The other day for our first visit at Sushi Ko on Aoba Park Street in Shizuoka City we challenged Chef Kenta Birukawa/尾留川健太さん to create a new Sushi Millefeuille for the Year 2016!
Bear in mind that he only can and may do it and that it does not feature on the menu!
“Aburi Sushi Millefeuille/Seared Sushi Millefeuille”!
The concept was indeed new as he announced beforehand that he would “burn” it, a joke meaning that at least the outside would be seared!
The main part of the millefeuille made of sushi rice was surrounded with thin bands of 1) akami/red lean part of tuna, 2) tachiuo/scabbard or cutlass fish, 3) shake/salmon.
It was topped with pieces of ika/cuttle fish/squid and kinmedai/splendid alfonsino.
The whole was then seared before being decorated with thinly sliced cucumber and presented with pieces of tamagoyaki/Japanese omelet and ikura/salmon roe!
And the interior revealed pieces of kyuuri/cucumber, boiled ebi/prawn, tobiko/flying fish roe, tachiuo/scabbard or cutlass fish, shake/salmon and akami/red lean part of tuna!
What is going to be the next challenge? LOL

I will be using some of your photos again to make watercolors for storyboards. With your permission you can be credited. I will be using some of your mountain vegetable photos as reference material from an old project for wild harvests. Years ago I had lived in Kushiro, Hokkaido but took time to tour the other islands.
I would like to inquire about some consulting for us in Japan. We will be sending some samples of Lokum to a Tokyo office and I would like to ask if you are interested to see some? A farm in Shizuoka may repeat some of our work with Mikan and with Jabotica fruit. That might be interesting too? Funds generated will help indigenous people in Colombia but also refugees from Syria, Turkey and Ukraine.
We will need an informal quality assessment of our work. This is being done for us in France, Belgium and Germany, but I would like to get an opinion from Japan as well.
Because our Lokum is cold processed it keeps many antioxidants normally lost in heat processing.
I value your opinion and you are in the Shizuoka area.
Fruit filled manti in Turkey and Syria are like gyoza in Japan or vareniki in Ukraine and Georgia.
If interested …how can I have the Tokyo office contact you? On Jan 19, 2016 8:17 PM, “SHIZUOKA GOURMET” wrote:
