Dinner Experiment

I’m going to conduct a bit of a dinner experiment today. My folks are joining us for dinner and I’m going to attempt to make some Japanese food. The menu will include miso soup, eggplant dengaku, vinegared cucumber and chicken donburi. Not sure about dessert yet. Perhaps just some vanilla yogurt with fruit, or a simple cake.

I’m using a book from the library. Japanese Cooking: A Simple Art by Shizuo Tsuji. The book is very detailed! There is a lot of information about dining in proper Japanese style, such as the order the dishes should be served in and the types of dishes to use. Loads of information about the ingredients and possible western substitutes. So far, I’d highly recommend the book for anyone interested in learning about Japanese cuisine. But perhaps I should reserve judgment until after the dinner!

I’ll likely post again tomorrow with some pictures of the food. Wish me luck!
