Keyaki at the Pan Pacific Singapore will be presenting three kaiseki presentations between 15 January 2017 and 15 February 2017 that is centered around showcasing seasonal delicacies from Hokkaido, Japan. Each one of these masterfully-crafted presentations by Master Chef Hiroshi Ishii (石井博史) is available for lunch and dinner and diners will be able to select from Hokkai, Donan or Hakodate (from S$170++).
Located on the northern shores of Japan, Hokkaido is renowned for its exceptional, fresh seafood as the cold waters surrounding the coastline location of the prefecture is ideal for harvesting the high quality seafood. Culinary highlights include the Taraba-gani or King Crab, the most coveted species of crab that is prized for its delicate texture, fragrant flavour and succulent, sweet meat when lightly grilled. The Grilled or Simmered Kinki Fish is one of Hokkaido’s premium specialties as the chilly waters allow the fish to develop a delicate layer of fat that gives the meat a sweeter flavour and tender texture. Indulge in the finest scallops of Japan, the Hokkaido Scallops are renowned for their high quality and freshness. Enjoy the scallops sashimi-style or grilled with cod roe sauce to savour the plump, juicy and sweet scallop meat. Producing two-thirds of all potatoes in Japan, Hokkaido potatoes are creamy and enjoy them baked and served with butter or with Cod Milt, Salmon Roe and Tofu Refuse.
Another dish not to be missed is the Ishikari Nabe (Salmon Miso Hot Pot), a heart-warming delicacy traditionally served during the winter months in Hokkaido. This simmered dish comprises salmon, seasonal vegetables and Hokkaido potatoes simmered in a savoury miso broth, presenting a harmonious pairing of produce from both land and sea. End the meal on a sweet note with Yubari Melon Jelly, a refreshing treat made from one of the most famous fruits in Hokkaido.
