Dining with the Chef

In our Cook Around Japan series, we visit different parts of the country and explore their local foods. For this two-part installment, we're visiting Kesennuma, Miyagi Prefecture. This first episode focuses on Kesennuma Port, where the resilient townspeople have rebuilt the area after countless disasters over the years. One of our regular chefs, Rika Yukimasa, will be visiting this port town, and learning about the simple yet sophisticated techniques used by local chefs to serve freshly caught bonito tuna, kichiji rockfish, Pacific saury, and more.

Dining with the Chef

The theme for this episode is making soboro, or tiny seasoned bits. Chef Saito will show how to make soboro that come in very handy for home cooking or bento lunches. Whether it's the sweet and savory simmered chicken soboro or the deliciously fine scrambled egg soboro, they both go great with fresh snow peas for a beautifully colorful topping to rice. Chef Saito will demonstrate his useful techniques and tricks for making soboro, including how to make all of the pieces evenly sized. For the side, he will make paper-thin pickled turnip, an elegant Kyoto specialty.
