BLACK GARLIC






Growing up it was my Dad that was the cook.
Wherever he walked my little feet followed.

More often than not, his sheepwool slippers
was in the kitchen.
so was I.

My fascination for food started there,
in the heat of boiling water
&
steamy temperament.


Dad's note in translation; ' to all & each, if caught, is imposed with beheading. these five
are strictly for professionals.'


While dad was cursing the soul
who put his
shun santoki knifes in the dishwasher
and in tandem
telling tales of
sword making and japanese warriors.

I was samurai Tamoe Gozen
falling in love with Wada Yoshimori,  
&
Black Garlic.

All grown up 
I still 
end up standing next to dad's sheepwool slippers
in the kitchen
...
still learning.  
still falling in love.

This place is a collection of that love
and you're hereby invited to some of our 
dinners, desserts and drinks





Stay hungry  Stay soulfullish'

  3. Hey, nice to meet you Emma! And welcome to blogland! Such a beautiful beautiful first post - I´m thrilled and will be a happy follower ;o)
    Looking forward to beautiful posts about one of my favorite things...food... ;oD...by the way, in my childhood the (master-)cook was my mother...it was her hobby and I´ve never in my life eaten more delicious food than what my mother cooked. she died when she was 40 years...and unfortunatelly I´ve missed to learn from her while she was alive, because I always wanted to be outside in the nature. One of the few things I regret in my life...I´m happy for you that you spend so much beautiful time with your dad in the kitchen :o) Have a happy start here in blogland - I´m in love with blogs for a few years, don´t want to miss this.
    x, Tanja
