There are some foods associated with Iron Chef: Fois gras; truffles; matsutake mushrooms; hamo (pike conger eel); consomme jelly and piiman (capsicum). Last night I had 3 in a single meal.
First entrée was chestnuts, ham, cheese and
matsutake mushroom croquette. Second was abalone, sanma and piiman.
Hamo and snapper carpaccio seasoned with hamo bones was next. It’s the one with lots of bones that needs lots of cuts to remove the flesh; featured in 3 battles.
Next was something with cons0mme jelly (I’ll translate later).
To show the rice course in its best, I had it with curry.
I have no idea how much this cost as I was too slow to get the o-kanjou.
