The Chinese Temple Kitchen by Jan-Peter Westermann

The Chinese Temple Kitchen from international food photographer Jan-Peter Westermann is a beautiful book, a food inspired travelog of Westermann's journey to Buddhist monasteries throughout China. The book came out this past May from German publisher AT Verlag and includes over 100 centuries of recipes, accompanied by delightful pictures of dishes and monasteries.
In the Buddhist tradition, the dishes Westermann cites are all vegetarian, and although they may look complex, the recipes all use easily-acquired ingredients and are simply prepared.
