Included with the recipes is a well-written personal tour of the Zen Buddhist Monastery including meditations. The book's title, 3Bowls, almost becomes alive when they explain how foods are traditionally served at the Monastery.
The authors' love and respect for food, as well as the spiritual life, is clear and contageous. I am overwhelmed by this book. I find myself repeatedly reading each page. Even the paper upon which the book is printed is joyous. The recipes work whether you are cooking for one or many. This is definately a great tool for those of us seeking ways to calm ourselves, remember our spirt, and nourish our bodies.
The recipe for Apricot-Sweet Potato Oatmeal is still worth the cover price, and you will NEVER bother to make a single batch. Double it every time.
Apparently, eating simply does not at all preclude eating well, since these simple, nutritionally dense recipes produce complex, delicious dishes.
Excellent for busy families, most recipes can easily be one-pot meals, frozen for later, and/or prepped for easy cooking.
For us, the anecdotal philosophy was an added bonus and helped us to eat mindfully as well. However, even if you completely ignore the margins, footnotes, and insets this book will be one covered in foodie fingerprints within a week!
