Dining With the Chef

Season 3, Episode 43 of 52

In this two-part episode, host Yu Hayami visits the Tango region of Kyoto Prefecture, known as the "back room of Kyoto" and home to many developments in Japanese cuisine over the years. This region has long enjoyed incredible natural beauty and bounty from both land and sea, such as Amanohashidate - considered one of Japan's three most beautiful views - as well as outstanding foods like premium "taiza-gani" snow crab, and Tango's unparalleled koshihikari rice. In the second half of Yu's visit, she visits chef Yukinori Yoshioka, who has recently become a secret sensation in the gourmet world for his focus on dishes that can only be enjoyed in the Tango region. She takes a look at some of his dishes that rely on exceptional local ingredients, such as female snow crab and Tango beef, for a new style of Kyoto Cuisine.
