Hello dear readers! As you may have noticed, we have strayed a bit lately. Robin as strayed very far indeed, as far as Japan in fact. For that reason, at the moment she doesn’t have much to say about goings on in Dublin but in exchange she has been working on a little webcomic about the coffee scene in the beautiful former capital of Japan. You can watch out for updates on huntandgather.ie
Our event with the ‘Kombu Ojisan’ is a go!
We are holding the talk in 3FE on Lwr Grand Canal St and we’ll be on at 6:30
If you’d like to share the event it would be totally appreciated!
The price for the talk is 12€ this is to cover some of the expenses that Kiyomitsu Kitajo has incurred through an awful mess that his got him here!
Here it is! August’s menu in it not very detailed glory! Here’s some details fro you.
This man is Kiyomitsu Kitajo, he’s an expert in kombu and for that he’s also an expert in umami, due to some odd circumstances he’s come in to our life’s for the next few days.
He’s the general manager of the Tenma Osaka Kombu Company, begun by his father 55 years ago, Mr. Kitajo is but one of a handful of kelp merchants left in the Osaka’s traditional market area of Tenma-bashi.
