Hello Stephanie, lovely to see you the other night and I'm sorry I had to dash. Thanks so much for the mention. Always an honour. Shiso leaves... I consulted my one and only Japanese cookbook and it mentioned deep-frying them to use as a tempura garnish or finely chopping as a somen garnish. Cheers.

Stephanie, a breathtakingly beautiful tribute. I have a similar relationship with my mum. Her health is what brought me back to Australia. Our time with family is so fleeting and precious. Thank you for sharing your story. What a wonderful man and and an equally wonderful daughter. Syrie

Divine. The egg looks heavenly. It is slow-poached? I had something similar at Momofuku in New York. I also love traditional Thai breakfasts of soupy rice topped with dried anchovies, pickles and a raw egg which poaches in the soup. Much better than microwaved porridge. Alas I have no tips. I usually just eat bircher (slow oats) soaked overnight in a mixture of apple juice, milk and honey and then topped with grated green apples and passionfruit. Thanks for the great twitter plug!

One of my faves indeed. It'd certainly beat hospital food! Hope all is ok with your dad.

wonderful meanderings...although I'm worried to hear about your growing aversion to coriander...hopefully it will fade. I hated dill for several years. The smell of it made me queasy. I kind of got over it though and have started to incorporate it my cooking again.

A wonderful list Stephanie. We're not having any gifts this Christmas or for that matter, any other Christmas going forward unless they are donations to some of the smaller charities. I hope you have a happy, safe holiday season with lots of love, laughter, food and family. You're writing is inspirational.
