I'd like to second the suggestion for a Ginza Fish lunch outing - if there are enough of us, we can get a tatami room. How are these outings done? I'd be happy to arrange it - any weekday except Wednesday.
This episode of My Go-To Dish features Emilia Terragni, editorial director at Phaidon Press in London. Terragni was responsible for the first English translation of the renowned Italian cookbook The Silver Spoon. To make this simple pesto sauce, see the recipe here.
Michael Bulkowski's Go-To Lunch
This is a special episode of My Go-To Dish. Not only does it feature Michael Bulkowski, chef-owner of Revolver in Findlay, Ohio, but we also visit one of the best-known farms in the country: The Chef's Garden in Huron, Ohio. The Chef's Garden is an amazing place, as you'll see in the video. Bulkowski harvests some produce there, and then takes it home to make lunch. To make his go-to lunch your own, see the recipe.

This is an unusual installment of My Go-To Dish: Patricia actually creates a new salad for herself based on the ingredients she finds at San Francisco's Ferry Building. To make her go-to dish your own, see the recipe.
