A Zen priest from Fairfax, California: the wise, clever and often surprisingly wrathful Edward Espe Brown. Author of the famous Tassajara cookbooks, philosopher, Zen teacher and master chef. Doris Dorrie met with Edward Brown and he told her about his life. She participated in his lectures, watched the master in the kitchen and in his cooking classes. Under Ed Brown's guidance, cooking is more than just providing food. Cooking, or better to know how to cook, is a matter of caring for yourself and others. Without romanticizing Ed Brown and his work, Doris Dorrie succeeds in capturing the magic moment where Brown's practical advice unlocks wisdom and deepness. A Zen monk shows us the sensuality of baking bread, the philosophy of radishes and the serenity of carrots. It is not just a culinary delight but also makes us a bit wiser.
