Name of ingredients
Abalone
Comments from the chef
Our abalones are caught at Nagai fishing port in Miura Peninsula. Since this season ended last year we have been anxiously waiting for the time that abalones are once again in season. There are many different cooking styles of abalones such as Japanese and Chinese, but I believe that abalones prepared the French way are the most delicious. Even though it is a simple cooking style (roasted abalone prepared in a red wine liver pate sauce), it is very tasty!

Name of ingredients
Tomato
Comments from the chef
When tomatoes are in the market, summer is just around the corner. As the weather gets hotter, the taste of tomatoes becomes more delicious. My dishes become softer, more rich and full-flavored by using tomatoes. And also they become easier to eat. Tomatoes are the kings of vegetables in summer and we cannot cook dishes in summertime without them.
