Shabu1

Nippon Paleo Fondue Part One (ichi) Konnichiwa! This past month, I had a wonderful trip to Japan. But it wasn’t my first trip there. I had the pleasure of living in Japan for about three years in the early nineties, being a military child, and returned a few times thereafter. So had plenty of time to see touristy sights…

Pork and Lotus Stir Fry

Chines Pork and Lotus Stir Fry 046

As I admired all the exotic ingredients in the produce market, I thought of all the things I could do with them especially the lotus root. And got a little excited of the things I’d make. But then all hope…

Keep Up the Tempo – Tempo Bistro in Waltham

Waltham, Waltham, WalTHAAM. I can’t say that I know the old Waltham very well. I never been to Sadie’s Saloon; because it gave me the illusion of abandonment long before it officially shut down. I’ve been to the Skellig just once, because you told me it was a happening place and a Moody staple. Perhaps ten years…

This adaptation of the cocktail into a soup exemplifies a refreshing sweetness with a hot finish. Radishes are boiled, blended with watermelon and subtle aromatics, then…

I’m simply eggstatic for this pastrami and arugula combination for an omelette. At the crack of dawn, there is nothing that would make you happier than a protein loaded brekkie. I just can’t keep my excitement shelled in any longer.
