It has taken the Japanese to make me love corn. I don't like corn on or off the cob and this summer in Toronto I just watched while my husband and friends delighted in gnawing it off the cob. Well here in chilly Melbourne in a Japanese restaurant Izakaya Den I had sweet corn kaki age - kernels of corn held together by a tempura batter, then deep fried and served with green tea salt. Fabulous.

A photo of what I've been eating. No I haven' turned vegetarian it's just the salads look prettier than the grilled sausages.
This is hello and goodbye. The manuscript for my next book ODDBITS went to the publisher this week and I leave for Australia on Saturday. I hope to post from down under and describe what I discover and even make use of my twitter account so watch this space. And anyone complaining about this hot humid summer remember that winter is just around the corner. Enjoy sweating while you can I'm off with my winter coat, long underwear and gloves to wintery Melbourne.
Au revoir et bientôt.
