Dining with the Chef

Our theme this episode is grilling. We'll be making chicken miso gratin, for a Japanese take on Western-style ingredients: stir-fried chicken and boiled potatoes, covered with bechamel sauce seasoned with miso, then heated in the toaster oven until browned and delicious. The secrets to this dish's rich flavor are kombu kelp dashi, full of savory umami flavor, and miso - and they go great with bechamel sauce! For our side dish, we'll be making spicy simmered konnyaku and lotus root. These two characteristic Japanese ingredients are stir-fried and seasoned with a soy sauce-based sauce, for a great combination of the chewy texture of the konnyaku and the crunchiness of the lotus root. Adding red chili pepper helps give them a delicious bit of heat as an accent, for a side that goes great with drinks, too!
