I hope you can read this OK.
Thanks to Narisawa-san’s remarkable generosity I sampled ALL of the below in a feast which lasted around three hours, an incredible experience. These are my pics:
Squid, succulent and sublime
‘Evolve with the Forest’
Horse Crab Gelée
Rockfish, oh boy
The legendary ‘Soil Soup’. Yes, it is made from soil, from atop a Nagano mountain, no less
Pork, Okinawan style, in a dashi of konbu and seasnake. It was awesome.
Hida Beef in charcoal. Yes, you eat the charcoal too.
Oyster baked in, you guessed it, charcoal
Suppon, snapping turtle
Koshu, aged sake, reminded me of Armagnac
