Hello from Osaka, Japan

Just a quick hello from Osaka. I grew up in Switzerland and started baking there when I was about 6 years old. Grew up enjoying gourmet cooking and developed a desire to experiment in the kitchen at a very young age. Moved to Canada and started reading Gourmet Magazine in the 1970s. Still get my favourite magazine now that I live in the foodie city of Osaka.

Mention Osaka, and the first thing that comes to mind is okonomiyaki. Now I'm craving for some.

Welcome to our house!

Thanks all.

Roadfix, there's a great Okonomiyaki restaurant just down the road from me. We always go with friends and order a variety of Okonomiyaki, also some Yakisoba.
