The very first days of sudden hot weather always make me happy but I have a hard time adjusting with the temperature and never know what are the proper clothing. I feel kind of feverish without being sick. When this happens I like super simple a freshfood, eating melon and grapes a lot, and preparing some very simple dishes. Brown rice is a real treat in that case. Simple to prepare, both delicious warm or cold, easy to accommodate with all the vegetables and herbs. I love shiso for its fresh taste and its herbal texture, thinely chopped and mixed twith rice is just a perfect match. As for the vegetables I take what is available on the market, and because we didn't go to Ohara, it's not that fancy: mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, salad. The dressing is a simple olive oil plus a bit of fresh lemon and a few drops of soya sauce. Simple as can be!
