Chef Toru Arima/有馬亨さん at Pissenlit French Restaurant in Aoi Ku, Shizuoka City, in constant search for new recipes and presentations of local products, especially vegetables.
Terrines are a typical French delicacy born out of winter necessities but they are usually made with meat and served cold.
Now, Chef Arima has come up with a beautiful dish to warm you up in winter and also to help promote your health during this overeating season: Warm Vegetables Terrine with Shizuoka products!
A combination of colors you will not often see in winter, but here in Shizuoka vegetables are abundant even in winter!
Chef Arima cut out two slices delicately and arranged them head to toe!
The terrine comprises three different layers of vegetables.
The top layer contains no less than three kinds of mushrooms!
The middle layer was created with plenty of soft and succulent spinach!
The bottom layer consisted of resplendent carrot for a subtle balance of three very different vegetable savors!
The sauce was prepared with the vegetable juices, olive oil and garam masala for a light and superb accompaniment!
The finishing touch was achieved with local fresh tomato puree and herbs!
When health and flavors combine for a gastronomic experience!
