Ahh, who doesn't love the beginning of spring? The sunshine, the smiling New Yorkers, the smells of delicious foods wafting out of open windows...
Alright, so I'm a little hungry. And j-CATION's still over two weeks away! But lucky for me, one of our favorite chefs Harris Salat of The Japanese Food Report is calling for recipe testers for his upcoming cookbook entitled "The Japanese Grill."
What does this mean? As a recipe tester, you'll be sent grilling recipes along with a response form. You'll cook them, and tell them what you think. Do the instructions work for you? Did the dish turn out delicious? (But, of course.) Anything confusing or unclear? No prior recipe testing experience required. All you need is a standard outdoor charcoal or gas grill (a Weber is perfect). They're looking for enthusiastic home cooks who hunger (so to speak) to learn more about Japanese cuisine and grilling.
Speaking of gastronomic activities, the events and features of j-CATION are now listed on the webpage!
