I don't own this book but I stumbled across it while doing some research for a story on the spirituality of farming and eating. The quiet food concept seems to be an offshoot of the slow food movement with an emphasis on reverence and mindfulness towards the cooking process and food consumption.

Ultimately our enjoyment of things depends on the quality of the attention we give them. Cooking and eating are no exception. "Quiet Food" is about food that has been paid reverent attention".
