A while ago, Eric Ripert, the culinary world’s most famous Buddhist, took a trip to Bhutan to tour the Aman Resorts. While he was there, however, he took some time to perform karmic actions by volunteering to make dinner at a nearby monastery. Lately he’s been reminiscing about his better, non-self-absorbed version of Eat, Pray, Love via Twitter, and as a result, the world has some gorgeous photos of his travels through Bhutan. (Also: this video of a procession at a temple.) Enjoy!
