His Holiness the Dalai Lama, who once told Beastie Boy (and Buddhist) Adam Yauch he had a soft spot for the caramel-filled, corner grocery standby Rolos candy, was the most recent guest judge on MasterChef Australia (the show is huge Down Under). Perhaps unsurprisingly, the Tibetan leader was not very critical of any contestant's food. When one contestant, the Huffington Post reports, "presented him with a dish she'd botch [sic] in the kitchen, tears in her eyes, he took her hand and bowed to her as a mark of forgiveness and grace." The whole thing is actually very moving. Now that he's a confirmed foodie, perhaps His Holiness will be the next celeb to swing an appearance on the cover of Bon Appétit?
