Ingredient Alert: New Zealand Lamb

When it comes to lamb, my wife and I have found we prefer having the New Zealand lamb variety after having it at the Nobu/Matsuhisa restaurants and then doing Nobu-style lamb at home.   As it would so happen, Marty’s at Newtonville, MA has mentioned that it is currently carrying (and will for the foreseeable future) […]

A quick note on tosazu

…cooking is most about giving my customers little surprises that will lead them to make discovery about their own latent tastes.                                                                     -Nobu Matsuhisa, Nobu: The Cookbook, p. 10 So my wife and I were discussing what to make for tonight’s dinner and she suggested hamachi with a thought to hamachi kama.  However, the notion of […]

Nobu Rosemary Miso

So I came across this the other day: https://www.dmagazine.com/food-drink/2010/12/if-you-cant-get-to-nobu-try-chef-rasos-lamb-recipe-at-home/ I was intrigued to try this over Labor Day weekend since I’d seen this on the Nobu menus (and associated with lamb and prime rib [Nobu Manila]) for the last several years.  But looking at the rosemary miso recipe seemed rather unwieldy for a home cook […]

Thinking about watercress

Previously, on tastingmenu.wordpress.com – * https://tastingmenu.wordpress.com/2016/01/25/watercress-appetizer-soup/ * https://tastingmenu.wordpress.com/2011/12/16/lobster-and-nobu-watercress-dressing/ * https://tastingmenu.wordpress.com/2011/07/28/ron-siegels-salmon-on-shrimp-ravioli-watercress-puree-and-espelette-oil/ I recently caught an on-demand viewing of Iron Chef Gauntlet.  In the cook-off portion of the episode, one of the items presented was spanish mackerel with parsley/tarragon puree.  This made me run to my copy of The Flavor Bible.  Upon inspection, parsley wasn’t the only […]

Nobu Style Oven Roasted Portobello/Shiitake/Himematsutake

So for this past Tuesday, my wife and I were trying to come up with a quick simple dinner. We settled on flaked salmon fried rice with spinach and corn.  Yet, there was something lacking.  After some thought, we scoured Nobu’s Vegetarian Cookbook and decided on his Oven-Roasted Portobello With Wasabi Salsa (p. 84).  Unfortunately, […]
