Food bliss

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.

  1. I’ve never watched Chef’s Table before. Just watched this episode with my morning coffee and really enjoyed it. I loved the sense of calm, which is so rare in cooking shows.
