Mixed rice

This is one of my most favourite dishes, which is simply called “mixed rice.” The rice is cooked with mirin, sake, and soy sauce and then mixed with sauteed veggies, in this case: bamboo shoots, shitake mushroom, and onions (he frequently uses carrots, too). This version also includes abura-age (a deep fried tofu sheet). Our side dish is yudofu, aka boiled silken tofu topped with bonito flakes, ginger, soy sauce, and green onions. Heaven. The soup is miso with bean sprouts and seaweed.

Chez Yusuke: a testament to culinary skill

I often find myself telling my dear Yusuke that the dinners he prepares are worthy of being served in restaurants, because of both the visual and gustatory appeal. Therefore, I decided to create a blog to document his culinary talent.Unfortunately, however, I’m finding that my photography skills are rather wretched. They do not do the meals justice at all. But I hope to improve with time.

In the meantime, at least, here is some documentation of the excellent food that I have the privilege to eat each day.N.B. I don’t really plan to include recipes here per se, mostly because many of the dishes are Yusuke’s own creation, or he uses recipes written in Japanese.

I had the idea for this blog months ago, but I just finally put it together. Sadly, I had collected a slew of other food photos which were lost when my laptop snuffed it. But I will rebuild my collection and, I hope, update the blog frequently.
