Lonely Planet started a new series of cookbooks, called From the Source. The idea is to capture a place through its food, and include recipes from the best cooks who make the food — all with gorgeous photos throughout. This summer, editions for Italy and Thailand were released (photo above). I want to make everything.
Next up: Japan. I’m contributing the chapter on Tohoku & Hokkaido. The photographer and I are still in the process of sorting out our plans, but it looks like we’ll be road-tripping deep into Hokkaido. I can’t wait!
