Dining with the Chef

The theme of this episode is seafood. For the main dish, they'll be making asari littleneck clam rice. Littleneck clams are in season right now, so Rika will be introducing this original recipe inspired by Fukagawa-meshi, some of Tokyo's regional cooking. They'll also be learning how to make a soup with oysters and turnips, which are sweeter and tenderer in the spring, as well as nokke tofu, or tofu topped with whitebait and shrimp, rounding off the three seafood dishes for this episode.

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.
