      Moto's Kitchen: Recipe 36 - Shiso Granita

      Wednesday, July 23

      Today in Moto's Kitchen we are making a summer treat: Shiso Granita! Granita is a classic Italian shaved ice, but we are spicing up this recipe with some Japanese fusion. By combining the light, fragrant flavors of shiso and lime, this dish is a perfect way to refresh and relax after a hot day in the sun. Shiso is a Japanese herb, typically used as a garnish on dishes like sushi or sashimi. It has a freshness and fragrance similar to that of mint that pairs very nicely with citrus flavors like lemon or lime. Enjoy!  Start Video

      Moto's Kitchen: Recipe 34 - Konnyaku

      Tuesday, June 10

      In this episode of Moto's Kitchen we will learn how to prepare "konnyaku", a traditional Japanese yam cake enjoyed by many for its chewy, squid-like texture. "Konnyaku" is made from the konjac root, a vegetable similar to that of taro. Despite its unique consistency, "konnyaku" actually has very little taste on its own. Today, we will use the subtle flavors of Japanese staple ingredients like soy sauce and mirin to create the base for this meal. Enjoy!  Start Video
