In spring please enjoy a little bitter with sweet flavors.
Spring vegetables have all a little
bitter, which is vital energy of buds, sprouts and shoots, which is I feel a breath of spring. Fuki, nanohana;rape blossoms, takenoko; bamboo shoots, udo, broad beans, green peas etc. have their own sweet flavors with subtle bitter.
Kinome (Sansho baby leaves) is the best garnish for spring dishes and udo also has a distinct flavor; they are both aromatic.
Please enjoy these spring specials as the window of opportunity is very short!
