"Take one look at Asha Gomez's Instagram feed, and it's easy to want to disappear into her technicolor world filled with stunning floral arrangements and lush platters of food that you can almost smell through the screen. Her approach to life is vibrant and full, and this cookbook shows you how to bring that exuberance into your life via your kitchen. Nothing is boring or monochromatic, and she embraces spices in everything from a seafood-laden paella to a leg of lamb smothered in za'atar and crowned with stewed dried apricots. They say you should 'eat the rainbow'-Gomez will introduce you to colors you didn't even know existed."―Khushbu Shah, restaurant editor, Food & Wine
