I learned about quickbreads with the cooking minclass I gave for boys at St. Mary's International School in Tokyo. I haven't looked back twice. I think we cooked apple-nut concoction in paper cups--was that in the microwave. I remember John, the nephew of Hugh Hefner, blond and freckles. He wanted to cook real bread.

I have taught at International Schools since 1974 from Sapporo and Tokyo to Rangoon, from Dongdukchon to Medan, from Bangkok to Beijing. I currently teach high school literature and theory of knowledge at Nagoya International School.
I have three children in their twenties and two white cats. If I could, I would buy a cottage in the west of Ireland and retire there. I spend my vacations in Chicago where two of my children live in a friendly city that manages to fascinate this longtime expatriate.
