Finally reached the big number,1000. For five years,SD has been my main activity outside work,and I have to say I truly enjoyed it!I thank everyone who has given me the support to keep me going,you know who you are! I will celebrate this special post with a most humble dish. In the food world,lucky to I am blessed with an extensive palate.I love the culinary adventures at starred restaurants occasionally,I appreciate hard to seek ingredients and how they are transformed into a pretty looking dish,it's magical for me. These days,I am more at ease cooking andeating at home,andmost of the time,working with very unassuming ingredients that I could get inexpensively at local markets.It's always the enjoyment level that counts,not the cost,andeating a piece of good tofu gives me as much satisfaction as wagyu,uni or fatty tuna etc...
I rarely spend excessively on anything and I would never scream about luxurious food,I only care for good cooking. This dish I made is just a simple tofu and with spring onion sauce,the way I like it,pretty straightforward,I find myself keep coming back to things like this.I would also like to give a special mention to plate ceramicist #小嶋亜創 San. Many things are happening to me in October,my work place is moving to a new location,and while in the process of this,I am off to a few cities in Europe for two weeks,also while I am still at home,I seriously need to clear up my fridge and pantry. I'll be taking a break from SD,shall return in November!
Rizmu San,thank you so much,you are one of the kindest person I have known,always giving encouragement and support,very much appreciated! I love to cook and eat different cuisines,play around with ingredients and try to create something more interesting.Photo shooting and ceramics are also my passions,I am glad I found SD so I could share what I like with all you amazing cooks! I am also a big fan of Rizmu San,when looking back at your posts long ago,I discovered many great dishes,you could absolutely make anything,sometimes even better than professionals,I truly admire your talent!I hope one day I could take a good look of what you did before,so I could get more inspirations! October is going to be very busy time for me indeed,I better take a break from SD,but for sure I'll checking your posts! Of course,I will come back stronger in November!
