Zen way of cooking, as a Tenzo is 'cooking your life' and yourself.
I recomend it to learn how to cook healthy and relaxing our minds.
Nowadays we understand the importance of having seasonal food and this is what the Japanese have always followed when making menus. The recipes are grouped according to the four seasons.
Most of the ingredients are widely available but there are a few items that are difficult to find outside of Japan such as Rape Blossoms. Fresh Bamboo shoots may also be hard to find but during bamboo season markets in Japan and China overflow with the succulent shoots and there are so many ways to serve them. However you can usually find them in your local Japanese market in a plastic sealed package.
With this book, anyone could become a good cook of Japanese vegetarian Zen Temple food.
I have a copy of Good Food From A Japanese Temple in two locations that I cook in. Its one of my most-used cookbooks and I'm not even a vegetarian (but I love veggie meals!)
