Edward Espe Brown on Zen Cooking

Zen cooking means:

  • cooking as a personal spiritual act

  • personally selecting foods

  • recycling leftovers and waste

  • respect for and hospitality toward guests

  • an absolutely clean kitchen

  • use of the freshest seasonal ingredients

  • the ability to cook anywhere in the world with whatever is on hand

  • being equally capable of cooking frugally and extravagantly

  • using food to enhance health
