So yesterday I had another orgasm of Japanese foo... tempura udon and a some pretty good sushi. The horse mackerel and scallops were the best. The rice on the unagi wasn't formed very well which was disappointing and the toro wasn't worth the markup. What's funny is after I read "The Story of Sushi" I said I'd try to pay more attention to the way sushi chefs work. While I was too busy reading and eating yesterday to watch the prep I did notice what he said about the the chefs making smaller rice balls for different customers and if there is a big guy eating lunch (HELLO) give him a little more rice etc. That was kinda neat I think.

(no homo) you've lost a lot of weight, bro. You look like a former fattie, but not a current fattie.

jeez, of course that's the paper's test kitchen. i cook at home on a 1957 o'keefe and merritt. i put that test kitchen together in the last great days of the old Times. We had just been sold for the first time and the new owners had yet to appear. we were changing floors and i asked for a new test kitchen and they said "of course". I asked for a budget and they said "spend what you need." now we're picking up nickels on the sidewalk out front, but it was great then.

I am kinda scared to take pics at Jiro... apparently everybody goes in and eats in silence, in awe of Jiro's aura. It will be the quickest 3-star dining experience on earth.

Yeah...I saw the documentary last month. I wouldn't fuck around with a camera.

That's awesome.

My co-workers were telling me about the glory days and then even 10-12 years ago at the AJC, CNN etc. Now the AJC doesn't even endorse candidates, done under the guise of "we don't need to tell you how to vote" but they also have a total zero researchers working on that sort of stuff now so they don't want to go out on a limb... man... things ain't what they used to be.

So, fountain Cokes (and I guess, by extension, fountain cokes) are fucking awesome.

Buzzwords like "farm-to-table," says Keller, don't even mean anything: “What restaurant isn’t farm to table? I think about quality, not geography.” And climate change? Not his problem: "The world’s governments should be worrying about carbon footprint."

Keller 2012.
