Dear Modern Japanese fusion cuisine,
You have captured my tastebuds and my belly.
Because of you I have learnt that Japanese cuisine is far more than sushi and teriyaki and katsu. Thank goodness.
Oh no, you have taught me that it is perfectly acceptable to have lamb and scallop in the same dish
And because of this, one day you will gently guide me to eat sashimi for the first time like my dining companions did.
You reminded me that you can have a plate of little delicious things instead of a plate piled high with something that tastes the same.
And lastly, you taught me that dessert doesn’t need to be dense or sickly sweet to hit the spot.
But mostly I learnt that my friend Margot was quite marvellous for introducing me to the delightful, delicious Nine Fine Food.
