Previously, on tastingmenu.wordpress.com – * https://tastingmenu.wordpress.com/2012/05/22/finding-arima-sansho/ Thank you to Sakanaya in Allston, MA and to Yoshi Kawamura for getting this ingredient to me in a timely way! Now to schedule time to make Iron Chef Michiba’s “Beef With Lotus Root, Snow Peas And Arima Sansho”. And of course, I’m going to have to find time […]

Since now I was doing the anniversary meal on the weekend, I thought it might be nice to see if I could do a multi-course menu for […]
So I thought I try to add another skill to my bag of tricks in the kitchen. I’ve never made sushi before, so I thought I might start on at least trying to make sushi rice (aka shari). In Nobu: The Cookbook, the recipe size seemed to make an awful lot of sushi rice, more […]
I recently saw an offering from Iron Chef Michiba which could be best described as wagyu beef, lotus root (aka renkon), snow peas with arima sansho in sukiyaki sauce.

But to begin the meal, I thought I’d try and execute an appetizer from Nobu Perth (since it seemed […]

We had chinese eggplant (“nasu” in Japanese). So I thought “great! I’ve got kinzanji moromi miso, so why not do the very first recipe from Nobu Miami: The Party Cookbook […]
Previously, on tastingmenu.wordpress.com – * https://tastingmenu.wordpress.com/2012/03/27/baked-cabbage-nobu-style/ As you may recall, I couldn’t get truffle salt for this dish.
