“We’re honored our book was selected for this award,” said Sheir, a department chair at the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego. “It has been fun and rewarding to show how traditional Chinese medicine can be tasty as well as therapeutic.”

“Ancient Wisdom, Modern Kitchen” makes the Eastern tradition of healing with food accessible to Western palates with simple, step-by-step instructions for more than 150 healthful recipes from the East.

The book also provides an overview of traditional Chinese medicine, herbs, and food therapy; details on 100 healthy Asian ingredients including photos and lists of where they can be found; and a list of recipes grouped by health concerns such as fatigue, high cholesterol, weight control, and diabetes.

Recipes include such dishes as Five-Color Stir Fry with Scallops and Ginkgo, Soba Noodles with Miso-Sesame Sauce, and Soothing Shrimp with Asparagus and Goji Berries.

    A very practical cookbook. Recipes are simple, easy to follow and don't require lots of exotic ingredients.
