Previously, on tastingmenu.wordpress.com – * https://tastingmenu.wordpress.com/2020/07/12/nobu-bento-box-chocolate-souffles-for-2/ So I finally made the attempt to substitute roasted kabocha for the chocolate in the recipe.  I roasted a 4 lb vertically split kabocha pumpkin at 450 degrees F for 1 hour 20 minutes (no oil, no seasoning).  Once it cooled to room temperature, I scooped out the yellow/orange […]

Nobu Bento Box Chocolate Souffles For 2

I have been asked by some friends why I have been making a number of desserts recently since dessert making is not my strength. Truth be told, I like having treats to finish a meal when going out to dinner.  Obviously going out to dinner hasn’t really been possible since 13 Mar 2020 and the […]

‘Boiled’ Anago/Sawara, Nobu-Style

Previously, on tastingmenu.wordpress.com – * https://tastingmenu.wordpress.com/2016/04/09/nobu-hakuni-style-simmered-anagosawara/ Today was a very warm fall day and I was thinking about wanting to have una-don for dinner. Unfortunately, I didn’t have any store bought unagi.  I did have a nice large sawara fillet.  Remembering how I prepared sawara hakuni-style, I thought I could prepare the sawara fillet using […]

Sake Kawa Yaki (Crispy Salmon Skin)

Previously, on tastingmenu.wordpress.com – * https://tastingmenu.wordpress.com/2012/10/16/tori-kawa-yaki-grilled-crispy-chicken-skin/ Sometimes when we get a nice piece of salmon fillet, before I portion it (if the recipe calls for a skinless fillet), *I* will take the skin off and reserve it for making crispy salmon skin.  Usually, I use it for making onigiri.  Additionally, the Nobu cookbooks have a […]

Nobu Scampi/Langoustine With Spicy Lemon Garlic Sauce

I’d been dreaming about making this dish for years since I’d gotten Nobu: The Cookbook (pgs 50, 51, 172).  While I’ve regularly been making things like shrimp/lobster with spicy lemon dressing, it was only yesterday (20 Jan 2017), that I’d discovered that Eataly Boston’s Pescheria@Prudential Center had fresh live langoustines.  Vinny at the Pescheria counter […]
