Dinner club – the Japanese special from Liz


OH MY GOD. Someone has just raised the standard for dinner club food into stratospheric levels and that someone would be my little sis *proud*.

Our current theme for Dinner Club meals is countries and a few weeks ago Matt raised the level pretty high with a spanish meal (unfortunately I was too ill to eat and so, didn’t blog about it) – he made grilled mussels with chorizo, an amazing paella and churros with chocolate sauce.

Liz chose Japanese, which is a difficult choice – it’s a complicated cuisine and is not exactly a common cuisine so it’s unlikely she’s had much practise in it. But as it turns out, she made some amazing food.

Starters were futomaki with cream cheese and roasted sweet potato.

So far so good we all thought. That was delicious. And then came the main course – a tasting platter of grilled teriyaki chicken skewers, Ottolenghi’s black pepper tofu and pumpkin korroke. Served with wasabi mayonaise, rocket and fruity katsu sauce.

Dessert was an amazing Japanese cheesecake. This was a baked cake which possibly was one of the softest, tastiest and most amazing slices of cake I have ever had. Recommend highly.
