Gastronomic Study Group: Kakishima Rainbow Trout and Japanese Char by Wasabi no Kai Group

Wasabi no Kai Gastronomic Group in Central Shizuoka Prefecture was founded about 4 months ago to help promote the Shizuoka Gastronomy with chefs, producers and the media.
We have already held a seminar on Shizuoka Green Tea and visited Kakishima Fish Farm in Fujinomiya City in July and August.
This time three chefs members of Wasabi No Kai Group met at Il Castagno Italian Restaurant in Shizuoka City to demonstrate various ways and methods of cooking Rainbow Trout and Japanese Char/Iwana from Kakishima Farm!

Chef Kenji Inami/稲見謙司さん at Il Castagno Italian Restaurant in Shizuoka City.

Camera-Shy Chef Takeshi Sugiyama/杉山猛さん at Hoteiya Spanish Restaurant in Shizuoka City.

Chef Masahiro Onoda/小野田正浩さんat Caravin French Restaurant in Shizuoka City.

Inside the kitchen!

Taking a sneak peek at the Japanese char!

A magician’s lair!

Taking shape!

The advantage of a photographer/writer is that he/she has first pick at the information and an open door inside the kitchen!

Almost ready!

An eager audience patiently waiting for the creations to come out of the kitchen!
Now, what did we have the pleasure to savor?

Marinated Japanese char by Chef Onoda!
The fish was marinated in salt, soy sauce and mirin at 40 degrees Celsius inside an air-tight pack.
The bottom piece on the left is the same covered with golden and black sesame seeds.

Japanese char smoked with salt and sugar and served with olive oil by Chef Sugiyama!

Japanese char brandade seared under a salamander by Chef Onoda!

Japanese char with home-made cocoa parpadelle and organic vegetables by Chef Inami!
The cocoa powder parpadelle was a discovery!

Rainbow trout with home-made Taglionni and organic vegetables by Chef Inami!

Rainbow trout, Serrano ham and mushrooms risotto by Chef Sugiyama!
If I had to choose one dish, this was the one!

Japanese char poached with its skin, paprika and fresh cepe/porcini in wine, stock and cream sauce by Chef Onoda!

All these local celebrities certainly enjoyed a long talk during and after the demonstration!

The next event will be a visit to a local sake brewery!

Sake Brewery Tours

Sake Brewery Tours are 5-day excursions into the world of sake brewing, drinking, and enjoyment, featuring an exclusive seminar with respected expert and author, Mr. John Gauntner. Tour of the breweries and dinners with the brewers truly open doors to the new insights to the brewing tradition. Enjoy sumptuous cuisine, luxurious yet quiet
relaxing time at hot springs, and excursions to fantastic cultural highlights.

In 2013, our special excursions take you to experience the best of the snow country in Akita, and to really immerse yourself in the ancient capitals of Japan in the Kansai region.

Register before November 30, 2012 and mention Shizuoka Gourmet to get a special discount.

Akita: February 23 – 27, 2013 (Saturday – Wednesday) 4 nights/5 days
Take this opportunity to enjoy the best of the snow country, Akita.
Meet the sake brewers, savor simple inaka-style Akita cuisine, and soak in onsen. Some very memorable experiences you will find only with us are: a visit to a brewer’s private historic estate; hands-on soba
making experience at a historic sake brewery; memorable private music performance; and more. On the last day, simply relax at the rustic hot springs in the deep snow far away from the city.
Breweries: (Yuki no Bosha, Ama no To, Mansaku no Haha/Manabito, Kariho)
Get Details: http://www.saketours.com/akita2013.html

Kansai: (Kyoto, Nara, Shiga) March 4 – 8, 2013 (Monday – Friday) 5 nights/5 days

Explore historic small towns most people have never heard of!
In addition to a chance to visit sake breweries during the brewing season, our special excursions include: a taste of three culinary traditions that are very close, yet, distinctive to each area; sake vessel seminar with Robert Yellin and visits to pottery studios; a different view of Japan’s spiritual backbone through the sacred Goma

Shizuoka Sake Tasting: Oomuraya Brewery-Wakatake-Oni Otome Sachi-Tokubetsu Junmai

Oumuraya Brewery in Shimada City has been long famed for its “Oni Goroshi/Kill the Goblin” sake brand.
This year they felt that Oni/Goblins should not be confined to males only!
So they came with cute “Oni-Otome/Lady Goblin” series obviously to kill the sake lovers!
This the third one actually, brown color after the previous pink and blue labels. A fourth white label will appear next winter!

Incidentally “Sachi” means “Dry” in this case!

Rice milled down to 60%
Alcohol: 15~16 degrees
Dryness: 1
Acidity: 1.3
Amino acids: 1.2
Bottled in September 2012

Clarity: Very clear
Color: Very faint golden hue
Aroma: Discreet, fleeting. Pineapple, oranges
Body: Fluid
Taste: Dry and fruity attack backed up with alcohol and junmai petillant
Lingers for a while getting even drier with pleasant alcohol warming up the back of the palate.
Complex and fruity.
Almonds, dark chocolate, macadamia nuts followed by drier almonds and faint coffee beans.
For all its sweetish start as indicated + 1 level, the transition to dryness is very accentuated and lasting.
Changes little with food. except with a little rise in sweetness with more coffee beans appearing.
Drinks easily with any food.
Tends to become more complex just after food with new facets.

Overall: A great sake to enjoy with any food, especially izakaya gastronomy.
Changes little with food.
Very pleasurable on its own.
Another sake fit for any food or party.

Kill me with love and sake!

Shizuoka Sake Tasting: Suruga Brewery-Tenko-Choo Karakuchi Natsu Ki Gentei Genshu + 21

Suruga Brewery in Shizuoka City like some other breweries in Shizuoka Prefecture tends to come up with limited brews with very long names!
Tenko is the name of Suruga Brewery’s main brand.
“Choo Karakuchi” means it is a very dry sake.
“Natsu Ki Gentei” stands for “limited Summer Brew”.

Now “Genshu” means a sake to which no pure water was not blended.
Since it is also a junmai, no pure rice alcohol was added either.
“+21” stands for the dryness level.
Extremely dry, indeed!

Rice: Biyama Nishiki
Rice milled down to 55%
Yeast: Association No 901
Alcohol: 19~20 degrees
Dryness: + 21
Acidity: 2.7
Bottled in June 2012

Clarity: Very clear
Color: very light golden hue
Body: fluid, sirupy
Aroma: Strong and complex. Alcohol. Dry. Fruity: banana
Taste: Strong attack backed up by puissant junmai petillant, very dry at first, then smooth and sirupy in spite of its dryness.
Complex. Banana, almonds, macadamia nuts.
Lingers for a short while with a lot of junmai petillant with almonds lurking on the palate.
Changes very little with food.

Overall: A very dry sake, indeed, although not as aggressive as expected thanks to its complexity.
Marries perfectly with any food, even sushi!
Another sake I would take to nay house party or BBQ!

French Gastronomy: Lunch at Hana Hana (2012 Fall) in Shizuoka City!

Seared Foie Gras in black truffles sauce on Porcini risotto!

Service: Very friendly and easy-going
Facilities & Equipment: Very clean overall. large superb washroom
Prices: Reasonable
Strong points: Typical French, Southern French and Italian Fusion gastronomy. Great products. Excellent wine list.

I have known ever so laughing Chef Jirou Hanabata/花畑次郎さん for what seems like an eternity.
It was such a pleasure to meet him again in his cosy restaurant Hana Hana in Aoi Ku, Shizuoka City!

Such a simple and welcoming facade and entrance!

The walls inside are decorated with paintings of Southern France and signed by all kinds of people!

The kitchen and his magician!

A small private corner near the kitchen!

Choose your table according to your priorities!
I usually take one by the bay windows!

Jiro’s cuisine is a happy singing mixture of French, especially Southern, and Italian homey gastronomy.
Generous and so reasonably-priced!
For that long overdue lunch I started with chilled seasonal kabocha vichyssoise soup!

A typical Southern French starter: poelee/sauteed scallops salad!

Enormous scallops cooked to perfection!

Plenty of local vegetables for beautiful balance and colorful design!

The star of the day featured a traditional marriage of French and Italian gastronomies: Sauteed Foie Gras in black truffle sauce atop Porcini mushrooms risotto!

Blast the calories! The foie gras was sauteed to a sublimely unctuous extravagance accentuated by the black truffle (plenty of them) sauce!

The lightly baked risotto! All Italy for you!

Another French classic: Cotes d’Agneau/Lamb cutlets!

So tender and beautifully supported by its deglasse sauce made up of the cutlets juices, Madeira and a touch of butter!

Simple but perfect accompaniment: Southern French Ratatouille!

And at last one of Jiro’s simple but so delicious desserts!

Peach compote and home-made raspberry ice-cream!

Important detail: Coffee as it should always be served, even for lunch!

Looking forward to visit the place again when the weather gets colder to warm myself up!

Italian Restaurant: Autumn Lunch (2012) at Aquavite in Shizuoka City!

Service: Excellent and very friendly
Facilities: Great cleanliness overall. Small but beautiful washroom
Prices: Reasonable to expensive.
Strong points: Great use of local products, especially organic vegetables. Top-class Italian wines. Private room for~8 people

It was about time I paid a long overdue visit for lunch at one of the best Italian restaurants in Shizuoka City and Prefecture, namely Aquavite in Aoi Ku, Shizuoka City, and check what Chef Masaru Aoki/青木優 was creating with products mainly from our Prefecture!

Great new board introducing the team!

Lunch menus according to your budget!

I always eat at the counter for a good reason!

But tables and chairs are more comfortable!

All these vegetables are organically grown in Shizuoka!

Now, what was I served?
Japanese-style grilled eggplant with Serrano Jamon Ham from Spain!
All vegetables organically grown by Shizen no Chikara Farm in Shizuoka City!

Naturally all bread is home-baked!

An unctuous cold organic corn (from Ikawa, Shizuoka City) soup conceived only with olive oil and salt. No dairy products! A vegan treat!

Corzetti pasta in creamy daikon leaves and bacon sauce!

For a closer view!

The corzetti pasta stamp!

Madai/True Seabream poelee with organic vegetables!
Let’s have a look around that dish!

Can you see the delicious fish from Shizuoka?
The Trevise is Italian but the other vegetables, including the violet potato, are all organically grown at Shizen no Chikara Farm (Shizuoka City) and Matsuki Bio Farm (Fujinomiya City)!

So yummy and well-balanced!

The fish! So soft and juicy!
And so artistically presented!

Time for dessert!

Can you guess?

Watermelon granite atop vanilla custard ice-cream!

Soft almond tart!

And for once, I had tea!

To be continued (count on that!)….
