Once I've packed away all the leftover Thanksgiving fixings, from the stray drumstick to the Bourbon Mashed Sweet Potatoes, it seems time for a fast. And, if not a fast, at least a slow down until the one-two-punch of my mid-December birthday and the onslaught of holiday parties.
So, it was refreshing to peruse a lighter, brighter food-related book, when the refined "Sushi: food for the eye, the body & soul" landed on my doorstep. A veritable bible exploring the world of sushi, the book evokes a calm precision and unfettered beauty that quiets the over-saturated mind and growling stomach after one too many helpings of Currant & Pinenut Stuffing and Pumpkin Gelato.
Making it all the more engaging, the book was written by a Danish professor of biophysics with a long-standing interest in gastronomy and its scientific basis.
Hmmm...From Denmark, eh?
Sushi followed by Ebelskivers! Might be just the ticket!
Oh my. Guess that whole "lighter, brighter" thing didn't last too long.
