Dining With the Chef

Hosts Yu Hayami and Patrick Harlan, with the help of Japanese chefs Tatsuo Saito and Rika Yukimasa, introduce Americans to the techniques, ingredients and harmony of Japanese cuisine. The series features a wide variety of Japanese dishes that can be prepared at home, from beef bowl with poached egg and rice to tofu hamburger steaks made with low-fat ground chicken. Other dishes include Japanese-style stewed beef, Japanese-style fried meatballs seasoned with soy sauce, ginger and nutmeg, and deep-fried rockfish with grated daikon radish and ponzu sauce.
