Lemon cake

For my birthday for the past 6 or 7 years, when possible, A. bakes me a birthday cake of my choice. The season is such that it involves often lemon or apple. This year the tradition went on and he prepared on my request a lemon cake. With the lemon just harvested in the garden.... Continue Reading →

Getting old…

Tomorrow I'll turn one year up... now I know that I didn't achieve my main goal for this year, despite trying hard for the past few years, but I realized I actually don't care much because it doesn't depend on me actually but on appreciation of others, and being alien in a conservative country doesn't...

Moyashi – soya sprouts

Soya sprouts (or moyashi) are one of these things I love but I hardly buy and cook because it's hard to find some that are made properly. I remember reading about how they were made and stopped eating some. So last night when We went shopping after flying back from France, and I found organic... Continue Reading →

Xmas approaching

Except for some Xmas decorations and tangerine, pompe a l'huile and panettone I am not a big fan of Christmas. This time of forced happiness, of forced making presents and receiving some, the bad timing with my birthday following just after... no really... I could easily pass. And pass on the weeks before too starting... Continue Reading →

Harbor market

But... Continue Reading →

The weather reminded more of Parisian winter than that of Tokyo, giving an awkward feeling, and missing the fireplace very much. My head has been in the... Continue Reading →

Simmered kabocha

All a sudden it has become very cold and warm food, rich and tasty is more than necessary. During the autumn I have used a lot of butternut squash, leaving the little Japanese kabocha on the side for a while, knowing that they would be right there when needed in the winter, as the season...

Walnut bread

After a few weeks without kneading and baking bread it was time to get my hands in the dough again. First wanted to make a rich brioche for breakfast since it has been chilly the past few days... but then I realized I had no eggs... so I opted for bread... but I wanted something...

Today I was reading some articles and stumbled upon the word "angst". If I understood the general meaning so that my reading wasn't impeded, I still wanted a clear definition. It's not hard to search and find the answer and I started immediately to like this word very much, it described so well what I... Continue Reading →
