Cooking Traditional Buddhist Cuisine

Veganism is becoming an ever more popular choice of diet, but this can cause difficulties for those clients travelling to countries where it is still relatively unheard of. In Japan, however, traditional Buddhist principles rule against consuming animals or animal products and as such, Buddhist cuisine, known in Japanese as “shojin-ryori”, is purely vegan.

We are delighted to be able to share a new product with you which will allow your clients to experience a cooking lesson in Tokyo adhering to these principles. They will learn how to make shojin-ryori under the guidance of a real Buddhist monk. This is a unique experience that offers a glimpse into Japanese spiritual life as well as being a sustainable, unique foodie experience for vegans.
