„I love this book. It‘s not just that Michio has participated in it. It’s also because a woman who has real experience in day-to-day macrobiotic cooking and has raised a child as well as taught macrobiotics to large numbers of people wrote it. The book very clearly addresses what macrobiotics is and how to bring these ideas to everyday life.“
Mayumi Niimi, Madonna‘s private macrobiotic chef; author of Mayumi’s Kitchen: Macrobiotic Cooking for Body and Soul.
