World Of Nobu: Seafood Brown Rice Paella, Matsuhisa LA

Previously, on tastingmenu.wordpress.com: * https://tastingmenu.wordpress.com/2012/10/29/nobu-style-paella-from-nobu-west/ I was recently leafing through World Of Nobu when I noticed Yasuhiko Homma’s contribution of the paella to the book (p. 104).  Previously, I’d made a version of this dish from Nobu West.   What I found interesting was Chef Homma’s approach in preparing this dish.   Unlike the way that I […]

Previously, on tastingmenu.wordpress.com – * https://tastingmenu.wordpress.com/2012/12/31/kikunois-komochi-ayusabasawara-with-sweetened-walnuts/ * https://tastingmenu.wordpress.com/2017/07/31/a-quick-note-on-hazelnuts/ So I wanted to do something for dessert this past weekend and my wife brought up the concept of bananas foster.  That got me thinking about requests on the web for Nobu’s Soy Caramel Bananas.  I found the online recipe at:  https://www.marthastewart.com/316455/chestnuts-in-soy-caramel which specified: 4 cups tightly […]

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) […]

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 […]
