In 2011, after the earthquake and tsunami in Japan, I was honored to contribute a recipe to a cookbook sold to raise money for disaster relief in Japan. While I posted about the book here, I did not post the recipe. Now, the book is no longer available and it’s time to share the recipe. The […]

March 26, 2009

I’ve been meaning to do a non-meat dish for a while lest you all think I’m a complete carnivore. While I do like my proteins, I’m happy to take them in any form. Still waiting to try the fried bugs next time we’re in Bangkok, but that’s a whole ‘nother story! This dish is not […]
