Dining with the Chef

In this episode chef Rika Yukimasa and Patrick Harlan make Japanese-style fried meatballs. Rika's mother taught her this unique recipe, where instead of stewing them, the meatballs are fried. By pre-heating onions in the microwave, their flavor can be integrated into the meat more easily. To add seasoning, she uses soy sauce, ginger, and nutmeg to give the flavor plenty of complexity. They also focus on side dish soups made with ginger, and showing a simple recipe for one of the many different Japanese dishes made with ginger.

The theme this episode is soaking. Chef Saito makes spinach ohitashi, a very popular home-cooked standard, served with a unique twist: adding Japan's best known edible flower, chrysanthemums, for a beautiful finishing touch. They also make kara-age fried chicken, flavored by soaking the chicken first in a soy sauce-based marinade, with their secret ingredient, Chinese chili oil, rounding out the flavor with just a hint of heat.
