King Midas’ ice cream

Last October we visited Kanazawa, and one of the things that I wanted to do before we left was eat their gold-leaf soft-serve ice cream! Partly for the hell of it, but also because WHAT DOES GOLD TASTE LIKE? was the predominate question upon my mind. Although I failed to accomplish my mission last year…

spinach and pesto ravioli with kale
