Summary Fresh out of college, Greenwood found her way to a Buddhist monastery in Japan and was ordained as a Buddhist nun. At the monastery she discovered an affinity for working in the kitchen, especially the practice of creating delicious, satisfying meals using whatever was at hand. Based on the philosophy of oryoki, or "just enough," this book combines stories with recipes, showing food to be a direct, daily way to understand Zen practice. -- adapted from back cover
