Welcome to another episode of the Food Origins Podcast!
This podcast is dedicated to our Mother, Yuriko who passed away in 2019.
I was fortunate enough to sit down with my one and only sibling; my brother Michael Sands. Mike is a self-employed web developer and an accomplished martial artist in the styles of Kuk Sool Won, Judo and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
Before settling in his now hometown of San Diego, we were born and raised in San Francisco, California. Mike spent many years traveling all over the world including a year in Japan. We discuss what is was like growing up mixed race Japanese/Caucasian , bullying and Asian hate regarding food and some of the dishes our Mother used to make for our family, friends, neighbors and school.
We also spoke about some of Mike's traveling destinations that include Europe & Southeast Asia , monkeys stealing your food and working in the bustling restaurants of Los Angeles. Featured are some of Mike's favorite local San Diego restaurants and his favorite recipe for Short Ribs.
