Word(s) of the Week: TEMPLE FOOD
I will allow the links and the chef herself to tell what moved me so deeply about this program. The most I can add is that my own sense of rightness about the world, a world in which peace, beauty, devotion, ceremony, sacredness, generosity, stillness, attention and love not only exist but are valued, perpetuated, feels greatly affirmed. If you, as I, have felt estranged from long-held truths, please permit yourself this accessible period of restoration. And the pure art of vegetarian meals, called simply temple food by the chef.
This will take you to a New York Times article about Jeong Kwan. Here is a recap of the series episode, available on Netflix.
To find the show, it is Episode 1 of Season 3 of CHEF'S TABLE, however you watch streaming programs.
