What do the culinary and ceramic arts have in common? Both celebrate nature’s bounty and human creativity. The collaborative efforts of farmers and foragers, cooks and ceramicists nourish our bodily and aesthetic appetites. Elizabeth Andoh, award-winning author of Washoku: Recipes from the Japanese Home Kitchen (Ten Speed Press, 2005) and Director of A Taste of Culture culinary arts program (Tokyo) and Tadashi Ono, acclaimed chef at Matsuri restaurant in the Maritime Hotel and a ceramist, discuss the relationship of food and vessel, nature and art, in Japan’s culinary culture. Moderated by Harris Salat, freelance writer.  Followed by a reception.
