Chef Katsuya Honda, who has an experience of 15 years in Washoku cuisine, will be presenting his craft at EN for the next six months. "This heritage status is the one of the biggest honors that a Japanese chef can get. It is at par with a Michelin star," says Honda.
He describes the art that is Washoku. "The cuisine is associated with a spirit of respect for nature and is closely related to the sustainable use of resources." One can witness the cuisine in its glory during the New Year celebrations in Japan. "The Japanese make various preparations to welcome the deities… pounding rice cakes and preparing special meals using fresh ingredients, each of which as a symbolic meaning," is how the cuisine is described in the UNESCO list. One of factors that have led to the heritage status is that the cuisine plays an important role in strengthening social cohesion among the Japanese and gives them a sense of identity.
Honda will be presenting dishes like omisoshiru or traditional white Miso soup. You can request for traditional Washoku fare like the shira-ae, a mashed tofu salad that is served chilled. Made with carrots, spinach, jelly-like konnyaku, green beans and tofu, the shira-ae is not an easy dish to find in most Japanese restaurants.
Washoku is all about cooking from the soul, a belief treasured by Honda. "I bring a method that has been honored over time to create a signature style. I always put something special in my food - my heart or kokoro, as they say in Japanese," he says.
Chef Miyashita will be available in the absence of Chef Katsuya.
