Dining with the Chef

The theme for this episode is grilling. Chef Saito and Yu Hayami make yakiniku, or Japanese-style grilled meats, using beef, pork and chicken, served with three seasonings and three sauces, for all sorts of delicious combinations. Chef Saito demonstrates his skills by beautifully presenting the meat with plenty of fresh vegetables, as well as wasabi, ginger and umeboshi pickled plum, to give it a Japanese-style accent. They also make thick, hearty, and nutritious barley rice with grated yamaimo Japanese yam: they add rolled barley to rice before cooking it, to add plenty of nutrition and a nice firm texture, and then top it with thick grated yamaimo Japanese yam for a delicious way to beat summer lethargy.

In this episode, Chef Saito makes hand-rolled temaki sushi, a staple of Japanese house parties. Instead of the usual fresh seafood, he fills the sushi with more laid-back items like cheese and ham, for simple sushi that's bound to delight kids and grown-ups alike. In addition to cheese and ham, he makes sushi filled with imitation crab, tuna and mayonnaise, watercress, cucumber, avocado, lettuce, and takuan pickled daikon radish, for a spread that offers a delicious variety of flavors and textures. Chef Saito also makes mizu-yokan, a popular summer treat.
