    Authentic Japanese Cooking

    Miso Stir Fry with Lotus Root and Chicken

    Our theme this episode is seasoning. We’ll be making a stir-fry, a home-cooked dish popular for its casual simplicity, and add a seasoning made with miso to give it a deliciously sophisticated flavor. Chef Saito will share his own unique seasoning blend, too: by mixing miso with other distinctively Japanese seasonings, you too can bring out the best of ingredients’ flavors and give dishes a satisfying depth! For our side dish, we’ll be cooking rice with sweet potato, an ingredient commonly eaten throughout Japan in autumn and winter. We’ll also learn about how to use a versatile Japanese seasoning that has long been beloved as a drink, to help enhance the sweetness of other ingredients.
