About

My friend Keiko, from Tokyo, introduced me to burdock root, a slender brown root vegetable that is common in Japanese cuisine. This week, i was happy to find this vegetable at the farmer's market at Union Square. The root has a nutty sweet flavor with a crunch texture that tastes perfect with a bowl of rice and a glass of hot Saki.
