Chef’s new book aims to inspire I Chef Dez

Oct 11, 2017
Courtesy of: Chef Dez Chef Dez has published an inspirational book titled “Parsley is World Peace in Disguise.” It’s not so much a cookbook as it is a guide for enriching your life through cooking.

Is parsley really world peace in disguise? Yes, and that is why I’ve titled by new motivational book “Parsley is World Peace in Disguise.”

But it’s not just parsley; it’s food in general. Food is something that not only do all of us have in common, but it also affects our senses and well-being on so many levels. No matter what race, religion or financial status we may be, we all begin, end and continue through our days with nourishment. It connects us all, if we let it, and at the same time enriches our lives.

This is not a cookbook. This book is for both skilled cooks and those who struggle with a can opener, and everyone in between. It is for anyone who loves being in the kitchen and for those who detest it, but most importantly it is for everyone who wants to enrich their lives and relationships with an everyday means: food.

Your life is not meant to be a white knuckled pilgrimage of chaos; it should be a representation of mastery and triumph. Life is meant to embrace others, to love one another, and at the same time to love ourselves. This book will show you the way there using your existing kitchen as the pathway, your innate need to consume nourishment as the vehicle, and your mind – and food– as the fuel.
