Summer quietly whizzed past me, leaving me a bit out of sorts and unprepared for fall. I’m usually looking forward to this time of year, when the hot weather slowly turns cool, but this year I’m wanting to hold on a little bit before jumping into sweaters, pumpkins, and pie. I haven’t had the chance to properly introduce my new job, but if you follow me on instagram or twitter you will have noticed that I’m still working in the food industry. I’m constantly looking at food, reading about food, tasting food, but rarely for me, mostly for my job that I haven’t really had time or rather the energy to try out new recipes and experiment, thus the “Summer of Pavlovas.”

We had a great meal at Sushi Kanesaka so it only made sense to go check out Tsukiji Market where all the fish was probably sourced. Restaurants and serious buyers go early in the morning to bid on the freshest seafood, but there was still plenty of fish for sale by the time we got there just before noon.

A few weeks ago, my family took a short trip to Tokyo. We didn’t make a long list of things to do or see, but we did make sure to have a reservation at a good sushi restaurant. There are many exceptional places in Tokyo, but not all are foreigner friendly. Even some of the Michelin starred restaurants don’t accept non-Japanese diners (!?), but luckily Sushi Kanesaka isn’t one of them and we were able to get a reservation for dinner.

For my sister and her husband’s first trip to Korea as a married couple, my parents threw a little backyard party for them. Not all of my relatives were able to attend the wedding because it was abroad, so it also served as a sort of a mini reception as well. Working along that spirit, I decided to put together a dessert bar. It wasn’t super fancy or difficult, but it did make the whole place look quite festive!
