Peppered with a delicate mix of wisdom and humour, QuantumSoup is a light-hearted yet informative combination of happyanecdotes and traditional Chinese sensibilities in a Western setting.Every mini-essay is accompanied by the author's calligraphy andillustrations, making this book every bit as appealing now as it waswhen originally published. Quantum Soup is a gourmetpreparation of philosophical snaps and snails, sharks' fins andpuppy dogs' tails to tickle the sophisticated palate and provokehappy, healthful belly laughs.
Quantum Soup is an elegant, wise and playful expression of Taoist and Zen Buddhist sensibilities in a Western setting - a philosophical entertainment with a collection of anecdotes, aphorisms and koan-like ruminations, all served up in appetizer portions.
Like sunlight, Chungliang Al Huang's delicate mix of wisdom and humor comes in discrete energy packets (quanta) but gives continuous pleasure and nourishment.
Confucius say: 'Number One good recipe!'
Take the humor of Buddha, connecting with the universal soul you have Chungliang Al Huang and Quantum Soup!
Take the pungence of hot and sour, the homeyness of chicken, the excitement of gespacho, the refreshment of vichyssoise - flamboyantly seasoned with loving humor and eternality and an empty bowl - ahhhh - Quantum Soup!
Chungliang Al Huang is the founder of the Living TaoFoundation and the director of the Lan Ting Institute, a cross-culturalstudy and conference centre at the sacred and historic Wu Yi mountainin China.
