids to The Slugs' on the net to see how other people described it; “evocative” seems to be the word used the most, and I couldn’t think of a better one myself."

"A Zen cook’s life is transformed through cooking. Beautifully written, with flowing prose, this book will inspire anyone who cooks."
