Unforgettable day spent yesterday in scorching heat with @nancyhachisu and Mami-San from Yamaki Jozo. Yamaki which has been ran by the same family for more than a century makes 100% certified organic shoyu that is delicate and balanced. Everything else made there such as miso, tofu or natto is equally delicious. We met Nancy a few months back at Mokonuts and it was great to finally see her in her home environment. Aside from being an amazing cookbook author, Nancy’s commitment to her community is inspirational to say the least and she’s been doing this for 20+ years!
Incredibly sweet cockles from JP in Batz sur Mer with chermoula and fennel flowers. Merci @ichtus_fr !
So much fun yesterday cooking with our new friends @simonandthewhale in NYC. This was the third dinner installment of the neighborhood series organized by @resy and @gabestulman and his team. Cooking in NY is dear to our heart since we called this city home for almost 15 years. Thanks to all for making this happen, this surely was a sweet homecoming for us! And very special thanks to Gabe and crew, for being such amazing hosts!

A real honor to be featured in the New York Times today!! Thank you @clarkbar for the great write up and for believing in what we do!
Pisello nano di zollino. A new delicious legume from Puglia we discovered this year. Not quite chickpea, green pea or split pea but the best of all three at the same time! It is here cooked with an octopus broth, broccoli leaves and bergamot and it kicks ass! @hettydevogel
Thank you New Orleans for briefly welcoming us into your family. @masonhereford @turkeyandthewolf @s.torres13 @criollomezcal @billoffare @dennyculbert Thanks for taking care of the mokonuts family and for the fun times. We loved it and can't wait for our next culinary adventure. See u soon in Paris guys ❤️ Mokonuts is back to normal business Monday November 5th.
Mokonuts will be closed all week this week. We will reopen on Nov 5th. Until then we'll be eating lots snowballs and gumbos. And.....We're also cooking lunch on Tuesday with our buddy Mason Hereford @turkeyandthewolf And it's going to be awesome!
14 years ago, driving along US 1 on our way to the Muir Woods National Monument, I stopped the car and asked Moko if she'd marry me. That very same night, we celebrated and had a most memorable dinner at Chez Panisse in Berkeley. Never in our lifetime would we have thought that we'd cook for Alice Waters one day! Thank you @leventrelibre for making this happen and above all thank you @alicelouisewaters for leading the way and being such an inspiration for us and so many cooks worldwide.
