Hokkaido JUNKtion: Lucky Pierrot WHALE Burger

by Yoko Kumano

One of the best things about Hakodate, Hokkaido was that there were no McDonalds. This seems very odd, considering Hakodate isn’t such a tiny city. But not so odd, when you know that it has its own home-grown fast food chain Lucky Pierrot that could take over the world, just like McDonald’s, if it wanted […]

Umamiporn: California Sun-kissed Picturelog

I risked contracting the swine flu to indulge in my second passion after eating – photography with my grandma’s 1970s Nikon EM film camera.I love taking photos of food in Tokyo, but there’s something about the California sun that saturates food […]

ReCPY: Perfect Baked Fries for Perfect Burgers

by Moto Yamamoto

I had a busy weekend, and didn’t have time to cook so I dug up old pictures for this week’s ReCPY. When making burgers, inevitably you have to make fries as well. However, I cannot fry fries, since my BF doesn’t eat fried food. I have made oven baked fries, but it’s always a bit […]

I have done a lot of thinking about why Japanese people aren’t vegetarians, and I think it is because they originally do not have many meat products in their diet, with the exception of fish. Dairy is also very […]

Sometimes Gadgets are the Key for Best Tasting Meals

by Moto Yamamoto

I used to have a LOT of kitchen gadgets. Well, I still do, but I managed to sell food processor, and other various items. Pasta maker is something I am looking into for next purchase. My Kitchen Aid stand mixer is an item from heaven if you cook or bake. It makes my life so […]
