Kamaage shirasu, called “boiled whitebait” in English, which makes it sound disgusting. It’s delicious and not “fishy” at all. Great on hot rice, pasta, even on pizza. It’s sort of like very mild and just lightly salted anchovies. Something that’s almost impossible to find outside of Japan, and when you can find it it’s been frozen. . . . #washoku #japanesefood #japan #しらす #shirasu

Konbu seaweed and wasabi leaf tsukudani. Salty sweet, packed with umami, just mildly wasabi-ish. So good!This is the kind of food I miss the most when I’m not in Japan. Real soul food. . . . #washoku #japan #japanesefood #tsukudani #seafood #和食 #佃煮 #やっぱり日本人

Rosé with ice cubes. Yes it is a legit thing. Some rosés sold here even say on the label that serving with ice cubes is recommended. . . . #livinginfrance #livinginfrance #provence #france #wine #rose #summer #rosewine

Trying something new... . I have very bad eyesight, so without my glasses things are pretty blurry. This is how the sky looks right now from my window at 6:20am, as I’m sitting up in bed. The sun is rising, but a thunderstorm is starting too. The sky looks so biblical. . . . #livinginprovence #livinginfrance #provence #vaucluse #france

Seasonal fruit tartlets. Believe it or not, you can get mediocre to bad versions of this kind of thing in France too. These, however are pretty good

Bread bread bread. From this bakery it’s as good as it looks. We are so lucky to have it just 3 minutes from our house. . . . . #livinginfrance #livinginprovence #bread #frenchfood #france #vaucluse

I love the little stone huts or barns in the middle of the fields in France. Each region has its own style, but the ones in Provence are the prettiest I think. . . . . #livinginfrance #dromeprovencale #livinginprovence #provence #summer #france #vineyard

Not a pêche de vigne, but a nectarine de vigne (aka nectavigne). As intensely delicious as it looks. . . . #livinginprovence #livinginfrance #provence #vaucluse #summer #france #fruit
