About

The Story:

Honeycake A Family of Spices introduces readers to a diverse, multi-cultural family that is full of love.

A grandmother explains why she calls her grandchildren “Honeycakes” while she teaches her granddaughter, Nala, how to bake a honey cake.

Through imagination, the grandmother details how each delicious ingredient represents a different family member and his or her unique ethnic background.

This charming book also includes a recipe and step-by-step instructions on how to bake your own delicious batch of honey cake with your Honeycakes!

 The Inspiration: 

Medea Kalantar, a Reiki Master and Practitioner, is the Author of a new children's book series called Honeycake.

Medea was inspired to write these books when she learnt that she was becoming a grandmother. Her stories are all based on her own family, whose members come from many ethnic backgrounds. This unique mix is a perfect recipe, and it's the reason that she calls her grandchildren her little Honeycakes.

Medea immigrated from Georgia U.S.S.R and came to Canada when she was 4 years old.  She lives in Ontario, Canada and has been married to her husband Esfandiar (who immigrated from Iran to Canada in 1987) for over 27 years. They have two beautiful children together: Shanaz and Jean-Diar. The family is growing as Shanaz and her fiancé, Brandon, are expecting their first child while Jean-Diar and his fiancée, Reilly, plan a wedding.


 With more lovely stories to tell, Honeycake will be followed by a series of books. Each one tells valuable life lessons and gives parents and children the tools to overcome obstacles in their everyday lives. These books will teach children how to do random acts of kindness, have honest and open communication, and practice gratitude. Children will even discover how to meditate and manage their emotions when things don't go their way. Medea writes her stories to help young readers count their blessings and to share positive messages.

A Teaser from the Book:

Nala’s grandma picks Nala up in her arms and gives her a soft kiss on the forehead. 

“That’s right, my Honeycake. We are a family of spices! Remember, Nala, even though we look different and come from different places, we are all part of one race. The human race. In this beautiful world we live in, we are all one,” says Nala’s grandma.
