Introduction to the Zen Cuisine inspired by Temple Cuisine, that originated in Buddhist temples centuries ago. Buddhist cuisine is an East Asian cuisine that is followed by monks and believers from areas historically influenced by Chinese Buddhism. It is a plant-based cuisine based on the concept of ahimsa (non-violence). Temple Cuisine is known as pure vegetarian food, « lent / fasting food » in China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore and Taiwan; shojin ryori or « devotion cuisine » in Japan; « temple food » in Korea; « jay » in Thailand… Temple Cuisine in each of these countries is different and influenced by the local cuisine and ingredients. Alcohol consumption is prohibited. Tea consumption isn’t restricted. Most pungent smelling type of ingredients like onion, garlic, leek, shallot are restricted.
Our Zen cooking features Pure and Simple Plant-Based recipes inspired by the original Temple Cuisine.
