Germany 2007 • Directed by Doris Dörrie • Documentary • 93 minutes
“How To Cook Your Life” is a cheerful documentary about a Zen priest and cook-book author who uses Zen Buddhism and cooking to relate to everyday life. Cooking is a festival of senses, and an act of love and generosity. During the summer of 2006 Doris Dörrie and her crew filmed Edward Brown at his cooking classes at the Buddhist center Scheibbs in Austria and the two Californian Buddhist centers, the Tassajara Zen Mountain Center and the Zen Center in San Francisco. His recipes are simple, rich in taste and aroma, and a metaphor for living life with common sense and balance.
