The explosion of the New Nordic cuisine — a fusion of traditional dishes with French-inspired gastronomic modernism — is one of the most exciting culinary tales of recent years. One of Japan’s leading experts in the style is the chef at Hatsu, an innovative Japanese restaurant in Osaka.
He trained in Copenhagen from 2006 to 2014, when the wave of avant-garde gastronomy began to take hold. The knowledge he gained there now informs his own unique take on Japanese cuisine. His goal is to present Japanese cuisine in all its richness, in a new light.
As in Scandinavia, fermentation is key to his process. Cabbage is fermented as an ideal dressing for fish, and fermented asparagus with lemon provided an acidic note to cut through his dishes. Seasonal ingredients are key to Japanese cuisine, and it also takes center stage here, with their signature Hatsu salad displaying the very best natural produce that the region has to offer.
