Wookwan's Korean Temple Food

Buddhist nun and chef Wookwan breaks the boundaries of spiritual exercise and culinary practice in this first-of-its-kind meditative cookbook of Korean temple food.

As the first volume of temple cuisine published in English, Wookwan herself has written a beautiful volume that introduces the reader to Korean temple food, including what it means to care for the ingredients at each step of preparation, following the three key principles of cooking temple food, interspersed with her own accounts and tips among her meticulous collection of 41 recipes.Techniques such as fermentation and creating natural extracts and broths are included in this cookbook, as well as ways to substitute ingredients that are more readily found to recreate the very flavors of the Dorak Mountains right at home.
