home made duck prosciutto

This is our 1st attempt with home made prosciutto.

Home made duck prosciutto:
It came out really nicely. I tried it with warmed chikurin (sake) and it was an amazing match.

Kobushime Duck prosciutto (Cured with Konbu seaweed washed with sake): This one was great with cold Akitabare (sake). I think a dry white wine with a lot of mineral will go nicely as well.

Grilled Japanese red snapper with sparkling squid salsa:
Once you bite into the sparkling squid, the juice of the squid turns into an excellent sauce for the red snapper.

Chicken Pot-au-Feu

The inspiration for this dish was "Oden", which is one of many Japanese seasonal winter dishes that warms you up from the inside on a chilly day.

Grilled chicken with slow cooked vegetables in a pork/chicken broth combined with Dashi (bonito flake broth).

I recommend this to be had with warm mild junmai type sake.

Green tea macaron with azuki cream

Those of you who already called in to reserve a table - Thank you.

But the restaurant is not opened just yet.

This long delay is causing me to lose hair. Literally.
Our chef took pity on me and made some macarons.

We will open before I lose all hair (and there aren't so much left). Thank you for your patience.
