The next monthly community documentary screening in the Old Cobargo Butter Factory at 3.30pm on Sunday 14 January, will feature:

HOW TO COOK YOUR LIFE is a cheerful documentary about the art of cooking and the art of cooking your life without burning it, putting too much salt in, or over-cooking it.

Filmmaker Doris Dörrie and the cooking Zen priest Edward Espe Brown demonstrate that cooking is more than just the preparing of food. Cooking is a festival of senses, and an act of love and generosity.

Already in 1283 Zen Master Dogen wrote a cookbook in which he encourages his readers to discover Buddha in simple kitchen chores, like washing the rice or kneading dough.

Practical and entertaining, Edward Espe Brown knows how to translate the philosophical thoughts into today’s zeitgeist. What is the meaning of cooking and eating for the community and the individual? How does cooking reflect our attitude toward life and the world? To him, the whole world can be found in a watermelon. In his pots, rivers and mountains are cooked.
