Dining with the Chef

In this episode, chef Saito and Yu Hayami make deliciously fragrant fried rice with kabayaki eel, which is dipped in a sweet and savory sauce and grilled. Chef Saito demonstrates some techniques to make it beautiful and delicious. He also makes another popular dish: steam-fried gyoza dumplings. These are different from standard gyoza - the filling is made with plenty of uniquely Japanese herbs, giving chef Saito's recipe its own distinct flavor. These bite-sized gyoza are crispy on the outside and juicy inside, for a delicious dish you won't get tired of.

Dining with the Chef

The destination this time is Paris, France, the "City of Lights." This center of arts and culture is also known for its residents' exceptional interest in food - and of late, this interest has turned to the authentic washoku made by Japanese chefs in Paris. Thirty years ago, chef Saito started his own career as a chef in Paris, as well. We join him for his return trip, as he explores the ways that modern washoku has evolved as a deeply beloved cuisine in this gourmet capital.
