Feed Me Till I Want No More

One of the greatest surprises about Japan is the bread. Before I came here, I thought that the Japanese did not eat bread, but rice, baby whales and dolphins. Now, after 4 years I have no doubt that the best bread and patisserie in the world is to be found in Japan.

At the university, there are freshly baked Baguettes as from 4:00 every evening. They are totally like flavorful and streaks ahead of the majority of the tired sticks available in Freeeeeance.

We made a decision a couple of years ago to give the catering contract to a bunch of local hippies rather than a big proven catering conglomerate. Occasionally you get it right.

They produce delicious meals made from vegetables and stuff grown and er caught and er slaughtered just down the road a piece. The also bake an incredible range of bread and patisserie right on the spot.

Hail to the bakers at OIST. They have my total admiration

I think the scrupulosity, meticulosity, fastidionosity of the Japanese has turned making bread into an art form.

    Re: Standing There. Yeah, but SHE was just seventeen. (You know what I mean).

  2. You mean wrong object pronoun?

    • Mike Taylor says:

      No. While you were both “standing there”, the comparison ends there since she was “just seventeen” but you were, er, not. And the way she looked was way beyond compare.

    I like the way they spell “baguette” correctly (and ciabatta). Did you have something to do with that ? Please tell me that they also have pain au chocolat.
