Ripert and Chang on Buddhism

ripertchang.jpg Last Friday, celebrated chefs David Chang (Momofuku) and Eric Ripert (Le Bernardin) spoke on a panel about "Buddhist cuisine" at Luckyrice's Restaurant Week in NYC. Chang admitted that he's "in the process of becoming more enlightened," while Ripert said that "he truly believes there is a middle way and that he actively practices compassion in both the meals he serves and the staff members who work for him, providing them pension plans and access to 401(k)s."
