How understanding the impact of the Food Experience beyond just what is in the food you eat can help you transform your life.
Food—We all need it and we all want it. We want it delicious, and ideally not toxic.
But how the heck do we make sense of the choices paraded before us, when the so-called experts can’t agree and the guidelines change from day to day? Recommendations based on simple, sterile laboratory analysis of one nutrient, one effect, have no place in the pantheon of science…nor the pantry of any respectable chef.
Michael S. Fenster, MD, interventional cardiologist, and professional chef, separates fact from fiction and wheat from chaff. Invoking the power of the total Food Experience that every chef and food lover understands, he helps diners focus on what they’re eating in a powerful explosion of ceremony and substance. As the Food Shaman, Chef Dr. Mike combines modern knowledge from a variety of disciplines with the ancient ritual of the first chefs and healers: the shaman. The result is a quantum leap in understanding the power of the Food Experience, and why it must nurture our soul through delightful tastes and textures beyond basic nutrition.
"Food Genius, Food Innovator, Food Scientist, Food Shaman. Dr. Mike brings a whole new element (excuse the quantum pun) to how we perceive food, both at a mind and body level. An extraordinary read."
– Thomas Jreige, B.Sc, SSCP, DipPM, AAICD; Physicist
"Dr. Mike has stirred the cauldron, he has done the research and presents factual evidence to back up what indigenous healers inherently know. He is on the cutting edge of connecting the bridge between science and ancestral healing pathways. He has ingested the three drops of inspiration, digested the medicine, and has served up a mighty fine brew in the form of Food Shaman: The Art of Quantum Food."
– Andrew Steed, Celtic Shaman Practitioner, Educator, and Author
"Dr. Fenster knocks the ball out of the park once more with the book Food Shaman: The Art of Quantum Food. He unleashes his incredible mind and writing abilities to entertain and educate at the same time. He has a voracious appetite for knowledge that is shared with the reader in his unique, entertaining style! I really love this book!"
