It was Tom's birthday a few days ago and I threw myself into the preparation of a surprise Kaiseki - the traditional multi-course Japanese dinner - for the occasion. I drew inspiration from the recipe book "Everyday Harumi" by Japanese TV personality Harumi Kurihara as well as the blog Christine's Recipes - and highly recommend both sources for the recipes they present are not just reliable and delicious, but also very authentic while accessible to any proficient home cook. As I was expecting, the very methodical approach and attention to detail in Japanese cooking greatly appealed to me, and I found real pleasure preparing this series of small and delicate dishes. The meal turned out to be a feast for the eyes just as much as for the tastebuds, and I'm now happy - and quite proud - to share some photos here.
