ok, I present here some of what I adored in Hokkaido.
A bowl of rice topped with salmon roe. Visually it pleased me, as it is something precious conceptually as it represents the life.
a big flatfish on the plat remind me of nostalgic images. when I was young I followed my father going fishing. Flatfishes and a kind of Atka mackerel called "Hokke" in Japanese were never difficult to fish.
Honestly saying, I'm not passionated for mochi, rice cake. I'm haunted by fear that I get it stuck in my throat when alone. There are many ways to die and i found it is one of the most difficult ways in the world.
I love something soft to eat. Tofu, Hanpen, and a kind of barbarian cream ( especially with fruit) ... of all, mother's cup-steamed egg ( like the picture) is what makes me return there at least once per year. As one of my aims for this year, I vow to buy an instrument allowing me to cook this kind of steamed cuisines...
ume brandy ( plum liqueur) is the best liqueur in the world. of course I could find it in Paris but not exactly what I want. since one year and a half, I fabricate it at home. without ume brandy, no tranquil life.
