Seasonal Special Happenings

Zen and the Art of Cooking

When: Fri., April 8 2011

Not to get all Zen on you, but Edward Espe Brown will be in town this weekend, sharing his take on the connection between cooking and spirituality. A chef and Zen priest, Brown is the author of the 1970 vegetarian mainstay The Tassajara Bread Book, an international best-seller that has been in continuous publication for 31 years. He later went on to help found Greens Restaurant in San Francisco, an eatery that has been credited with bringing meat-free cooking out of the culinary closet and into the ranks of true cuisine. This evening Brown will be sharing his thoughts on the mind-body-kitchen connection at the West Shore Unitarian Universalist Church in a public lecture titled How to Cook Your Life. The talk runs from 7 to 9 p.m. and includes a book-signing and light refreshments; admission at the door is $20. (Brown's Saturday cooking workshop is sold out, by the way, but some seats remain for Sunday's meditation workshop at the Cleveland Buddhist Temple; see for more information.) Tonight's talk is at 20401 Hilliard Blvd. in Rocky River; call 216-521-4239 for details. — Cicora
