Move over “Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance”! Here comes Zen and the art of a good meal. This life-affirming film by Doris Dörrie features bestselling food author, cook, and charismatic Zen master Edward Espe Brown. His mixture of culinary arts and Buddhist philosophy work to nourish both body and soul and remind us that eating well is an essential part of living well.

Brown is the author of The Tassajara Bread Book and Tomato Blessings and Radish Teachings and co-author, with Deborah Madison, of The Greens Cookbook. How to Cook Your Life teaches us to be attentive in our daily lives with the most ordinary tasks and to open our eyes to one of the most beautiful professions in the world: cooking.

After the showing of the film, Edward Espe Brown will provide entertaining commentary on the making of the film and will take questions from Slow Food members and friends.

Screening time and ticket purchase information will be announced shortly. In the meantime, view the trailer on the How to Cook Your Life website, mark your calendar, and plan to join us for what promises to be a lively and inspirational evening.
