Autumn Hamo (Japanese conger eel) and Matsutake Mushrooms

The bonfires have ended and the first signs of autumn are peeking out. Hamo (Japanese conger eel), the main culinary star of the Gion Festival, changes its appearance with the passing of summer. Yet hamo is equally representative of the autumn season. Combining it with matsutake mushrooms makes for a gorgeous dish, one we accent with a crisp finish of kabosu citrus.

Chilled Sea Urchin and Tomato Soup

Stroll around Kyoto in July and you’ll find dumpling-shaped talismans hanging on doorways, marking homes as “Descendants of Somin Shōrai” (蘇民将来之子孫也). A nod to the legend of a poor man who offered food to a god disguised as a weary traveler and received generous blessings in return, the talisman is said to offer protection from disease and misfortune. Food can improve one’s quality of life, just as the character 食 suggests. What better reminder than a dish to celebrate the summer harvest, carefully nurtured and free of pesticides: sea urchin and tomatoes from Umemoto Farm in Kyotango blended together in a chilled soup.

Chili Pepper Leaves

Chili Pepper Leaves

Starring here is the chili pepper leaf, or kigoshō. Seeds planted in spring have sprouted and grown little by little each day. Among them are green chili peppers, one of Kyoto’s most popular summer vegetables. The peppers vary in terms of aroma, type, and size, and their leaves and flowers are edible—and delicious. Aromatic and refreshing, the flavor is as fresh as it looks. Enjoy the taste of summer a little early this year.

The young sweetfish (ayu) from Lake Biwa herald the beginning of summer. Their petite size—about the length of an index finger—belies a surprisingly full-bodied flavor. We add refreshing white miso paste and punchy sweet onions and wild garlic to bring out the savory and bitter palate of the small fish.Read more >
