Celeste Heiter's Adventures in Asian Food & Film

Next Month's Dinner & a Movie

It's official: I've decided to prepare a Japanese dinner, paired with the Juzo Itami classic, Tampopo, one of the greatest food movies in the history of film. I've been preparing basic Japanese dishes in my own kitchen on a regular basis for more than 15 years now, so this time I want to try something new...something a little more challenging than California Rolls and Teriyaki Chicken. So, over the next few days, I'll be poking around in my many Japanese cookbooks, and scouring the Internet for some new recipes. I'm even thinking of going 'Pacific Rim' with some contemporary Asian-Fusion flavors. This is gonna be fun!
