I must be extremely hungry this week because most of the links I’ve gathered seem to be about food…oh well! 😉 A bit late this week, but Happy Thursday!
Maybe I should blame the book I’m currently reading, Ann Mah’s new novel, “Mastering the Art of French Eating: Lessons in Food and Love From a Year in Paris” (a clever play on Julia Child’s quintessential cookbook title). I’m enjoying reading all about Mah’s delightful adventures in learning the origins of French cuisine. — Amazon

I cannot BEAR these super adorable donuts from Japan — Rocket News
Japan always knows how to do design and innovation best. Check out this amazing office building where a corporate setting is totally transformed by the presence of in-office, urban farming facilities. The space is complete with 200 species of fruit, vegetables and rice which are maintained and harvested by office workers. The produce eventually ends up in the office cafeteria. — Spoon Tamago
