Korean Buddhist Cooking Online Course


Calling home cooks everywhere: engage with the guiding principles of Korean Buddhist cooking at the dinner table and in daily life by whipping up delicious vegetarian dishes.


Together with Tricycle Buddhist Magazine, we developed a 4-chapter online course to introduce you to the values and history of Korean temple cuisine. To round off each lesson, Zen teacher Bo-Mi offers a dharma talk, or “kitchen contemplation,” to deepen your connection to Buddhist teachings on clarity of mind, gratitude, interconnection, and nonattachment—and to help you develop a healthy relationship to food, cooking, and eating.
