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, especially my travels).

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, again in November 2019 and hope to be back soon.
In July 2012 I visited Japantown in San Fransisco, the next best thing!
I was lucky to be back in 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2019 thanks to the fact that we now have family living in California.
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.

I'm still here - and got a new bento box!

Yes, time flies. Only one post this year so far, but I'm still here. Just overworked.
But, I've decided to start making bento lunches again. I'm not so happy with food at work, and want to eat better.
To motivate myself I ordered a new bento box from Bento & co. Get yours here, they ship worldwide: Bento&co
It's a round box, red "laque", rabbits "usagi" from Hakoya.

Let me overflow you with pictures of this beauty:

Can't wait to fill it!

Old and new bento boxes, both with rabbits.

OMG! I've been watching animes lately and was curious of how an actual bento box looks like. I'm amazed with how Japanese people prepare their food. Thank you for showing your interest the Japanese culture. I'm definitely going to get my own bento box in the future!
