How to make epic pancakes with your Japanese rice cooker Every summer, I try to spend as many days as possible on the beach at Enoshima, and each time I get out of the station and walk towards the sand, I pass a long line of people waiting for a seat at the local pancake restaurant. This isn’t Japan’s only pancake joint with a lengthy wait, either, as you can find similar eateries with comparable lines in Tokyo, too. It used to strike me as a little weird. After all, whipping up a stack of pancakes isn’t exactly the most challenging culinary feat. Manila Spoon: Green Tea White Chocolate Cheesecake I am a huge tea lover. I drink tea a few times a day.

Avocado Toasts with Eggs & Sriracha Weather: 43 degrees, completely clear What I’m listening to: Farther Along, Josh Garrels My go-to breakfast for quite a while now has been one sunny side up egg with slices of ripe avocado and Sriracha on top. Three of my favorite ingredients in one protein-rich power breakfast. I eat it probably two to three times a week, as long as I have ripe avocados on hand.

The Disposable Project: Tanzanian children get behind the lens The Disposable Project was started by Raul Guerrero in 2011 when he handed over 100 throwaway cameras to nine children in a village near Moshi in Tanzania. Collaborating with the Microsoft initiative Born to Learn, a programme that helps educate disadvantaged youth, Guerrero offered students basic photography skills and developed ways for them to share their stories by documenting their everyday experiences. How did the idea emerge? Being a long time photographer/visual artist prior to this project, the idea to approach photography differently with this opportunity came to me a bit before my visit to Tanzania. Rather than playing the role of the traditional observer, documenting my own personal experience and stories from behind the lens, I wanted to share my passion for photography with the community I was going to be working with in a way that would lead to rewarding and memorable interactions. What kind of photographic guidance, if any, did you give to the children?
Mashed potato egg boats Inspired by another Shopsin's menu item, 'potato egg boats', Dana and I also made our own version, but with mashed potatoes I had in the fridge and a popover pan.

Human beings inherit many genetic traits directly from their parents. However, cultural traits – tools, beliefs and behaviors that are transmitted by learning – can be passed on not only by parents but also teachers and peers. Many animals have learned behaviors, but people are uniquely good at building on existing knowledge to innovate further. This capacity, known as cumulative culture, was captured by Sir Isaac Newton when he said, “If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.”
