Dear Mezzaluna & Mike
thanks for your note, sorry for the late reply, as I just returned from a lazy week in Guam
Well - I am working here in tokyo at the Hilton as Exec.Sous Chef.
looking after all the Western Food Production and doing many many Promotions here.
In fact, Mezzaluna, I have met 2 Iron Chefs, realy nice guys, the only problem, they don't speak english ( and no Swiss too.....)
to you mike, never heard of your friend James, as tokyo is just too big and has many expats. Besides, it doesn't take much here to get carried away with party, drinking etc ( as long as you have the $$$$) as this place is steaming....trust me
so - for now
