Shojin Ryori is an dedicated cookery discipline used by the monks of
Buddhist Monestaries, it involves only vegetables. It excludes certain
vegetables because of the strength of their flavours and involves some
seemingly quirky ideas. (though Master Tanahashi actually has very
good reasons for these), he is known for talking to his vegetables and
