Editors Note "A fast-paced memoir revealing the private life of iconoclast J. Krishnamurti served up with humor and gourmet menus."
Editors Note 1 Rare inside look at the private life of one of the greatest philosophers of the 20th century. -- Companion book for the best-selling Harper Krishnamurti titles. -- Rare humor and joke telling by one of the most serious minds of the century. -- A gem of narrative and lunch-table conversations with famous personalities. -- Twelve never-before-seen photographs of Krishnamurti in his California home with friends and associates. A lively account of a modern quest for truth. Krohnen chronicles his life, work, and own spiritual path as chef de cuisine for revolutionary teacher, author, and writer J. Krishnamurti over a ten year period in California, where Krishnamurti lived from 1922 until his death in 1986. The reader is witness to Krishnamurti's daily life, meal-time conversations, and his often irreverent political and religious jokes and anecdotes. Delicious food abounds and the focus on cuisine engages all the senses as we share in the countless delicious and healthy meals served to Krishnamurti and his friends and guests. "It has been said that food is brahman (consciousness). The Kitchen Chronicles will give you insight into the nuances of mood as well as spirit in the consciousness of one of the greatest sages of our time". -- Deepak Chopra, M.D., Author The Path to Love and The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success
