Wasabi Fans, Do you know the feeling when somebody tells you that the thing you've created excites them? Well it's a rhetorical question, but please indulge me while I tell you how it feels to me. It's the primary reason I do this. Providing something that brings people pleasure on so many levels: the obvious palette pleasure, the pleasure of something new (for many), the pleasure of fond memories (for some), and the pleasure of helping others refine their art (cooking in this case).

Few other things in life feel that good.
