I have a different Food for Friday today. I've been wanting to post more about things I cook but since my current apartment is very small and dark it's not easy to do.
But last year I did get a chance to do something amazing. A couple years ago I decided I wanted to learn more about Japanese cooking and not just how to make certain dishes, I discovered Elizabeth Andoh's "Washoku" cook book. It was exactly what I was looking for. So I was more than happy to help her out with testing recipes last year for her new book "Kibo".
So I'm going to post some photos from one of the recipes I tested and write a bit more about her book at the end of this post. This recipe is called Oysters on the River Bank. Above is the secret miso glaze that is a key part of the recipe. If you want to know how to make it, well you will have to get the book. As for the rest of this recipe testing and more about the dish, keep reading!
