Mindful Cooking

Mindful Cooking


Francesca Rosso takes us to Japan, among the stoves of a Zen monastery, cooking, eating and practicing with monks and nuns. Participatory observation is mixed with meditative practice in Mindful Cooking. With a few tricks on seasonality, choosing zero-mile foods and cooking techniques we can prepare simple and tasty recipes to cook our lives better. By bringing attention to health, presence and ecology, everyday cooking is transformed into a mindfulness practice to cultivate greater harmony with ourselves, the environment and all beings.
