This tour takes you on a journey through time, through food! Spanning three geographical districts of Tokyo & three periods of time we will cover the foundation of Japanese food (the Edo period; 1603 to 1868), the most popular present-day foods in Japan & futuristic fusion twists on traditional flavours. Starting in Nihonbashi, in the past, we will look at key ingredients & flavours that underpin Japanese food. We will enjoy traditional Japanese snacks that have been eaten for generations. Satsuma-age (fish cake), Amazake (rice drink), Imo Kenpi (potato chips) and Daifuku (glutinous rice mochi ). All of the shops that I have curated are over 100 years old, several date back to the Edo period itself! Next we take a short subway ride to present-day (Yurakcho). We will eat & drink like Salarymen at an Izakaya (Japanese style pub) & noodle stall under the railway tracks. We will have Yakitori (grilled meat on skewers), a Sour (alcoholic drink unique to Japan) &tempura soba ( noodle soup dish). At Tokyo Station we will try Tamagoyaki (Japanese omelette) & Fruits Sando. Arriving in Akihabara, an area famous for its electronics shops & Anime culture, we consider the future of food in Japan. We will try a selection of desserts which combine traditional flavours with a modern fusion twist. My special relationships with local producers allow a backstage access to their stories.
