Iron Chef Morimoto is serving up recipes to aid his Japanese homeland in Keep Recipes for Recovery, a 21-recipe cookbook filled with Japanese classics, fusions, haute cuisine and more. Donations start at just $10 –proceeds will go to The American Red Cross to help Japan recover from the devastation of the recent earth quake and tsunami. Last month, Chef Morimoto made his singing debut at The Thousand Hearts benefit concert to raise funds and awareness for the survivors of the tragedy. You can still donate to the benefit through Thousandhearts.org and see his vocal performance on YouTube.

You’re our fans. Or you like us — whatever Facebook is calling it these days, we want you to know that we like you back. And we’re huge fans of the fabulous food photos you post on our wall. Take Layla’s Vegetarian Sushi, for example. It looks incredibly delicious (reminds us a bit of the veggie sushi Chef Morimoto created for Food Network Magazine) and we love her step-by-step instructions on her website.
Way to go, Layla. You rock. Keep sharing, we’re hungry for more.

When it comes to major conventions and trade shows, the music industry has South By Southwest, the publishing industry has Book Expo America, the comics industry has ComiCon, and then the housewares industry has the International Home and Housewares Show, held in Chicago every March. It’s the nexus for everything new and cool in the housewares industry, which includes everything from kitchen products to bedding to cleaners. For Food Network purposes, of course, I stuck to the kitchen side of the show.
