Welcome to my blog.

After a few random posts I've decided to dedicate this blog to my life long project of Japanese food
and culture (and my life in general).

Since my first taste of sushi back in 1997 I've been interested in, and frequently been making
Japanese food.
My interest in the country and culture started long before and continues to evolve.
I was lucky to finally visit Japan in October 2008 and hope to be back soon.
In July 2012 I visited Japantown in San Fransisco, the next best thing!
Both small and big adventures will from now on, as time permits, be shared with you.

I will post other recipes and pictures too, mainly cooking projects, plants and art projects
(including my new love - making kumihimo braided objects).

I hope you'll find it interesting, and feel free to leave a comment or ask questions!

I write mainly in English, but there will be some Norwegian too, especially posts about things
that mainly have Norwegian interest. Tutorials are bi-lingual.

So far in June....

... I´ve been buzy!

Last Saturday I had the pleasure of going to the marketplace in Drøbak, "Torget" (Drøbak is a small town south of Oslo), to sell my kumihimo jewelry and meet other vendors.  I got sunburned and sold some stuff. I also bought this very nice bracelet (or, Mr. Linuz bought it, that is):


It´s a bracelet made in the style used by Vikings, and hand crafted by KarianneG.

I´ve also ordered some more promo-material. These small, but very nice mini-cards come from Moo. They love to print - and it shows! If you would like a 10% discount, send me a message, and I´ll forward you a coupon or a digital link. I get some bonus too, so we both win!


This year, there is no Japanse vegetables in my garden.... so shiso either. Still thinking about growing some though. But, I do have a very nice paprika plant (bell pepper) and some lovely salad! Paprika is not done yet, but I eat fresh salad every day. What a treat! 


Do you have anything growing in your garden?
