Sattvic food documentary recommendation

Postby Mira » Fri Feb 17, 2017 4:39 pm

Just saw an episode of Chef's table that I thought I would recommend here. It's on Netflix, season 3, episode 1, Jeong Kwan. It's about a Buddhist nun who lives and cooks in a monastery in Korea and whose food is admired by master chefs in New York etc.. Her philosophy is all about making and eating sattvic food. Everything from letting the plants grow as they will in her garden, to preparing each item with bliss and happiness. Some of the Buddhist notions of enlightenment don't really jive with Vedanta. But overall it's a beautiful show to watch. Slow, moving, sattvic, contemplative and beautiful--just like her attitude to life and her food :D.

Highly recommended.
