Where Do You Keep the Key to Romance?

I Keep Mine in the Kitchen Cupboards.

Before You Start Romancing the Stove® 2.0 You Must Get Ready
Enter the romance! Experience the Touch of Class, the Taste of “Liquid Gold”
Build your very own foundation of Romance. It is clarified butter, called Ghee, the very essence of butter. It takes about 4 hours of slow cooking to purify 4 pounds of butter. Purify or clarify means to fully evaporate the water and to separate the milk solids from the butter. People call it Liquid Gold for its gorgeous golden colour. Besides the colour it has an exquisite flavor, a warm, inviting aroma and high medicinal values. It is an ideal medium for cooking; and it will add a wonderful flavor to your dishes. Ghee will not burn and smoke easily because all the impurities have been removed from it. According to the Himalayan Master’s Way, Ghee, in moderation, will not increase the cholesterol level in your blood; it will not clog your liver, but strengthen it. Ghee will feed your brain, nerve and reproductive systems; it will empower your digestive system; it will strengthen your body and mind. Ghee will help to increase your memory and intelligence and can add to your longevity. Ghee is perfect for the young and old. Try it, you will love it!

The Recipe for Ghee – ‘The Foundation of Romance’
Use 4 lb. of unsalted butter
Use a large heavy pot
1. Bring butter to boil
2. Lower heat and let it simmer for about 4 hours or until golden
3. Remove from stove and let it cool
4. Strain into a glass jar
5. Ghee does not need refrigeration
***Warning: Do not overcook Ghee. It will spoil the flavor and become dark.

Searching for a Magic Elixir of Eternal Life

As human beings, we seem to have a tendency for finding ways
to prolong life or postpone death. By searching for a fountain of youth or magic elixir we hope to reverse the effects of stress and bring more joy into our lives.

Mostly our results have been ineffective.
Why is that? Because we often ignore or fail to adequately deal with the total person. Unless we create and maintain a balance between the body, mind and spirit, stress will continue its unyielding destruction.

Now there is a simple yet profound approach to enhancing your well-being and reversing the effects of your stressful environment. And you don't have to search the world over to find the answer. Just go to the kitchen and, seriously, get romantic.

Romancing the Stove?

Yes! Romance begins in the Kitchen. It is simple. Only when your body is healthy you can begin to romance. I used to suffer from severe migraine headaches. Hospitalization was only a temporary relief for me.  Pain drove me to search for answers. I will never forget when I was introduced to this new way of eating. I felt elated. The first time in my life I enjoyed to eat and to cook the food.  Yes, these two simple acts of eating and cooking became my meditation, the basis for leading a healthy and happy life now.

From that time onwards, eating became both nourishing and pleasurable for me. I had discovered that cooking doesn't have to be boring.  It's not hard work.  It's easy and enjoyable.  It is the beginning of Self-Romance, a form of meditation, as well as a wonderful relief from stress.

Overjoyed with the knowledge and experience that I had gained, I decided to write “Romancing the Stove”. In May of 1997 "Romancing the Stove" book was published in Canada and sold worldwide.

I had learnt these authentic cooking secrets and the recipes directly from a great teacher Tulshi Sen, Author of "Ancient Secrets of Success for Today's World". I was just a scribe that had put this book together.

These secrets came from ancient times, when life was more joyful, and food was more natural.
I would love to present these recipes to you. Each dish is a part of the romance; and it is named appropriately for a specific mood or occasion. Get into the spirit of each name while you prepare the food.

Join me, follow my blog, and share your own recipes and experiences with others.

Romance Begins With Feeling Good!

“What is the secret of a long life?” The student asked his teacher Caraka, the Father of Ayurvedic Medicine. Caraka uttered 3 words…”Hitabhuk, Ritabhuk, Mitabhuk”. It means, eat what is good for you, eat what is in season, and eat little. That is the secret of long life. Romancing the Stove® 2.0 is focused around these 3 aspects of eating. Eat what is good for you, eat what is in season, and eat little.
