Love your comment!!

I guess it's all in the name of 'scientific research'. I am Australian and I hate the way Australians apply rules to one and not to another. Don't kill the sharks.... They belong there. Come into my house and try to take something from the fridge. You won't get through the door!!

Hello Cameron! I like what you are trying to do... Give it everything you have.... My only real advice is stop reading and replying to comments on this article! I know you need the votes and this stream gives you a chance at drumming up support. But, they WILL NOT be convinced!

Just make an amazing piece and let those who want to see it, see it! I look forward to it. I live in Ibaraki, so it has had a small impact on me and my young family as well. I would love to see something that paints a brighter picture!

Good luck mate

In continuance, 'morals of young people'???? Are you that docile? You must have been an amazing child! Never did anything wrong, eh? Morals of a child come from a variety of sources. Or perhaps you have forgotten that. Not only parents are to blame here. Yes, parents need to bring there kids up so they can meet the needs of society. I'm not blind. Bet i had it tougher than you! But to suggest they have no morals would be the same as suggesting your comments carry any weight! JT don't cut me off... I raise kids. I teach kids. I pray for kids everyday. I have hopes for ALL of them, but with attitudes like those displayed from comments generated by some of your readers i am very scared for their futures!

Just a note to some who have commented! These girls are not prostitutes nor are they sluts! Even if you had bothered to check your dictionaries, you would know that. Everytime an article appears like this it gathers the most comments. Comments of disgust and outrage... Are you for real? To the fathers, I also have a daughter. I don't want her to feel that she has to earn money like this. I hope that i can provide for her and teach her to be responsible. Just as you do! Society is sick. A service like this, kids feeling the need to have to earn a living like this, and those who feed off articles like this! It makes me vomit! Lots to say but I'm on the train and couldn't be bothered. Thanks JT for keeping us up to date on what our saddened, lonely, and depressed children are doing to make up for where we are failing!

So basically unesco is heading down the same path as Michelin? It's sad really! These reference points should be a guide for us to consult. Unfortunately both have gone to the gutter!

Awesome! I love the idea of going outside and getting it yourself. I also like the fact that you keep it a secret. Keep it that way or you will loose your supply and your uniqueness. Top 10 next year? go for it!!

From my own personal investigations through the news and the images we are constantly shown on tv and in the paper, 'it's broken!'

How quick was i to come to this conclusion? About a day after the earthquake and tsunami! I'm a genius!

Can you just fix it, please?

It takes four years for someone to become a teacher (in any subject) in some countries! I don't see how and ALT or JET could help in anyway... What? Armed with a copy of JUMP and several action figures from childhood isn't enough? Oh my God!

A long time ago a very friendly NHK man came to my door. "I'm sorry!' I said, "but I don't speak Japanese". Two days later the English speaking version of the same NHK man came around. Ha ha ha ! TOTALLY OWNED!

Posted in: It’s time for some real British food and drink in Tokyo See in context

go go go, you have got got got no idea what you are talk talk talking about!!

Cleo, I think you were asking about my comment. making cheese is not that hard. especially soft cheeses. Basically you bring milk and cream to the boil, add a squeeze of lemon, pinch of salt, and a Tablesoon of vinegar. You can flavor it with anything you like. Let it sit in the pot while it cools and watch the magic happen. it separates. Pour the mix through a fine sifter, with tiny holes so you don't loose everything. The stuff you don't need will run down your sink, the stuff you do need will stay in the sifter. What you do with it after that is up to you. For a hard cheese, strain it and press it, soak it in brine, press it again and dry it in a cloth. You could get cheeky and coat it with red wax. For soft cheese mould it, wrap it in cloth and stick it in your fridge. Easy. Good luck with it

To all those who say, I really wish I could have a British this or a British that! Try to do it yourself... You will be so happy you did. I make my own cheese, sausages, smoked meats, pastas, sauces and breads, and I am currently working on building a brick oven in the garden. I was inspired to do so by the experience I mentioned in my previous post. The Internet has it all. Also check out: the meat guy Japan. He is a good resource

British food is Unbelievable and it is something that Tokyo needs!!!!!!!!!!!

I was in a little British pub in Kent about three years and I was forced to rethink my attitude towards British food!

I grew up in cooking in Oz before I moved to Japan. Got the trade papers etc and with my wealth of cooking experience and skill came to Tokyo to teach English (ha ha ha!) and have been for over ten years. Back to the story. It was recommended by a friend that I try a little pub out of town. With a taxi fee of about 16 pounds I was a little nervous. But I got out there and the first thing that anybody noticed was my Aussie accent. Once that was discussed the owner of the pub took me and my travel buddy for a garden tour. All sorts of GAME and meters of fresh veggies growing out there! The chef recently (at that time) moved over from London to take on a new role in the country. As a chef I was stunned! What do I eat when it's all right in front of me? One look at the menu, and a question from the owner, what would you like to order for lunch? Everything! I replied. But that's just impossible. Or is it? The guy brought out everything that he could fit onto a little wheelie cart and served us for about 2 hours. It was F.A.N.T.A.S.T.I.C.

To the writer. I would also be very interested in taking Tokyo by storm with British food (even though I'm an Aussie)...

I have fallen in love with it and have been cooking it for my slowly fattening family ever since I returned!

Good luck to you

From one chef to another
