The Tao of Chow

Edwin Lord Weeks, An Open Air Kitchen, Lahore, India (ca. 1880)

“From food are born all creatures, which live upon food and after death return to food. Food is the chief of all things. It is therefore said to be medicine for all diseases of the body. Those who worship food as Brahman gain all material objects. From food are born all beings which, being born, grow by food, and, when they die, food feeds upon them.” –From Taittiriya Upanishad (ca. 5th century BC)
