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 […]

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 […]
