OK, three short things:
1. We have been persuaded that, actually, the film “Pig”, starring Nicholas Cage is really, really, really worth watching. So, whilst my earlier piece here, will stay on the blog, whatever the outcome of our viewing, I’ll be saying more about it later. Even if that means eating the the words of my earlier rant.
2. I’d f̶i̶v̶e̶, no, now only 4, jars like this fermenting away, of an always tasty & active kimchi recipe by @ChefRoyChoi,
one that I make all the time (& you should buy the book it’s from as it’s a great piece of writing!). But in this heat they really need burping every couple of hours…
Remember, burp them. Or they explode. Don’t be that person…
3. And speaking of eating, I now have both a delightful Konro grill for yakitori cuts
which looks like this in use
and a binchōtan charcoal quenching pot which looks like this
I had to buy the latter because no one I know who does ceramics offered to make me one. How about that for a kicker, eh?
And finally? Finally, if any Japanese readers could give me a quick translation of these care instructions, I’d be hugely grateful 🙂Binchotan pot instructions
