Red moon and quince

If you have been subscribing to my blog or even reading the occasional post, chances are you know I have a new book coming out next year which I am pretty excited about but also still need to keep a bit hush hush with in regards to content. Its a publicist's and publisher's nightmare to peak too soon! Needless to say it has something to do with Japan....   I'm clearly not giving away too much there..

I am just starting to play with recipe ideas for the following book .... and last Saturday night I shared some potential dishes with a few of my friends here in Kyoto.  It was a great night with encouraging thumbs up  all round and the whole evening was made so much more auspicious by glowing red of the full lunar eclipse (and the Karin/Quince).  Here's a sneak peak....


  1. It looks absolutely G.o.r.g.e.o.u.s!

  2. Ha Ha - thanks David. Unfortunately the food is not very pretty as trying to get about 20 dishes out at once in a kitchen the size of a matchbox ain't easy!! Anyway - that's what stylists are for and why in book form they will be a lot more g.o.r.g.e.o.u.s!!

  3. lucky friends...looks like a fabulous night to attend. & to capture it as well as make it is rather impressive! i love the snaps along with all the gorgeous japanese bowls! have a happy silly season. dayle

  4. Hey Dale - yeah it was quite the night...a lot of work but fun.
    You have a great year's end and here's to 2012.
    take care. J
