Let Chef Takeda Plan Your Meal at Sushi Nanese

August 20, 2014 4:04 pm

At $100 per person, the chef's tasting menu at Sushi Nanese may be a bit pricey; however, you'd be hard pressed to find a diner who didn't find the experience well worth the splurge.

Known as the omakase dinner, this smorgasbord of a Japanese meal epitomizes the way master sushi chef Yoshimichi Takeda (formerly a chef at Nobu in New York City) plays by his own rules. Guests are subject to his whims during the four-course meal, which includes four tastings that may include dishes such as sashimi fuke, scallops and black truffle oil, or mushroom and pepper salad. They're paired with sushi, a full seafood entree, and something for dessert, possibly fresh pear sorbet tinged with ginger.

Loyal fans of this White Plains establishment say you're in good hands with Chef Takeda. Just make sure you call ahead for a reservation, since you won't be seated without one, even if seats are available. And never ask for a box to store your leftovers: Chef Takeda's creations are meant to be enjoyed fresh and in-house.

These Recipes for Fresh Strawberries Are Berry Delicious

August 13, 2014 4:03 pm

Strawberries taste delicious all on their own, so imagine how tasty they’ll be when expertly combined with other creative ingredients. If you want to make sweet and savory dishes that utilize your favorite fruit, these strawberry recipes are a great resource.

Berry “Pizza”
This dessert combines the rich, tangy taste of ricotta cheese with sweet and fragrant strawberries into individual pies. Flour tortillas create the crust, while the ricotta imitates the cheese of a more traditional pizza pie. If that’s not already enough, the small, individual sizes of these desserts are just simply adorable.

Strawberry Cream Cheese Bread
Make a sweet breakfast treat that the whole family will love with this recipe for Strawberry Cream Cheese Bread. The cream cheese adds a creamy texture, while the chunks of fresh strawberries create a lovely pop of pink color. The end result is dense and sweet, and it tastes perfect when paired with a steaming cup of hot coffee.

Grilled Mahi Mahi Tacos with Strawberry Salsa
Fish tacos are a lunch or dinnertime favorite, but they’re only enhanced by the sweet and spicy taste of a homemade strawberry salsa. Add an avocado sour cream dipping sauce, and this dish will secure a place on your list of favorite recipes!
