Sassy Food is a serious empowerment look disguised as a fun, upbeat photo book that is designed to show you how to harvest peace from growing food and how to create music out of food without using measurements. Create your own edible jungle anywhere in the world on any budget!
“The author, Ja-ne de Abreu’s enthusiasm for learning to grow her own food was inspiring and infectious. I found myself wanting to immediately dash out and buy some seeds to get going.
“The book is full of information on how to grow crops, in small spaces, whether indoors or out., and lots of helpful gardening tips.. she describes her journey from being an ignorant beginner, who through trials and. tribulation, not only succeeds in growing her own food but finds that doing so is a wonderful antidote to the stresses of living under our present pandemic. She was also able to inspire several people to join her in creating their own ‘farm’ as she calls her crops.
“But the book is so much more. It is funny, sassy and original. The photography is superb and the many photos of greenery and beautiful landscapes are calming and peaceful. But best of all are the ladies of uncertain age, whom the author calls ‘Eves’ who appear in many photos, peering out from behind trees or bushes, which successfully and modestly cover their nymph-like nudity.
“Sassy Food is an original. Quite unlike any other book I have read, it is very entertaining but at the same time it is helpful to someone starting out at growing their own food. It really cheered me up. I loved it!” —Dr. Yvonne Bickerton
