I live in a little town of Quebec. I cannot find ingredients like : astragalus root, jimaca, kaffir lime leaves, marcona almonds, san marzano tomatos, seabuckthorn, spiracha, yuzu juice, yuzu kosho, etc. So the book is well made, well written, well illustrated, but to my despair, I cannot cook with it since i cannot find the ingredients. Going on line to buy the ingredients costs a fortune because the shipping is more than the article itself. So if Dr. Weil would be kind enough to give us a list of substitute we could use in his recipes, that would have help a lot. I do not know the replacements for these ingredients. So this book is for people who can buy the ingredients easily, like in big towns. Sorry, but my book is of no use to me.
