New Years Day, dinner. For us Japanese, New Year’s celebration is a traditional event, most likely THE important day of the year in which we celebrate the day with ‘traditional Japanese osechi’. If anyone of the readers are curious of what ‘osechi is?’, many sites will explain the meaning of some of the osechi dishes. This year I decided to venture out from the tradition to a somewhat non-tradtional ‘washoku cuisine’ to something which I call it ‘multi-cultured washoku’.
Duck is not so much a common meat at a Japanese dinner table. Most often use of ‘duck’ is a ‘duck hot pot’ which comes quite common in the Osaka-Kyoto area more so than Tokyo.
