"American-born Sonoko Kondo spent many of her childhood years in Kamakura, Japan, in the home of her grandmother. It was there that she learned the uniquely Japanese way of appreciating and preparing food that evolved into The Poetical Pursuit of Food. From Grandmother, Sonoko learned to savor fresh foods in their season, to prepare them in ways that preserve their individual tastes and textures, and to present dishes that nourish all the senses." - from the dj flap.
