Sansui kai (third-Wednesday-meeting):
In the old days, Japanese people used to obtain all they needed from nature. Since the modern era, a lot of things have changed. However, old traditions still represent the same approach towards a sustainable organic way of living and eating in particular. Japanese cuisine is famous for its restoring qualities and nutritionally rich recipes. Despite being simply delicious, the idea behind Japanese culinary art is to restore the balance through connection to nature. Our inner feeling of equilibrium and harmony largely depends on what we eat: the food is prepared to open our senses, become aware of the natural environment, appreciate its transformative properties and seasonality. What can we learn from Japanese food culture? How can we create balance through our meals? What should we consider to transform our routine around food preparation to improve our health and wellbeing? Join us for this wonderful conversation bringing together culinary art with ancient Japanese philosophy.
