Atelierkitchen Zen 2

I had a great time with a head chef of Atelier kitchen Zen for wine dinner. Visits his house, cook and drink together. We had been planning for this, but couldn't make it. Finally we made it happen!

Sweet baby shrimp

Sweet baby shrimp is in season. Usually in February, but this year is cold in winter and season got a little mess, so it is behind.

Mackerel with light vinegared

Mackerel with light vinegared. I love this one! Sakanaya in Allston get you the freshest fish. Chardonnay is really good with this one.

 

Toro with caviar

Toro with caviar! Half soy sauce and half sea salt.

Sushi grade squid with stuffed rice

Sushi grade squid with stuffed rice. The chef put nuts in rice, so I enjoyed different texture.

Beef stewed in miso and mirin Dote yaki

Beef stewed in miso and mirin( called Dote yaki), a typical dish from middle area of Japan. Red miso and red wine do a good job when they get together.

Chablis premier cru for white and Auxry-Duresses for red

We got Chablis premier cru for white and Auxry-Duresses for red. I got my glass for Pino Noir, so really enjoyed this wine dinner.

 

Thanks chef!
