i just came across your site today (from a link on slashfood) and wanted to say that i LOVE it! your photos are divine, the recipes are great, and i even read what you write (instead of skipping right to the recipes like i do on some blogs). well done!
my guess is that you’re making sour cherry rice with saffron.
Looks like raisins, honey, and soy sauce. I hope it’s not crispy pig ears. You creeped me out when you said you liked those.
When my husband travelled to japan the guys there where always trying to get him to eat deep fried cartilage. He said no thank you. But they try it every time.
