Otaku Kyoto

Tokyo, of course, is known for its Anime, Manga, pop culture -- but what about Kyoto? When I toted my Anime-loving daughter along to Kyoto, I was worried that she would simply hang out at the AirBNB which, largely, she did. But we did find some loosely "Otaku" things to do in Kyoto (my daughter's objection to the term duly noted).

Instant Pot Clams Bordelaise

This recipe was inspired by many things: digging clams in the Pacific Northwest and a recipe from the Frugal Gourmet cookbook, the mussels I ate in a restaurant on Loch Linnhe in Scotland (I haven't quite approached their amazingness), French Clams Bordelaise. Fortunately steaming shellfish with wine is easy; it's now made even easier by the Instant Pot!
