Confident Cooking book

"When you walk into “Bliss” you can feel the love, not only from the people who work there, but also in the actual taste and look of the food. You can tell that they care about what you’re eating. Grace is a real inspiration to the BordererS too, not only by her personal growth in the last few years, but her passion to get great food out there. Our children are being stolen away from us via fast food marketing and computer games etc and we see “Bliss” and Grace as a beautiful oasis in the middle of it all. Long may her passion extend into the community until fantastic vegan / organic or raw food is seen as normal and not just on the fringe.”

Jim Paterson, The BordererS, International Multi-Award Winning Band

“There are things that you cannot describe, but you can feel them. I can tell you that the Bliss café is great, the food is great, people are friendly and so on, but you need to be there to experience it yourself – that positive energy that you receive from the café, food, personnel and customers. What’s their secret? I don’t know. You need to ask Grace Love.”

Nima Raoofi, Filmmaker & Animal Rights Activist

“Grace’s continuous and passionate contribution to Adelaide via authentic, healthy and delicious food and community events is admirable. This “cook-book” will change your life.”

Stephen Yarwood, Lord Mayor of Adelaide, Australia

“Grace’s passion for raw, vegan, healthy food is unstoppable. Coupled with her drive to share the secrets and make everyday healthy cooking accessible to everyone gives her a winning combination. Forget the old fashioned recipes, just get hold of quality ingredients and trust that you will learn things as you go along. Join her on the food journey!”

Dan Smith, Manager SA Young Entrepreneur Scheme

"Grace brings passion and inspiration to everything she does. This book is a reflection of her love and passion for food and the health of her community - it is not just a cookbook, it was written to inspire, empower and bring love to the lives of those who explore its dishes and share them with the people in their lives."

Kim McCaul, Author of Multidimensional Evolution: Personal Explorations of Consciousness

“It gives me great pleasure to welcome Grace Love’s book. Grace is generously sharing some of her secrets, giving ingredients and instructions but no exact quantities to encourage us to experiment and adjust dishes to our own taste.”

Anne Sanders, Vegetarian and Vegan Society of SA, Australia

“When Grace first told me about her book, Confident Cooking: Blissful Guide to Cooking Without Recipes, I thought ‘What a fantastic idea!’ After all, isn’t that how most of us cook at home anyway? We look in the fridge and the pantry and consider, ‘What have I got? What can I cook for dinner?’ and then we make something up on the spur of the moment. But, often, we get stuck in the same old rut: pasta with tomato sauce, stir-fried veggies, or whatever our own particular easy favourites are. How wonderful, then, to have a resource of plant-based recipe ideas, based on Grace’s Polish heritage and tried and tested menus from Bliss Organic Café, which inspire and motivate, while at the same time encouraging us to follow our own intuition.

Grace’s practical experience as executive chef at Bliss, knowledge of the health-giving properties of foods and inspiring commitment to sharing love through food, combine in this book to give everyone the confidence to create incredible, life-giving meals for themselves, their family and friends.”

“I absolutely love Bliss. It's truly a home away from home for me. As a performer who's often on the road, I've been to vegetarian and vegan cafés all over the world. Bliss remains my all-time favourite for the quality and variety of the food and the welcoming, inclusive atmosphere that Grace creates. It's the perfect place to wind down and find peace and nourishment as I try to keep up with the frenetic pace of producing and performing shows in the Adelaide Fringe Festival.

Also, as a gluten-free vegan, I appreciate that I have so many delicious options on the Bliss menu! I've been trying to make my way through them all, but I often get stuck on my favourites because they're just so good: Bliss Wrap, Bliss Burger, or Raw Power Salad with Wake Me Up juice and a Bliss Ball for dessert.

I can't wait to try the recipes in the cookbook and have a taste of Bliss in my own home. Now, if only I had a garden space as beautiful as theirs!”

DeAnne Smith, International Stand-up Comedian, Long Time Vegan,

“I’ve been a Vegetarian for the past 17 years and this is the only book I’ve read that is so much more than a cookbook. It Empowers, Inspires & Educates you all at the same time. It’s amazing. A must read.”

Darren J Stephens International Bestselling Author “Millionaires & Billionaires Secrets Revealed”

"Wow, a recipe book that quite literally throws the measuring cups and spoons out the window but guides you with some solid METHOD.

This is exactly how good cooks become great, by understanding the feel and idea of a recipe and turning that into a meal. With a generous handful of encouraging guidance and tips from the author, you add a splash of your own intuition and experimentation; that sounds like a recipe for success to me.

Grace's book is much more than that though, it’s a collection of great dishes that are tried and tested in her everyday life as a vegan and raw foods guru through her work at the helm of Bliss Organic Café's kitchen. If you thought that vegan food / raw food was boring or too hard then chuck out your scales and get ready for a ride. Consider Grace and "...blissful cooking" your road map so you don't get lost, but it’s up to you how you get to the final destination."
