Another very quick note (I’m still out of the country and internet access is spotty so I can’t do much full-on blogging):
Jaden Hair, that magnanimous Tampa-based goddess of nouveau-Asian cooking, just wrote a flattering little piece about a conversation that she and I had a couple weeks back. Great to know that some high-level foodies and journos are openly concerned about and interested in sustainability, even when it comes to sushi. Check out the article here.
Jaden’s blog, www.steamykitchen.com, is hugely popular and a great source of information for those interested in the contemporary stylings of Asian cuisine. I encourage you all to check it out. Also, I’ve heard rumors that she’s got a new cookbook coming out in the next few months… but which kinds of fish is she going to be cooking with? I guess we’ll see…!
