Doris Dorrie - How To Cook Your Life (2008)
Type Food / Drink / Cooking
Dorris Dorries jazz inflected documentary should come with a disclaimer: Dont watch on an empty stomach. While it doesnt cover the basics of food preparation, How to Cook Your Life offers a delectable introduction to Buddhist living. Yes, subject Edward Brown is both pastry chef and Zen priest, but Dorries approach is more holistic than instructional. (For culinary specifics, viewers can always pick up Browns bestselling how to guide, The Tassajara Bread Book.)
In other words, home cooking as opposed to fast food and pre packaged goods isnt just healthier and better for the environment; it connects the creator to the product of their efforts. And it helps if they know more about the tools of their trade. Hence, the director of 2000s Enlightenment Guaranteed and a Buddhist practitioner herself, also interviews organic gardeners, cookware salespeople, and the like. Throughout, Brown shows students in the US and Austria how to prepare vegetarian pizza, fruit tarts, and other wholesome delights. All the while, he talks about the connection between the body and the spirit. Fortunately, Brown isnt some kind of holier than though type. Little things, like hard to open packages, can set him off, but hes just as quick to laugh. To him, cooking is a way to nourish yourself and others. As he likes to say, When you wash the rice, wash the rice. (True, he sounds like Yoda at times; its actually quite charming.) Like Super Size Me, How to Cook Your Life is an elegy for those long lost days of leisurely dinners with loved ones.
