Synopses & Reviews
According to the fifteen-hundred-year-old tradition of Oriyoki, monks of a Zen monastery receive their meals in three bowls. Though adhering to the Zen way of simplicity, the food they eat is anything but boring. Now authors David Scott and Tom Pappas bring the succulent pleasures of a Zen monastery kitchen to Western readers, offering one-hundred-and-twenty delicious recipes -- forty three-bowl menus -- along with fascinating Zen stories and enlightening haiku. Three Bowl Cookbook is a delightful way to bring the healthy, delectable foods of an age-old way of life into modern kitchens.
