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 […]

On Cooking OToro/Toro

Previously, on tastingmenu.wordpress.com – * https://tastingmenu.wordpress.com/2011/02/17/ny-strip-with-nishino-red-wine-soy-reduction * https://tastingmenu.wordpress.com/2011/05/27/nobu-engagement-anniversary-dinner-at-home Recently, Food Network aired an episode of Chopped (“Cleaver Fever”) where the appetizer round featured tuna belly (was it otoro or toro?  It looked like otoro to me).   During the appetizer preparation, one of the cheftestants commented that cooking the tuna belly could risk turning it into  […]

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 […]
