In the Japanese Kitchen

Taste Profiles. Heat. Style. Tools.

For me, living in Japan is a constant mix of wonder and opportunity. As a former baker, and pretty decent home chef, I remain eagerly attached to every nuance of Japanese food I can digest, and every new tool I can justify purchasing to help fuel our at home Izakaya meals. Of course, a home is not simply the kitchen, it's the Ofuro, the garden, and one's living space. It's also what goes into these spaces that makes them what they are. It's about the garden fresh flowers that decorate the desk, as much as the desk itself. In this new section of Nihon Hustle, I'll take apart what living looks like in Japan and what we use to make the house our home. Enjoy. —Doc
