This Week's Film: How to Cook Your Life
Cuisine: Japanese

Ever since I first spotted this film in the NetFlix catalog, I’ve been keen to see it. It’s been in my queue for months, waiting for just this occasion, and I was even able to conveniently view it online. Here is the NetFlix synopsis:

“German filmmaker Doris Dörrie documents a summer in the life of renowned Zen practitioner and cook Edward Espe Brown as he teaches culinary classes in Zen centers in Austria and California, revealing the role food plays in our bodies and spirits. Informative, provocative and funny, Brown serves up a unique combination of inspiring wisdom and kitchen skills that will raise even the most demanding foodie to new spiritual and gastronomic heights.”

Join me throughout the week on Chopstick Cinema for a closer look at the food and the film. My film review will be posted at the end of the week, along with my Japanese recipe.
