Supper Club, Cuisine of Japan. Tonight's event was fabulous! Full photos here. All participants melded with the theme of Japan. Caren even wore an antique kimono, while Emil wore a traditional blue and white summer Yukata which Linda and Anna had given him as a gift a few Christmases ago. It was wonderful to welcome first-timers Richard and Paige who blended right into our mix of chefs seamlessly.

The final menu, served in separate courses:

Catepillar Sushi - Glen
Edamame - Tom M.
Chawanmushi - Stephanie
Okonomiyaki - Tom H.
Yasai dengaku - Linda
Buridaikon - Emil
Banbanji - Bob
Miso Soup - Karen
Somen - Richard
Sushi - Glen
Refreshing Daikon-Okra Salad (pictured) - Anna
Assortment of Sweet Mochi and Mochi Ice Cream - Paige

Caren, Tom M. & Karen and Richard all brought an amazing selection of authentic sake in different styles and regions and the tasting was a total education! Anna brought a traditional Japanese Plum Wine for dessert as well.
