As for Saveur magazine, I read a truly inspiring article by Francis Lam on Ms. Sonoko Sakai: Sonoko Dreams of Soba.

I adapted Ms. Sakai’s recipe and made my own version of soba salad, check my March 21st, 2016 recipe posting!

My first ever formal sushi making class: Taka’s Sushi Making class at Nikkei Heritage Centre (separate blog post coming soon)

Earlier this month I took a class with my food buddy Jo; it was a very humbling and wonderful learning experience.  I’m registered to take another class on April 02! It’s all about technique and patience:

A tour for hobby chefs at sponsor Whole Foods on Cambie; and upcoming March 31 “huddle” – get together with other hobby chefs, sponsored by Cressey

It was fun to meet Annika, organizer of the event and a few other hobby chefs! Whole Foods Cambie’s concierge Ms. Lucia was absolutely personal and wonderful; she took us on a one hour tour and sample different citrus fruits, maple smoked salmon and cheese platter!  Did you know there’s actually a cheese sommelier in the store?
