Farm Fresh.

Tuesday, January 8, 2013

I was so happy to see cookbook author Nancy Singleton Hachisu and her husband, Tadaaki, an organic egg farmer, profiled on The Selby yesterday. Nancy and Tadaaki's farm is located in rural Japan; last fall, Nancy authored a cookbook, Japanese Farm Food, based on the fresh and flavorful foods they enjoy there. (Around the time of the book's release, I had the pleasure of attending a dinner in Nancy's honor at one of my favorite neighborhood restaurants, Diner. I was blown away by the food, all of which was made using her recipes, and now treasure my copy of the cookbook.) 

Did I mention that Nancy teaches cooking classes and runs an English-immersion preschool on the farm, as well? Feast your eyes, below. (And see the rest on The Selby, here.)


Have a warm and wonderful Tuesday!

PS: I'm guest-pinning all this week for online art gallery Ugallery. I'll be pinning different categories of art each day til the 14th, so please be sure to check back often - thank you to Ugallery for having me!

Their farm is gorgeous. Whereabouts in Japan? The kids are too cute.

ps: Happy 2013!

Wow! I'd like to be a pre-schooler all over again if that means I can go their school!

Also, I'm loving the Self Portraits you've pinned to UGallery! Can't wait to see more this week!

OH that farm looks so wonderful. I could use a good dose of outdoorsy time right now. And some homegrown cooking. Do you have any favorite recipes from the book? :)

Jo, the farm is located in Sataima, Japan.

Kathy, thank you!

Cassie, I LOVE the Japanese-style potato salad and the croquettes - comfort foods from my childhood! And the desserts are great, too. Try the sesame brittle!

Nicole, yes! Such a beautiful thing.

April, so do I! :)

I've been meaning to buy Nancy's cookbook ever since it was featured on The Kitchn! It's so awesome that Todd made it out there. I love these pictures.
