Have you ever tasted Japanese Mochi? You should.

Japan is a beautiful, magical place. Their sense of aesthetics runs through everything from clothing to architecture to packaging and food. I remember stopping into a small shop to grab a cheese sandwich and receiving something that looked like an art piece - two perfect triangles with the crust removed. Even the bag the sandwich was placed in was beautiful, sealed with a gold medallion. I never got used to everything as art, but I liked it. Food as an art form is celebrated in the Japanese semi-sweet, chewy rice treats called mochi. Once you try it, you'll want more.

A West Elm Mystery

A friend of mine sent me this photo. It's a picture of a women with the following, "Chris Silverston founded Cape Town artist' collective Potter's Workshop in 1991.

All Organic milk is the same, right?

Posted August 1, 2012

Featured Certification

The symbol is designed for use on products and packages. It is designed to allow consumers, composters, waste haulers and officials easily distinguish those plastic products designed to biodegrade quickly, completely and safely, when composted in well-run municipal and commercial facilities. No plastic residues will be left behind to destroy the value of the finished compost. Products are tested in approved, independent laboratories. BPI's scientists check the data to verify that the products meet requirements in ASTM Specifications D6400 or D6868. The ASTM Specifications used by the BPI resulted from eight years of intensive work by leading scientists, resin producers and the composting industry. Passing these specifications mean that a product will biodegrade completely, quickly and safely-just like yard trimmings and food scraps. ASTM D6400 is designed to cover plastic films and bags. ASTM D6868 is for packaging that is designed to be composted, including plastic coated paper and board.
