My local fish monger & Spaghetti alle vongole

Ti piace gli spaghetti alle vongole?

December has arrived.. I can’t believe that it has been almost 4 months since I blogged my first entry here.. What a shame.. I have to keep it up. A bit like regular piano practice, isn’ it?

I had a telephone interview from Croydon Advertiser yesterday morning. The Art editor Patsy was so lovely and friendly that I felt almost like talking to my friend.  I discovered that she was from Sydenahm/Crystal Palace where I live originally so it was very interesting to hear about how her father used to tell her about the  Great Fire that destroyed the palace in Crystal Palace Park in 1936. For those not familiar with the history of Crystal Palace I will talk about it soon here.   I am so lucky to live just by such a historically (and musically too) site.Moxon's

For Japanese girl like me I am sooo blessed that there are two fantastic fishmongers in my neighborhood. Yesterday I went to the one  in Dulwich called Moxon’s.  I think this is one of the best fishmonger in London seriously. They can tell you which fish you can have it as carpaccio or sashimi too. Very handy!

I wanted to recreate a wonderful spaghetti vongole that I tasted back in summer in Italy. I slowly roasted tomatoes in oven for about 45 mins so that it bring out the sweetness.

Yum yum delizioso!

After my supper went back to piano and worked on my old friends Mendelssohn’s Song without Words Op.53. Revisiting old pieces is like meeting up with an old friend. So much to talk about. Perfect way to spend a chilly night like today perhaps..
