Long day. Fascinating lecture on Japanese food philosophy and why people here don’t get fat (all five tastes are satisfied in every meal) from culturist Elizabeth Andoh. Then lecture on decline of Japanese fish populations, and after that, somewhat unsure of why we are still eating so much fish. Highlight: Five-hour dinner with Harumi Kurihara, who is the much-nicer and much prettier version of Martha Stewart. We all fell madly in love with her. She is also staying with me in LA when she does her book signing in September. Everyone is best friends now.
Pictures slow to load with tech challenges, and I’m about to hit the sheets as it’s 7 a.m. my time.
