Secret Buddhist Reveal and Book Giveaway: Bryant Terry (VIDEO)
Brilliant and historically grounded Afro-Diasporic recipes — like Sweet Coconut Ginger Creamed Corn, Jamaican Veggie Patties, and Collard Confetti — are reason enough to appreciate the work of eco-chef and cookbook author Bryant Terry. And there’s also his fabulous food justice activism, including a web series that highlights urban farms in communities that need them most. But did you know that Terry also draws inspiration from the Venerable Thích Nhất Hạnh and engaged Buddhism?
Listen as Bryant shares with Turning Wheel Media: how he found Buddhism; lessons from unsuccessful ethical proselytizing; and practicing mindfulness in the kitchen and gratitude at the table.
Then, enter to win a copy of Bryant’s latest cookbook, The Inspired Vegan! (Directions for entry below. Many thanks to Maia Duerr for showing us how a book giveaway done on her Liberated Life Project blog!)
A great big thanks goes out to Ecaterina Burton, Laurel Maha, and especially Matt Ducot for making this video for Turning Wheel.
