Being that some of us on staff just got back from Japan, and one of those staff members quite enjoying a few different varieties of sake, this trailer for "The Birth of Saké" loooks very appealing (not to mention beautiful). ItsNiceThat reports that director Erik Shirai "went to live among the workers at the 144-year-old Yoshida Brewery in northern Japan during the gruelling six month stints during which the 2000-year-old brewing process takes place." Watch the trailer!

The last time I went to a Japanese restaurant, I didn't get a chance to play with my daikon radishes. Sometimes I make a little mini snowman with my radishes while I eat my California roll. Masanori Kono has turned played with food into an art, so much so that it will make you feel guilty eating a daikon radish panda bear.

In addition to art, we occasionally like to let you know about food we're excited about. California Taco Bear is a taco truck with a twist. They don't do traditional tacos, but do a range of everything from BBQ pulled pork and buffalo chicken mozzarella to more upscale duck, short ribs and ahi poke tacos. If you're in the LA area be sure to check it out.

Do you like to color coordinate your clothes, shoes, art supplies, or pantry? Well what if you color coordinated your meals? Eating just green or purple colored food sounds weird, almost repulsive.
