Hi from Japan!

Hi everyone,

I thought I'd introduce myself. I'm from L.A. but an expat in Japan for the past five years or so. Being from LA I grew up with soy this, carob that, and whole grain younameit; I recently stumbled across CREAM and it's been down hill since.

You wouldn't believe how radically my diet has changed in the past three months.

Anyway, I'm teaching myself "proper" cooking with whole eggs, whole milk, chocolate, white sugar, ad infinitum -- so I look forward to learning from you all.

Cheers,
steven

Welcome to DC and yeah, it's a good thing you dropped those healthy habits. Now, when you are 120, you can die happy - not healthy.

Tell us what took you to Japan, what are you doing there. Post some decent Japnise recipes that are easy to do it here. I mena finding some foods here might be a chalange.

After eating my first proper mousse I realized I could never go back to my Tofu Chocolate Mousse -- who knew cream and eggs could be addicting?



I came here to pay off my student loans but I ended up really loving it here and am in the process of buying an apartment. It's really easy to live here minus the rising prices recently:

2.5kg flour 7-10USD
10 eggs 2-3USD
200g butter 4USD

How are prices on your side of the planet?

One brother I had in service was in the Counter Intelligence over there. He cannot say enough about how it used to be. Doesn't know if it still is the same. What city are you in? he did climb Mt Fuji.
