Japanese food art

26 08 2010

For special occasions, a fine meal may be in order. One of those times was last evening to celebrate my wedding anniversary with DH (darling husband). The fine meal was the kaiseki prix fixe menu at the Japanese restaurant Miyako in The New Otani Kaimana Beach Hotel at Sans Souci Beach at the foot of Diamond Head.

Sashimi. Everything on the plate in this beautiful presentation is edible.

The artistry in the presentation of all seven courses served one at a time over two hours was a treat—a reminder to incorporate good design in everything we do 😉 —as were the flavors from the food. It reminded us of TV’s Iron Chef. The difference was that we ate everything and sipped sake to softly played music while enjoying the view of Waikiki and the spectacular sunset.

My gosh, where has the time gone, Ron? DH and I go to the shore where you married us four or five times a week at least, but now it is to take our 15-month-young granddaughter to play. My painting “Morning Destination” depicts the spot. We just looked at our wedding photos today. You did good too! Ever grateful.
