Doris Dorrie, German filmmaker, documents a summer in the life of  Zen practitioner and cook Edward Espe Brown, as he teaches culinary classes in the Zen centers in Austria and California. Brown reveals the role food plays in our bodies and our spirits. Of particular interest is the time honored methods Brown uses in making bread. In addition to being informative, the film is humorous and thought provocative with Zen wisdom. The kitchen skills Brown demonstrates will bring delight to even the most advanced foodie. Below is a link to one of Brown's popular cook books. Enjoy!

Gourmet Dinner Gifts For Life's Occasions

Without occasions, life would be pretty boring. Would you not agree? Occasions give us something to look forward to, plan for and most importantly, celebrate. Problem is after many years of gift gifting, selecting gifts for these special occasions becomes more difficult. Did you ever ask the question “What can I give to make a lasting impressing and break the routine”? The answer is “experiential gifts.” Experiential means what it says. There are no gadgets or trinkets to gather dust. But there is a lovely experience that gift givers can turn into a memory and cherish forever. GourmetStation food gifts are definitely experiential gifts. When you’re looking to make an impression, break the mould, step out of the box – remember GourmetStation Dinner Gifts.
