In Buddha's Kitchen was an honest and profound look into the mind's phenomenon. I was left with a deep sense of humanity as I learned that my own questions are part of a larger communal experience. Kimberley Snow's book is a valuable resource for anyone interested in Buddhism, but her experience is also a reflection of everyone who searches their daily life for the good within. I recommend this book for anyone looking for that everyday Buddha. Kimberly if you're reading this, thank you.
This book was worth reading. I especially enjoyed the first part. However, there is definately a negative feeling throughout about the drudgery of cooking that got tiresome at spots. And the poetic references I could have done without. Otherwise it was a clever way to blend buddhist belief into the everyday. There were some very choice quotes about how we all feel that the past is a big looming gigantic piece of our life and the future is this looming huge obstacle to tackle and how the present is seen as just a crack in the fissure. (or something like that). When in reality the present is ALL that we have. It was worth reading just for that reference.
