BANANA GRANOLA

COOKIN’ HAIKU

buffet lunch

MUSIC: United Future Organization – Niji

Taman kad  sam pomislila da sam iscrpela sve “food wise” što mi je bilo interesantno, na Flickru isplivava BANANA GRANOLA. Hrana, aranžmani i recepti – out of this world. As far as I’m concerned, ovo bi komotno mogao da bude autentičan meni onog restorančića na kraju univerzuma, iz Autostoperskog Vodiča kroz galaksiju. :-)

Ne uspevam da iščačkam ko je Banana Granola i čime se bavi. Sve što saznajem o njoj, nalazi se upravo na njenom Flickr profilu. Dolazi iz Osake i sprema, fotka i jede opasnu klopu. A zapravo, najinteresantnija stvar u čitavoj ovoj priči je to što ispod svake fotorgafije možete da pročitate naziv jela i upoznate se s njegovim sastojcima. Tako se listanje njenih fotki pretvara u divan, mali čas japanske gastronomije.

Vegetables: lotus root, annou sweet potato, carrot, pumpkin, red onion, zucchini, midi tomato, shimeji mushrooms, myoga, manganji sweet pepper. Miso and sesame sauce: miso, sesame seed paste, rice vinegar, sesame oil, sake, kinome. Simple but steamed vegetables are yummy.
