  1. Ach du lieber Augustine. Das schmecken seht ja gut aus. Es freut mich das dus, im Restrauten, hat Johann’s Geburtstag machen. Frauliche Geburtstag Johann.

  2. I spent a spring back in 1985 packing and freezing herring in Alaska. Everything we processed went onto a Japanese boat. All they were interested in was the roe. Now I know why. Good summer travels!

    • Yeah, the roe is tasty. A lot has changed in the past 20 years. Americans have finally discovered their taste for a variety of seafood, so maybe we’re not sending all of it to Japan these days. The natives in Alaska have always gathered and cured herring roe. Hope you guys have a fun Fourth!

  3. Oh Babette, you have found your go-to place now, huh? The cuisine ooks wonderful and yes, uber authentic. Even natto? Amazing! I happen to love natto myself, but I’m sure for most people the slimy, stinky stuff is truly a provervial “acquired taste”! Keep the great posts coming, I love them!

    • Good, now I know two people who can enjoy my portion of natto. The taste for me is ok…after I get past the slimy, sticky and stinky. 😉 I’m glad to see you’re still following along. Keep cool, Kitty.
