“In Zen, we judge the quality of cooking by the state of mind it generates for those who partake.”
A lifetime of training goes into the formation of a tenzo (head cook). So when the tenzo for a Zen training temple decides to thank people, she cooks. This book A Feast of the Senses on a Midsummer’s Eve at a Zen Temple captures one evening of such gratitude.
Anyone who savors the memory of a special meal knows that every sense has been heightened. Using all the senses, moment by moment lies at the heart of good cooking and also at the heart of Zen training.
