  1. Zed,

    Thanks for stopping by. The Shiitake mushrooms were not just good but good for you. It’s really hard to find a niche market like that.

    The Pig Iron Chef looks interesting and anything that pays homage to Japanese cuisine is alright in my book!

  2. Your egg salad recipe looks really good to me. I may try it myself this weekend.

    No shiitake soup? I’m sorry you had to discontinue that. I’ve never tasted a shiitake, but a few well-known chefs have been encouraging me to try them.

    I like your site. :)

    If the two of you would be interested in competing on the upcoming “Pig Iron Chef” series here in Little Rock, let me know. You already have my respect.
