hello, i am popping back in over the christmas/new year break.
i hope you are enjoying your holidays?

i just needed to pass this on.
when i saw masao yamamoto's photos 
on the indescribably perfect a drawing diary
my heart actually stopped for a few fleeting moments.
this is perhaps the most perfect photography, for me.
so i have collected some here that most hold me,
i hope they speak to you, too.

    and thanks lindsay - yep, i love just hungry's maki - i think she does an amazing job to post so comprehensively on japanese cooking and food. yep, the vego dashi is so important to me, i don't really use the specific recipes, but i like to try out different water to kombu ratios, and also use a shiitake version. there is a book called "dashi and umami" which is a really wonderful book about the importance of dashi (stock) in japanese cooking: http://www.amazon.com/Dashi-Umami-Heart-Japanese-Cuisine/dp/1897701934
