There's much more to Japanese food than raw fish. Hiroyuki "Zama" Tanaka is determined to make that point at his new CoZara in University City, where he's skipped the sushi bar and fired up the grill and deep-fryer to conjure some of his favorite homeland comforts for an izakaya-style gastropub.
On Sunday we headed off to Conte Farms in Tabernacle, Burlington County, for our annual blueberry-picking fest. It doesn't take long to fill those buckets - we collected 10 pounds in an hour, which at $2.50 a pound was a pretty good deal for berries so fresh . . . I find Conte's fruit reliably great every year, and it's a wonderful family ritual.
