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. In addition, host Yu Hayami joins the upcoming young chef Taku Sekine to visit a farm in Normandy that began growing Kyoto's traditional vegetables in 2016, to introduce casual dishes that combine freshly picked vegetables with French ingredients.

The theme this episode is sakura shrimp. These clear pink shrimp can only be caught in fall and winter, off the coast of Yui, Shizuoka, in the Suruga Bay, making them a rare treat. Chef Saito and Yu Hayami meet the third-generation chef of a seafood restaurant in Yui that boasts 65 years of history, and he shows a number of dishes made using these unique shrimp. In particular, they learn about sakura shrimp kaki-age, made with the lightest batter possible to give it a light, crisp crunch, while letting the sakura shrimp's natural sweetness and color shine through.
