New Cookbook: The Cake the Buddha Ate by Daniel Jardim and Others
The Buddhist Retreat Centre (BRC) in Ixopo, KZN, has been renowned for its excellent, innovative vegetarian cuisine for thirty years. It published its first collection of recipes in 2005 under the title Quiet Food – a Recipe for Sanity – now in its sixth reprint. This book, The Cake the Buddha Ate: More Quiet Food, takes this culinary success story to another level. These are flavoursome and nutritious dishes created by an exceptionally talented chef, Daniel Jardim, himself a vegetarian, while he cooked at the Centre.
But there is more to the BRC than outstanding food. This book also gives one a glimpse of its magnificent setting and the range of captivating workshops and retreats conducted there.
