Temple Food

Beautiful progam about a Korean Nun and how she cooks... and so much more: Netflix, Chef's Table, Series 3 Episode 1 Why not try and create a beautiful meal simply from fresh colourful vegetables and rice or noodles?

There is no reason why our food preparation and meal times can't be times of joy and peace, we can bring some of the calm from this Korean Temple right into our own kitchens and tables. When we prepare food and eat in this way we will digest and absorb our food better and feel the benefit.

Vic spent his time listening to the sound environment of the hospital and making subtle recordings of heard and unheard sounds and noise, voices and interacting with patients and staff on the wards about how sound affects the patient and the staff experiences - including in the heightened environment of the intensive care unit.

#treestory9 is dedicated to Astronaut John Young ( 24 September 1930 - 05 January 2018) who in 1972 became the ninth man to walk on the moon. Down here in Manchester** Professor Bernard Lovell + his team were eavesdropping with intent when back in July 1969 his colleagues left the following message on the aforementioned planet: "Here men from the planet Earth first set foot upon the moon July 1969, A.D.
