On Soba Broths/Dipping Sauces

Recently, my wife asked about making a soba soup for lunch one day.  On thinking about the problem, I thought about the times I had nabeyaki udon at restaurants.  If memory serves (with respect to Chairman Kaga), it seems that the versions of nabeyaki udon that I preferred were savory and not sweet.  This occurred […]

Revisiting a sherry vinegar recipe

Previously, on tastingmenu.wordpress.com – * https://tastingmenu.wordpress.com/2013/04/18/mackerel-shioyaki-and-vegetable-salad-from-nobu-west/ While watching a recent episode of ATK’s called New England Classics, a taste test of sherry vinegars was featured: https://www.americastestkitchen.com/taste_tests/1674-sherry-vinegar I was intrigued since I’d made a Nobu West dish Mackerel ‘Shio-yaki’ And Vegetable Salad a while back and wondered how it would taste given a reviewed sherry vinegar.

Sometimes, I just want a doughnut: Nobu West’s Chocolate Satandagi

As I was growing up, I remember having Dunkin Donuts Chocolate  (Butter)Creme Filled Donuts. Well over the last couple of years, I hadn’t been able to find them. I resigned myself to the fact that they weren’t ever coming back.  Dunkin’s had ‘officially’ discontinued them ( http://www.birdchick.com/blog/2007/02/dunkin-donuts-broke-my-heart?rq=donuts ) around 2007.  Last holiday season, I *was* […]

So, I was thinking about what to make for my folks during Christmas break. While browsing the Nobu New Year’s Eve menus for 2014, I came across an item at Nobu Dallas – hamachi with ginger salsa.  Granted, the dish was no […]

Shabu Shabu

When I was growing up, my folks would occasionally have sukiyaki and shabu shabu at home.  With the bad weather this past weekend, my wife suggested it might be nice if we did a shabu shabu for dinner.  This is what she had in mind: But a shabu shabu isn’t complete without dipping sauces.  I […]
