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.
