Lasagne with season ingredients : kabocha pumpkin, mushrooms, mature sakekasu (sake lees)…
First, I’ve made the pasta with durum semolina.
Steamed kabocha pumpkin. Silky tofu, crumbled and mixed with a little olive oil, thyme, salt, pepper, chili flakes.
On the boiled pasta, I’ve layered kabocha, tofu and sauce.
For the sauce, I’ve pasted the nuts, garlic, sakekasu.
Added the paste to the soaked fungi. Added a tbs of potato starch to thicken slightly. Let a few minutes on low heat. Seasoned with salt and pepper.
Top sauce : I’ve pasted sakekasu, miso, water, olive oil, then added broken walnuts.
A newly created Japanese citrus. キノス kinosu, from 木の酢, which means “vinegar from trees”. It has a very fruity flavor.
Blanched okra with negi leeks and kinosu juice as a green side.
