Dining in reminisce,Kai Shoku
The Japanese language is wonderfully flexible.
Kaishoku, for instance, can mean something as banal as a "dinner party" or as out of this world as one of Mother's "unforgettable culinary treats."
Kaishoku, in the sense of being unforgettable having its roots in the basic Japanese culinary arts, is how Michiba Rokusaburo describes his own cuisine.
It is the joy of partaking each season's culinary delights in the kaiseki style.
The food is instilled with the chef's feelings from the heart.
"Shoku" means cuisine, while "Kai" means yearning, feeling, heart-best and unforgettable.
It is chef Michiba Rokusaburo's culinary soul.
