Washoku - World Heritage Cuisine - A Farmers Choice
Seven years ago we wrote that ‘Great Food, Good Fun and Genuine Friendship are equal partners at Eastward House’. Two days ago we met four cheerful friends from Orkney that exemplified the mantra and came for a foodie treat to celebrate a birthday.
From Canapés and nine servings of an exciting dining experience to a three course gourmet breakfast the morning after, we can’t print the laughter and happiness but here is the exquisite food.
Very Fresh sushi with genuine Japanese freshly rubbed wasabi. Featuring, hand dived scallops, organic salmon and Westray crab.
Sashimi salmon and mackerel with yuzu pepper.
Tataki seared Tuna
Hotaté local hand-dived Scallop
Tempura Monk fish tails, haddock
Plum wine sorbet
Teriyaki fillet beef
Double chocolate birthday cake.
Green Tea fondant au chocolat, Green Tea misu, Green tea syrup.
This was a dining experience where people talked about Japanese customs, culture, food and ate Washoku cuisine. All within a setting reflecting something of the characteristics of Japan.
Starting the day in the customary manner of a farmer, a quiet walk in the countryside before breakfast.
Three course Gourmet Breakfasts
Happy fruit first followed by addictive porridge.
Some chose salmon - Some chose Provencal beef.
