A quiet Saturday and she, feeling a little under the weather, picked this episode to watch on Netflix. Once again, I am grateful to be given this moment to catch another glimpse into the beautiful soul of this young woman. I was keeping her company, something I know she values much when comfort is needed.
If you know the series “Chef’s Table” on Netflix, this popular series is now in Season 6. Each episode focuses on a chef’s journey that has influenced our perception of food.
The episode (Season 3, Episode 1) I was invited to watch with her is on Jeong Kwan, a Seon Buddhist nun who cooks incredibly well. It is not just her craft, but more so her philosophy to growing and cooking food that is indeed inspirational.
This is a story not of cooking techniques, nor of “the road to fame” or “rag to riches” or overcoming adversity like some of the other episodes.
This is a story of gratitude and appreciation of life, in the practice of cooking. It is about the nourishment to be found in simplicity.
This is a short excerpt from the episode to whet your appetite.
Creativity and ego cannot go together. ~ Jeong Kwan
The episode resonated with me greatly, so I am sharing it with you. Watch this where you can find it – great insights to be had.
And its (the episode) selection certainly gave me insights into this young woman.
