    Media personality, two-time Food Network champion, and acclaimed Indian vegan chef Palak Patel invites you to explore the powerful connection between how you feel and what you eat in this inspired collection of plant-based recipes. With recipes for every mood, Food Is Love shows you how to savor every bite and awaken your senses. 

    Have you ever experienced tears of joy after eating something? Or received a kiss from a chocolate dessert that left you breathless? Or tasted something so familiar that it brought you right back to childhood? Of course we cook and eat to satisfy a physical hunger, but eating is a highly emotional and connective experience.

    Food Network veteran and acclaimed chef Palak Patel invites us to take a journey through the emotional landscape of food with recipes that are designed to evoke specific feelings: from joy and comfort to nostalgia and love. Food Is Love is a reminder that food is more than just sustenance. It is also a way to connect with our loved ones, express love for ourselves and others, and celebrate life.

    Born in India and trained at the French Culinary Institute, Palak is inspired as a chef by her heritage and travels: she’s lived in the south of France, Italy, San Francisco, and New York City, and has visited over 60 countries. Food is Palak’s love language, and in this plant-based collection, she welcomes you to choose recipes based on how you feel so that you can truly relish the joy of the first bite, calming aroma of simmering stew, and the surprise of new flavors. Do you feel energized? Want to feel inspired? Perhaps you’re in need of comfort?
