Spring Dishes with Bamboo Shoots
This episode features bamboo shoots - the ingredient that symbolizes spring in Japan! We take a look at takikomi rice, as well as chawan mushi which is given a smooth, velvety texture with egg and which brings out the full umami flavor of dashi. In addition to these two fine examples of Japanese cuisine that use bamboo springs lovingly, we will also present a simple steamed fish dish.
