Shojin meal

Mr Tanahashi created the most amazing meal over six courses, which was satisfying, delicious and utterly splendid. He told us that no machines are used in the food creation which is just astonishing, especially when the dishes were complicated and intricate.

An excellent meal and great service, too!

Lovely presentation of cooking with meditation. A printed sheet with the ingredients for the sesame dressing and a list of stockists of the tools required to make it would have been useful.

The dressing made the vegetables taste really delicious and I will try it once I have the appropriate kitchen tools.
