Pheasant/Kiji/雉 rasied by Mr. Horiuchi/堀内 in Enshyu/遠州 and organic vegetables by Mr. Hirooka/広岡 in Mishima City/三島市

Mr. Touru Arima/有馬亨 has written his name all over the Prefecture for his extensive use of Shizuoka products. I have already introduced him many a time, so I will keep things easy this time as I intend only to publish and comment on photographs I took recently at his famed restaurant, Pisssenlit in Shizuoka City!

Here is the other side of the top picture showing the organic vegetables grown by mr. Hirooka In Mishima City.
The sauce is basically a cognac brandy cream sauce. The flesh of the pheasant was so tender and superlative!

This three-colored vegetable terrine was made with organic carrots and spinach and non-organic mushrooms, all from Shizuoka Prefecture!
Healthy and so tasty!

Anago/Conger Eel/穴子 terrine.
The conger eel are from Shizuoka Prefecture as well the the lettuce and tomatoes. The whole terrine was wrapped into Italian pancetta bacon. A east and West marriage?

Ezo Shika/Venison from Hokkaido/エゾ鹿 in wine sauce and organic vegetables.
Although the succulent Ezo Shika/venison was from the island of Hokkaido and the was was mainly made with red wine from France, the vegetables are all organic vegetables by Mr. Hirooka in Mishima City!

For a better view of the organic vegetables!

Usuiton Pork/湧水豚 from Fujinomiya City/富士宮市 roasted in Dijon Mustard with Cheese and organic vegetables.
Shizuoka Prefecture is becoming famous for some truly extravagant pork. I already have tasted at least 3 kinds of prime pork produced in the Prefecture!

Organic vegetables Pasta!
Although Mr. Arima’s cuisine is basically French, this Italian-inpsired pasta in cream sauce with a host of beautiful organic vegetables has become a specialty of his!

Don’t worry, this is far from being the end!

  1. Beautiful!
    Shizuoka Gourmet – (or Robert-Giles)
    I’ve been scouring your posts, and enjoying them. I get to go to Tokyo for a week!!!! As things are EVER changing in food, I would appreciate the 2 places in Tokyo I must eat, or the 2 places in Japan I must eat. I’ve done Paris Subways, so the modern Japanese Public transport holds little worry for me. I’m willing to have adventures.
    Sadly I had to withdraw from FoodBuzz for the now… but really enjoyed your posts from there as well!

    Many Thanks,

    Greta Hardin

    PS will be travelling with my Japanese obsessed 8 yr old. He’s been eating japanese food since before he could say “udon.”
