Dashi is a Japanese broth that is the base of miso soup and many noodle soups. It is a relatively simple process with minimal ingredients, but the technique makes all the difference. If you are interested in cooking Japanese food, this is a good one to learn.

I know its basically spring, but I finally finished editing this video. Check it out and grow some greens. It’s still prime time to plant. If you want epic food sometimes you have to grow it yourself.

This is a video I shot a few months back with Minh. This is an easy recipe, and I highly recommend making the chicken part for sure.

I watched this documentary recently on Netflix, and I loved every minute of it. Juicing is such a great addition to your normal diet or as a cleanse like they do in the documentary. Check it out.

I borrowed a juicer to try out, and I’ve been making some insanely healthy juice blends that taste delicious. It’s all about the micro nutrients.

  • I saw this, too. It starts out as your standard kind of documentary but then it gets really touching when the filmmaker develops the relationship with the truck driver. He really helped that guy change, probably save, his life. I second the recommendation!

I’m always trying to find cool videos on artisan foods. Check this one out.

I listen to speakers on TED every once in a while, and I thought Jaime Oliver’s talk was right on the money. If you don’t know about TED, and you’re into intellectual talks, you should check it out at www.ted.com.

Check out this video I found on how to peel garlic in less than 10 seconds. I do this in a mason jar now with up to 5 gloves, and it works perfectly. Try it.
