On Dobinmushi

Previously, on tastingmenu.wordpress.com – * https://tastingmenu.wordpress.com/2011/01/01/on-suimono/ It occurred to me that dobinmushi is about how you make the soup for the dish. It was clear to me that after examining Matsuhisa-sama’s Nobu Now (p 94), Iron Chef Morimoto’s The New Art Of Japanese Cooking (p. 89) and Nishino-san’s Autumn Omakase (p. 28-32) that the template […]

Thanksgiving Omakase At Home 2017

Previously, on tastingmenu.wordpress.com * https://tastingmenu.wordpress.com/2017/11/17/planning-thanksgiving-menu-2017/ …what’s a planned holiday meal without a few surprises….So when I arrived at the house, I got told that there was a preference for scallops instead of the nobashi ebiyaki and perhaps ginger ice cream instead of vanilla.  So quickly thinking, I decided on the Nobu Scallop/Corn ‘salad’ and swapping […]

Nishino Wasabi Cream

Previously, on tastingmenu.wordpress.com – * https://tastingmenu.wordpress.com/2016/07/03/thinking-about-a-scallop-appetizer-from-yoshihiro-murata/ I’ve been looking at Tatsu Nishino’s scallop appetizer from his Autumn Omakase e-book for quite some time now. I’d been wanting to try it but figured I really needed to get my hands on REAL wasabi in order to do it justice.  Additionally, I’d been thinking of coming up […]

Nishino Hamachi With Balsamic Teriyaki

Previously, on tastingmenu.wordpress.com – * https://tastingmenu.wordpress.com/2011/02/17/ny-strip-with-nishino-red-wine-soy-reduction/ I thought I’d do another Nishino dish this weekend for dinner.  Looking over Nishino’s Autumn Omakase internet book (see: http://www.tastingmenu.com/autumnomakase/B889FA42C4E021AAEE978D1/Autumn%20Omakase%20from%20Tatsu%20Nishino%20and%20tastingmenu.publishing.pdf ), I thought I’d try doing his yellowtail with balsamic teriyaki.  Actually, the name of the dish is a little bit of misnomer, since it’s yellowtail teriyaki on braised […]

Superbowl Sunday Dinner

Previously, on tastingmenu.wordpress.com – * https://tastingmenu.wordpress.com/2011/01/01/on-suimono/ * https://tastingmenu.wordpress.com/2010/12/13/toban-yaki-nobu-style/ So my wife asked me to do another tobanyaki dinner for Superbowl Sunday.  So instead of salmon, I chose to do a steak version.  But a tobanyaki dish by itself didn’t quite seem to fit the occasion so I thought I’d add a few more courses for […]
