Here we are already!!! So best wishes for this new year!!! Last year we promised a few new things for TPS, but we in the end didn’t feel it was reasonable to start this new adventure. Indeed, in retrospect in 2017, P. hasn’t contributed much and it seems that she has no plan to do contribute much in 2018... but who knows? On my side, the end of 2017 has given you a glimpse of what 2018 will look like for me: a lot more travel to Europe and in particular to Florence in Italy. That will be a great excuse for me to cook more Italian food and produces than ever, to try to master pasta and gnocchi, and some others of the many Tuscany’s delights. I’m also hoping to make a Tuscany olive oil tour-and-review later in the spring or the summer. Of course, fresh, seasonal and local ingredients will always be the core of my homemade cooking, and mixing French, Italian and Japanese influences, techniques and produces will continue to be the essence of my preparations. And they will remain mainly vegetarian, sometimes vegan.
