Mindful cooking is not detached or subdued, says Edward Espe Brown in “Let Your Passion Cook,” from our March 2010 “Mindful Living” issue. It’s cooking with your whole being engaged — mind, body, and emotions.
In this new Shambhala Sun Audio clip, the author of The Complete Tassajara Cookbook talks with Shambhala Sun Associate Editor Andrea Miller about the aesthetics of food, cooking “in the dark,” his relationship with Shunryu Suzuki Roshi, “insipid tomatoes,” and more.
