The Origin of the California Roll

Bookmark and Share
The style of sushi we know and love originates in Japan, and the Japanese are known for their adoption and innovation of western ideas. As sushi moved westward into the U.S., it became more and more popular. California was a natural inception point for many things Japanese, and sushi was a big hit on the west coast from the start. Back in the 1960′s, though, food transportation was not as efficient as it is now, so acquiring certain types of fish was not always easy.

'Tis the season for simmered flounder with wakame

Bookmark and Share
Early spring is the season for various kinds of white fish suitable for use in lightly simmered "nitsuke" dishes.
"Nitsuke is eaten by dipping the fish in the sauce. The cooking liquid should not seep into the fish," says cooking expert Tatsuo Saito.
He uses "komochi-karei," or flounder with roe, but separates the roe from the fish. That prevents the fish from becoming overcooked while waiting for the roe to be done.
Key to the dish is blanching the fish with boiling water before cooking to clean the surface and enhance the flavor.

Japanese graters

Oroshigane

Oroshigane are used to grate daikon radish and mountain potato, as well as ginger and wasabi. This copper oroshigane is the standard shape, though they are made in many sizes.
Copper is the most suitable material for the oroshigane - ensuring that the teeth will be neither too hard nor soft. For copper graters like this one, a thin copper sheet is first pounded with a spring hammer to strengthen the metal before being cut by hand into the classic shape.
After being plated in tin, the teeth are then cut and raised tooth by tooth - a painstaking job still done by hand. (Any handmade grater with worn teeth can be refurbished.)

Houtou (Yamanashi Prefecture)

Houtou is a local dish from Yamanashi. Noodles similar to udon (wheat-flour noodles) are cooked with pumpkin or other vegetables in miso soup. This noodle is wider and flatter than regular wheat-flour noodles and is placed in the pot raw without boiling first. Houtou cooked with mushy pumpkin in miso-based soup is very tasty and other vegetables such as potatoes and mushrooms are included with pork and chicken if desired. According to legend, you will not catch cold if you eat pumpkin on the winter solstice (shortest day of the year, around December 22), and this custom is followed in Yamanashi. A bowl of houtou with highly nutritious pumpkin will certainly warm you up on a cold day.

Simmered Pork Belly

Bookmark and Share
It's one of those recipes which turns a cheap, less popular cut of meat into something brain-meltingly gorgeous, with very little effort. There's a little bit of an interesting philosophical twist in there as well, because if you can cook great things with the less popular cuts of an animal it's a great way of showing respect to that (once)living thing and making its death worthwhile.

Feb 26Dressed to kill: Japan's ninja festival
To arrive in Iga-Ueno on the first Sunday in April is to feel like a stranger in ninjatown. This small city in the mountains, about two hours by train from Osaka, is supposedly the ancestral home of those fearsome feudal super-sneaks and master killers, whose name and reputation have spread across the world through movies, comic books and video games. Here in Japan, ninjas are now something of a national myth, a slightly cartoonish composite of old folk tales and modern pop culture. This morning in Iga Ueno, however, it would be discourteous to dispute their existence. It's the opening day of the annual ninja festival, and travel on public transport is free to anyone in costume.
