I wrote about the new movie How to Cook Your Life this week on Bay Area Bites. There are a lot of people in my life who I want to take to see this movie. Seeing it validated how strongly I feel about food and how cooking is such an integral part of my life. Many of you, I'm sure, can relate to this. Being in the kitchen and chopping, and tearing, and tasting and listening is what grounds me. It can be better than a massage or a therapy session or a great phone call with a good friend. How To Cook Your Life put this concept in the context of Zen practice, and entertained me along the way.
It's starting this weekend in San Francisco and then will be in a few additional cities later this month -- check the site for more details.
