Tonkatsu – Japanese Pork Cutlet

with 4 comments


Katsukura, September 2010 in Kyoto, Japan

Tonkatsu is breaded, deep-fried pork cutlet and a popular dish in Japan, often served with shredded cabbage. Katsukura on Kyoto’s busiest shopping district Kawaramachi (河原町) is the most famous restaurant for Tonkatsu in Kyoto. Each customer gets a mortar and pestle to grind fresh sesame and mix it into the special sauce for the pork.

Here in the picture is a tonkatsu menu with seasonal yuba (Tofu skin) rolls.

Homemade, March 2009 in Vienna, Austria

Recently I enjoy very much to “cook by the book”. Some people think it’s too simple, but <The Instant Cook> by Donna Hay provides a lot of inspiration for people who cook often and do not always have much time to prepare.

Seafood-salad with Maine Lobster, Zucchini Flower, Berries & Red clover

with one comment

Steirereck, August 2008 in Vienna, Austria

I can still remember the natural sweetness in the lobster. In this dish, lots of herbs and spices are used with berries to create the fond, the dark color is from sepia. It’s very popular now to eat flowers and grass/leaves. Well, as long as they aren’t poisonous, why not? But from my few experiences as “cattle”, I really didn’t taste much. Probably real cattle have different taste buds.

Wirtshaus am Pogusch, June 2008 in Turnau, Austria

In 1996 the owner of Steirereck created this country house restaurant in a beautiful village in Styria. Here you get meat from their own farm, fish from the nearby pond, and vegetables from the garden behind. The staff welcome you in traditional Austrian clothing, oh, and you are also welcome to go inside their cellar to choose your own bottle of wine.
