Bamboo are in season and “take gohan/bamboo shoots rice” can be seen everywhere!
A very colorful rice dish!
The Missus prepared the finely chopped carrot and the bamboo shoots (cut into small triangular pieces) beforehand to soften them a bit and than steamed them on top of the rice before mixing the lot.
She placed a fresh sansho/Japanese pepper sprig (very much in season) on top for more color and seasoning.
A solid side dish! (I’m just recovering from a very bad cold and I need the calories!)
Pork fillet she pan-fried and which she seasoned (while still frying) at the last second with mayonnaise and capers. Very Italian/French/Japanese!
Shizuoka-grown Ameera Rubbins Peral Tomatoes, green and white asparagus tip, stick Junior Broccoli and lettuce.
The other showing the kabocha and sweet black beans salad!
I did have a dessert consisting of ornage, grapes and prunes!
Healthy, solid and really tasty!
