Kon-ni-chi-wa- After a recent trip to Japan, Andrew and I have taken some inspiration from the flavours and tastes of the Japanese. Food is an art form and even the simplest dishes are prepared by chefs in such a meticulous manor. Eating out in Japan is as much about the experience as the food!!
The people are so polite and friendly, nobody Jay walks (a bad habit of mine) and every one waits in line patiently. We were lucky enough to see the beautiful cherry blossoms and the gardens that they are surrounded by, steeped in Japan’s history.
We really enjoyed a cooking class while we were at the famous “Fish Market” just outside of Toyko. The Tsukiji Market is one of the largest fish markets in the world – trading around 2000 tonnes of seafood a day. The outer market comprises of hundreds of food stalls and restaurants. The vibrancy of the produce and aromas are tantalizing to the taste buds.
We have incorporated this Summer a Japanese inspired Menu on our function menu for those who have the same love of the Japanese food as we do. See the function page on our web site for a copy of this. And when you finish a great meal in Japan it is a custom to say to your host “ Go-shi-so-summer” and they will be delighted! Sa-yo-na-ea
