    Being a grazer means tasting lots of things but not committing to a single one. IPs the opposite of meal monogamy, the antithesis of boredom at the table. When you graze, you skip from dish to dish, bending the rules of convention. From shrimp with chile to unique takes on cheese and charcuterie to tiny creme brulee spoons, Lenzer gives us a guide on how to create dishes and snacks for grazing and entertaining, whether it be a dinner for two or a party for twelve. Tapping into the tapas style trend of eating, Graze is full of easy, delicious dishes, that, combined together, can make a unique meal. Cooking small bites is a way to try your hand at fun new recipes, including simple pear crisps, pizza slivers, grilled polenta cakes, scallop and plum ceviche, lavender panna cotta cups, and so much more. The book is written for home cooks eager for ideas and inspiration on how to integrate smaller dishes into their kitchen. The trend toward grazing is growing rapidly - more and more of us are interested in eating lighter meals focused on high quality, sustainable ingredients. The desire to be more conscious about consumption is integral to all of Lenzer's recipes.

    When Nicole Centeno created the first-ever commercial soup cleanse through her Brooklyn-based soupery, Splendid Spoon, she knew she was on the cusp a powerful new health trend. Souping detoxifies and cleanses the body with vitamins and nutrients to lose weight and feel amazing. Unlike the wildly popular juice cleanses that are loaded with sugar and skimp on fiber, a soup cleanse provides a nutrient-dense, fiber-dense alternative: slow-cooked, chewable soup. Juice is just a beverage, soup is a meal! Centeno's love of healthy eating and cooking began as a child, picking vegetables in her family's garden and foraging for wild berries with her mother. This passion led Centeno to study at The French Culinary institute and teach cooking and nutrition courses at Columbia University. In this book, this busy mother of two young boys shares her easy tips and popular recipes. Containing 75 delicious, plant-based soup recipes, The Soup Cleanse Cookbook features a customizable plan with five soup categories that can be mixed and matched to fit anyone's needs. Chaszar understands that diets fail and cleanses can be intimidating. Her helpful suggestions simplify cleansing, whether it's a once-a-week reset or a multi-day detox. The Soup Cleanse Cookbook makes mindful eating and living truly splendid.
