In The Shaman Chef: My Life and My Recipes, Renee Baribeau tells how she overcame neglect, abuse, addiction, and chronic depression by creating life-sustaining rituals based on her own intuition and teachings from various spiritual traditions. Renees natural gift for cooking saved her from an early death with drugs and alcohol, but when it deserted her she had to discover a new menu for survival. This memoir, a bountiful mélange of memories sandwiched between mouthwatering recipes and uplifting rituals, will make you laugh, cry, and look at how your own life stories nourish or hinder your healing.
