Edward Espe Brown is the author of the Tassajara Bread Book, one of my favorites in the “Basics” kitchen literature category, right after my battered original copy of the Colorado Outward Bound School Cookbook. (Construction paper and cheap xeroxed pages…)
It’s very entertaining, and Brown has a great attitude about cooking and food. The book draws heavily on his experiences cooking at the Tassajara Zen Mountain Center, a gorgeous-looking place I’ve always wanted to visit.
Even though I knew this was coming out, I failed to catch it when it was in theaters, and only realized just as the DVD came out in May.
I need to get a movie night going… maybe something with a kitchen focus.
