The Joy of Cooking with John Ota

June 23 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

With self-isolating due to COVID-19, it’s interesting how our energies have shifted so much towards food, almost like going back to the basics, something we can control.  There’s a focus specifically on comfort food and the foods that connect us to our roots and to each other. And, where do we cook and eat many meals is in the kitchen!

The Calgary Buddhist Temple is honored to have architectural writer/designer/historian John Ota presenting for us a glimpse of his journey through time – and the homes of Julia Child, Georgia O’Keeffe, Elvis Presley and many others in search of the perfect design. John shares some fascinating stories, beautiful photos, and highlights from his new book, The Kitchen.

This workshop is open to everyone!  Register by emailing calgarytemplesangha@gmail.com and the Zoom online meeting invite will be sent to you. You are also welcome to submit questions to this email address for John and if time permits, there will be a Q&A session at the end.
