I’m a second generation hippie kid from northern California, currently living and working in Hokuriku region of western Japan. I enjoy hiking and photography. While living at home, I often lamented that weather in the Pacific Northwest was particularly unfriendly toward such outdoor hobbies, but that was before I experienced Hokuriku. When work has me stressed or the rain is pounding on my second story windows, I always find myself drawn to the kitchen. If I’m not cooking, I’m usually reading, thinking or dreaming about food – and of course, I do my fair share of eating as well.
This blog is my repository for food-related photos and stories, as well as recipes, box lunches and restaurant reviews. Expect weekly updates on Wednesdays – right around lunchtime.
