KIRKUS REVIEW

Invoke the planets or invoke the nature dieties and the vegetables devas. Take your choice of worshipful ""attunement"" from Scotland's Findhorn community or astrological food harmonies pointed out by homegrown seer Dixon. Since Findhorn grows 40 lb. cabbages, The Findhorn Cookbook is geared to feeding lots of people--like 200. The old adage that 'too many cooks spoil the broth' no longer applies: instead the principle of ""synergy"" says that the whole will be greater than the sum of its parts. The recipes are run-of-the-mill (or worse), with measurements given for 10, 25, 50, or 100 servings. If ""oatmeal vegetable stew"" is your cup of meat, go to it. Dixon, who matches her ""astrological foods"" to the cook's psyche and each decan of the months, includes fish and meat and presents such spooky dishes as ""pear salmon paprikash"" for Cancerians; ""honey apricot snow"" for Virgos: and something called ""planetary vegetable egg bundles"" for second decan Sagittarians. And if your spouse leaves you, blame the quackpot dinners.
