i don’t cook. in the way that i don’t sing karaoke, ever, even in japan. however this does not stop me from thinking that I can or will cook one day.
i came across this “cool stuff that I need” in the blogosphere the other day. hip design company Alessi has recently collaborated with the national palace museum of taiwan to produce some kitchen implements which represent imperial chinese figures.
if i owned some of these items i could be convinced to actually use cookbooks for their recipes, not just looking at the nice pictures. i have had some new library chinese cookbooks out for about a month and they just sit on my coffee table. i randomly flick through the pages and look at the dumplings.
you can buy them from amazon.
