"Talent" Mai Satoda, 27, is now an author. She has just released a book, "How to Eat the Best Rice in the World," which features recipes of rice dishes that she cooked in Sado, Niigata Prefecture.
Reporters at the book launch were more interested in her love life and asked Satoda about her boyfriend, baseball player Masahiro Tanaka, 22. Satoda said he hasn't complained about her cooking. But she said the couple have no wedding plans just yet.© Japan Today
