The benefits and hidden pleasures of Buddhist menus - even when purely vegetarian - are an experience worth having. The colours and texture in Chinese and Japanese cooking are very distinct, and the cooking styles can vary from steaming and stir-frying to grilling and baking.
The sublime aromatics of Indian cuisine, the chromatic creativity of the Thai, the harmonious fusion of Sri Lankan and Indonesian cuisine and the rustic ruggedness of the basic Tibetan diet offer a dazzling range to choose from. From hot soups and crunchy salads to lamay, tempura, momos, and relished to accompany rice or noodles, myriad curries and desserts-the Buddhist culinary repertoire is rich and resplendent.
Even non-Buddhists can benefit from adopting and adapting the recipes from Buddhist Peace Recipes to suit their requirements. The purity of ingredients and simplicity of cooking styles make it very easy to open one's mind to the positive influences and essence of Buddhist food that can go a long way towards healing the body and mind. The only book of its kind!
