New Book Apri 2019 - The Most Important Point: Zen Teachings of Edward Espe Brown and here's a review in New Spirit Journal

10-09-18 - Edward Brown's No Recipe: Cooking as a Spiritual Practice - that's Edward - wingin it this way and that like a bird with a chef's hat.

“[An] illuminating guide. Brown presents cooking as a refreshing celebration of the mundane—an act he feels is at the heart of understanding the sacred and a valuable means of enlarging one’s spirituality…[NO RECIPE’s] down-to-earth wisdom, generous spirit, and exuberant encouragement simply to cook will appeal to all readers who enjoy cooking.”
