Get 21 21 Design Sight with KOME, The Art of Rice Exhibit, Tokyo, Until June 15

Looking up Tokyo Food File, one of my sources of inspiration in Tokyo, it did not take me long to decide what would be on the menu of this Tokyo Thursdays when I read Robbie's piece on KOME: The Art of Rice where he shares many details on the influence of rice in Japan from the average count of grains of rice in a tasty bowl (3000) to the influence of rice on landscape (dams had to be built to facilitate irrigation of rice fields) and to the connection between rice and Sakura (cherry blossoms)...

Kome, the art of rice

I will not repeat all Robbie wrote, I will invite you to read it.

You can get 21 21 Design Sight by visiting KOME: The Art of Rice exhibit at 21 21 Design Sight gallery in Tokyo until June 15, 2014. It was created by Taku Satoh and Shinichi Takemura

Irish still eat turnips as Rachel reminds us. You should also try her Barmbrack Speckled Loaf for St. Patrick's Day. Pot Roasted Duck Legs with Onions and Root Vegetables This is the food I love...
