TASSAJARA DINNERS & DESSERTS

Those who visit The Tassajara Zen Mountain Center are taught that every aspect of one's day can be lived with mindfulness-even food preparations and choices of what we eat.

Take a look behind the doors of this great monastic kitchen to see that preparing food can be a spiritual practice. You'll learn to make mouthwatering vegan and vegetarian recipes such as Roasted Fingerling Potatoes and Corn, Frittata with Caramelized Onions, Coconut Curry with Mixed Vegetables, Ginger Mashed Yams, Sweet Tapioca Soup with Honeydew, and Ricotta Chevre with Ginger Berry Compote.

In Tassajara Dinners & Desserts, you will not only find recipes filled with the flavor of Zen practice, but also stories from past guest cooks such as Deborah Madison, Ed Brown, Annie Somerville, and many others whose hearts and peaceful minds were truly tested in the heat of the Tassajara kitchen.

Dale and Melissa Kent lived and practiced at the Tassajara Zen Mountain Center for seven years. They now work as caretakers in the foothills of the eastern Sierras, where they garden, cook, and promote sustainable living and organic food for all. They currently make their home on the eastern slope of the Sierras.

By Diane Curran on September 22, 2009
Format: Hardcover
This cookbook is a real gem. The recipes are quite unusual but they are also simple and very clearly presented. I have tried quite a few and they have been uniformly delicious. As someone on a restricted diet which can get quite boring, I have been particularly pleased to find so many interesting wheat and dairy-free recipes.

Wonderful as the recipes are, the photos and stories throughout the book are what make it a real treasure. The photos are instructive, enticing and artful. And the stories from cook-apprentices at the Zen Mountain Center are touching and funny. The book is so lovingly and artistically put together that it is a pleasure to flip through, and it makes a great gift.

This is a beautiful, readable and "doable" cookbook. The text and directions are clear, perfectly sequential and even include potential pitfals. Cooking vegetarian has become both peaceful and tasty!

This cookbook is not only beautiful, but also totally functional. The recipes are well-written, simple, and the directions are easy to follow.
The stories included also convey a wonderful aspect of the 'Tassajara Spirit'...
I would recommend this book for anyone wanting to add some wonderful vegetarian recipes to their repertoire - either for day-to-day use, or to impress at a dinner party.

I am a single Vegan and this book is a bit difficult to break down to servings for one..
However, get it...some of the best dishes ever...I make these to share with all my friends.. some non Vegan and for parties.
Simple to follow, many steps but worth the time for these incredible dishes
A must for anyones cook book collection...
