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.
