YUM! YUM! and YUM! A few years ago I went to Japanese restaurant in Orlando with two of my colleagues (K & J) after we finished delivering a Super 35mm seminar and demonstrating the Sony F65 camera. We ordered edamame as an appetizer. Little did I know that this was no ordinary edamame. This was not your typical piping hot steamed and salty edamame. This edamame was hot, garlicky, and definitely had a nice kick. We finished the edamame and we scavenged for something to mop up the sauce that was left behind. I was determined to recreate these at home. It took a few tries but I did it!
