It takes a village … to do a photo shoot. Here we are at the end of a photography session with Playboy Magazine Japan. The magazine is doing a 5 page spread on the new Japanese edition of the barbecue book. In the foreground left to right you’ll see grilled bananas, beer can chicken, grilled tofu with miso barbecue sauce, barbecued cabbage, grilled garlic bread, and smoke tomato gapzacho. This is one experience that wasn’t lost in translation. Everyone understands barbecue!
