Last night, Tania & I hosted a dinner party at the apartment. The theme was Japanese, using alot of ingredients that we'd bought recently in Japan.
A big hit all round: I've attached photos for your drooling pleasure.
The night started off with some nibbles: egg custard cakes with shitake mushrooms, spring onions & a bit of Japanese mayonnaise; puff pastry with toasted sesame seeds, seaweed & parmesan (not very Japanese I know !!).
The entree consisted of a selection of grilled & skewered: chicken with leek; shitake mushrooms & bacon-wrapped asparagus (served with a very nice cold, Kyoto sake).
The main dish was a serve of miso soup on the side with crumbed, pan-fried pork; Japanese coleslaw & teriyaki corn on the cob.
Dessert was a green tea tiramisu with a serve of traditional Kyoto sweets.
