There is a beautiful and delicious intertwined relationship between food and the 4 seasons in Japan. It’s rather obvious when put into words but each season is uniquely different in climate and condition, which produces, in turn, unique foods that represent each season.

And in Japan there is a tradition of appreciating the seasons through various dishes that accentuate seasonal foods. Perhaps the most famous summer dish is cold somen noodles. And in a wonderful tutorial produced by Casa Brutus, chef and self-proclaimed “food producer” Yuri Nomura teaches us how to prepare the dish. The full recipe is right here.

  1. During my first summer in Tokyo my Japanese friends introduced and taught me the preparation for soumen, and I’ve been enjoying it ever since.

    It’s an incredibly easy meal to prepare, but so refreshing in the heat of summer. One of the wonders of Japanese cuisine. :]
