Nagasaki, Japan: More Than You Think

Nagasaki, Japan: More Than You Think Jan 29th, 2013 at 1:00PM: Outside of Japan, the port town of Nagasaki is simply known for one thing – the bombing that ended the second world war. There are plenty of reminders around the city, such as the striking single-legged torii gate (below) whose other half was blown off in the atomic blast, the stirring statues scattered about town and numerous memorials.

Nov 14th, 2012 at 5:00PM: "For Udon and Country" from The Perennial Plate on Vimeo. It's easy to think of udon noodles as just another delicious kind of food, but, as with most food, there's more to the story than what winds up on your plate.

But be warned: some of the food preparation footage, as you might suspect, is a...

Opening A Box Of Japanese Cookies

Opening A Box Of Japanese Cookies May 26th, 2012 at 12:00PM: As I mentioned in a previous post, my wife recently came home from an astronomy meeting in Tokyo and brought back lots of Japanese snacks. One of them was this tempting box of cookies she got at a sweet shop next to the university. My wife loves Japanese culture. She loves the orderliness and attention to detail, both important traits for a scientist despite media stereotypes, and she loves...

Photo of the Day (09.27.10)

Photo of the Day (09.27.10) Sep 27th, 2010 at 6:30PM: There are two kinds of people in the world: those who mix together all of the food on their plate and those who like to keep food segregated. Personally, I'm a mixer. I like to get some potatoes on my fork before stabbing a piece of turkey. Or allowing the rice and beans to hitch a ride with my ropa vieja on their way to my mouth. For some people, though, such mixing is akin to culinary...
