  1. This book just won a number of IACP awards, including cook book of the year, so thanks for illuminating these recipes.
  2. I'm reading Rice, Noodle, Fish: Deep Travels Through Japanese Food Culture by Matt Goulding. It is published under Anthony Bourdain's imprint by Harper Wave. So far I am enjoying it. He meets and tells about some interesting people in out of the way places and there's some lovely images in the book.

  4. Comic Strips and Food

    He still does strips for the Guardian. Here's one from February, Whole Braised Veal Shank: http://www.theguardian.com/profile/len-deighton Here's an appreciation: http://www.theguardian.com/books/2014/dec/14/len-deighton-observer-cookstrips-michael-caine-1960s
  5. I'm getting emails advising me that an individual has posted a post in a topic requiring approval.
  6. This review does more than I can to explain why I tip: http://blogs.vancouversun.com/2015/10/29/i-review-pholicious-a-charming-vietnamese-cafe/
  7. I don't live in the US so I can't comment on wages.
  8. Like Deryn I usually tip and usually more than the "rules" suggest one should. My takeouts are at family restaurants in my neighbourhood. I see how long they work and how little they charge and it seems like a good thing to do.
  9. Food Podcasts

    BBC Food Programme, Burnt Toast, Gastropod, Spilled Milk sometimes, Radio Cherry Bombe sometimes
  10. November 24, 2003 for me. I don't post much but I still visit regularly and read extensively.
  11. Desserts from the 1960s?

    I'm 59. I remember Grasshopper Pie as very exotic. The association with booze especially.

  13. I saw the Koizumi in a store on the weekend - lovely. I have a Yanagi (http://rikumo.com/products/sori-yanagi-stainless-steel-tea-kettle ) which serves me well. I didn't pay $165 for it though, even in typically more expensive Canada.
