Introducing The Cooklets!

A Series of 12 Small Cook Books
Written and self-published by Melanie Waxman

Looking for a way to get started on the road to a happy, healthy and natural lifestyle. The Cooklets are considered to be the most practical and easy to use books on the subject of Macrobiotic cooking. Each book is laid out in menu format to show you how to prepare a full meal. They are also packed with great information that includes the benefits of different foods, food preparation, menu planning, setting up your kitchen and more.

The recipes are fresh, simple and stylish. The flavors are clear and distinct and the textures crisp and satisfying. You will learn how to make food that sings on the palate and brightens the senses. The dishes and recipes are my families favorites, ones that we enjoy everyday.

The Cooklets are the kind of books that can be left open on your counter and get covered with bits of corn or rice syrup. They add a comfortable aspect to the kitchen. They are spiral bound so that they open easily and can lay flat. The recipes are bold and simple to use, there are no frills or fancy photos and I designed them specifically to be of value to you the cook.
