Japanese lunch: Subuta on Saturdays of

If to you guests unexpectedly appeared suddenly, remember Elena Molokhovets`s council: go down in a cellar and take cold veal and a pickles. But, if you beforehand invited friends to have supper this weekend, anything it is better not to think up ethnic evening.

the Dinner under sounds of a cat

the Japanese entertainment - is ideal

from the point of view of ease of preparation, tastes and, of course, effect which it has. But for creation of a situation of the real Japanese feast it is necessary to think over not only main courses, but also the corresponding surroundings. However, today it is simple.

to cover a simple, but tasty and seductive table (others, by the way, at Japanese and does not happen), it is quite enough to make several options of sushi, a norimaka, about - nigir, sashimi and soup miso. All this prepares quickly and so simply that in power even to the beginner. As drinks offer guests the Japanese green tea sentya, plum wine umesyu and the Japanese beer - without them your party will not turn out truly Japanese.

Rather sociable it will become if you call friends on nabemono - broth from various products (meat, a bird, mushrooms, escapes of a bamboo, transparent rice noodles, vegetables, crabs) which prepares directly on a table on a gas torch. This food very well goes in the winter: when on the street the frost, is not present anything better than the warming broth and sake. Though to do it it is rather troublesome, besides not everyone has a torch.

But it is the best of all for p to surprise guests with the real house Japanese dinner. Without samurai fast - foot. Prepare dishes which are eaten in everyday life by Japanese. It is original and tasty.

As for surroundings, if you started a holiday in the Japanese style, it is necessary to observe some conventions. If you decided suit an entertainment in the evening (ideal option), it is better to muffle lighting in the apartment, having directed light from a floor lamp to a wall, and to illuminate passes from an entrance door to the room in one hundred - another of the small candles placed on a floor.

Instead of music include records of sounds of the nature - murmur of a stream or singing of birds - or the Japanese national tools. So, the pacifying sounding of a cat will approach arrival of guests. At the height of fun it is possible to put vigorous rhythms of bass Japanese drums tayko. And here it is better not to use aromas: strong aroma will only distract from taste of dishes. Besides recent researches showed that the substances emitted at combustion of aromas badly influence health.

Four it “is impossible“ for

If you use chopsticks, remember four Japanese it “is impossible“: sticks it is impossible to move plateaus with food and pans with soup; it is impossible to transfer by them food; it is impossible to drive in indecision sticks over food, solving to choose; and, at last, them it is impossible to pierce food (whether it be sushi or another viands).

serve to

with the advent of guests easy green tea to fill an interval before giving of dishes. The cooked sushi, sashimi and norimak spread on various plateaus, only not on round or oval - Japanese prefer dishes in the form of a fan, the boat or leaves, and you for certain will have something similar. Decorate plateaus with flowers or the plants having symbolical value. For example, the pine - a longevity symbol, a peach - eternal youth, cherry - began spring, an iris - valors. And still - try to prepare all dishes closer for arrival of guests that their taste did not manage to leave. Perhaps, it is worth leaving a little rice and other ingredients that your friends could experiment with stuffings and even to find new taste.

Soup miso is served usually together with sushi. Unfortunately, to prepare it in house conditions, even very comfortable, it is almost impossible. Therefore use paste miso in bags, and taste of your soup will differ in nothing from restaurant especially as there he is trained from this semi-finished product too.

And dishes which recipes we offer you can be given when necessary and in any sequence.

At a party in the Japanese style not to do without beer. And if someone tells you that to drink beer from the land or a norimaka - a bad form, do not listen to it: Japanese so do. Their favourite grades of beer - light Kirin and Sapporo - can be bought also from us. As well as sweet plum wine umesyu. In Japan they drink it, diluting with mineral water. Of course, there is fear that this peace party with singing of birds, rituals and conventions can develop into an ordinary friendly wine party. Well, it too quite in Japanese. Finish its song competition a karaoke - very much promotes liberation and further rapprochement of invited.

By the way
In Japan it is a lot of small taverns specializing in preparation of one dish. For example, if the person wants to eat a shish kebab, it goes to such restaurant where give only shish kebabs. And if he wants noodles, then will go to other restaurant where will make for it noodles. The same and with cooks. Many cooks specialize in preparation of a certain dish. But they can prepare it in 20 different options.
Japanese use two types of sticks: disposable and reusable. Disposable move at restaurants. Generally they are done of a linden or of an aspen. For the house sticks of reusable use are bought. They are bone or from valuable breeds of a tree. In addition such sticks undersign manually or are inlaid.

Finally do not forget to present to each guest a small gift for memory of unusual evening. Handing it, you surely have to tell (as the real Japanese):“ It is a real trifle, but deign to accept“. It is possible to present anything - from a set of toothpicks to a pearl necklace from Tiffany, the phrase does not change. For the real Japanese the most important - invariable ritual.
