The samurai lifestyle was nourished by a simple, balanced diet that lent the warriors strength and agility on the battlefield. Mealtime was a time for replenishment and rejuvenation, centered around wholesome foods like lotus root, dried taro stems, wasabi and shiso. Kanna Himiya, author of The Samurai Gourmet (pictured) and a descendant of the chef of the powerful Maeda samurai clan from Ishikawa Prefecture, joins us to reveal the ancient recipes and eating habits of Japan’s legendary military class. Moderated by Michael Romano, renowned chef and food ambassador of Ishikawa Prefecture. Followed by a book signing reception featuring sake & food samples from Ishikawa Prefecture. This program will be presented in Japanese with consecutive interpretation in English.
