To travel around Shikoku, Japan’s southernmost island, is to discover the Japan that existed long before neon signs, mini computers and conveyor-belt sushi. It was here I had my first taste of kamaboko, a fish paste so superior that it even tasted delicious at the crack of dawn. It was also my first serious encounter with udon noodles, the proudest product of Kagawa, on the northern coast. This is my homage to these two wonderful creations.
