This is my restaurant in San Diego. Ono Sushi has been my life for almost 12 years. I can’t really believe it. I have never ever, in my entire life, willingly stayed in one place that long. What up with that! Bam I’ll be fifty this September and the restaurant will be Twelve. Crazy run for the restaurant business…

This is one of my favorite sauces. It is delicious, versatile, and super easy to make. I first came across this sauce on a trip to Vietnam in 2000.

It was a good week for the kitchen, home studio remodel. Work progresses slowly it seems, because we are living in a construction site, but the demo is finished, the room is taking shape and at least we are putting things in now rather than tearing things out…
