Buddhist Cuisine Workshop in English / Tajimi

Would you like to learn how to make Buddhist Cuisine (Shojin Ryori) from a real monk?

Shojin ryori is the traditional dining style of Buddhist monks in Japan, and grew widespread in popularity with the spread of Zen Buddhism in the 13th century. As the cuisine is made without meat, fish or other animal products, it can be enjoyed by vegans, vegetarians and meat-eaters alike.

The head monk 住職 (juushoku) of Tokurinin temple in Tajimi will teach us some basic Buddhist cuisine (Shojin Ryori). English assistance is also provided.
