Ode To Miso Soup...


I remember reading somewhere that Thomas Keller had said that he wants to serve dishes that leave you wanting one last bite. I have only had that happen to me a few times. I mean, this is America we are talking about here, home of the super-sized plate, where you are never left wanting.

Matsuyama Restaurant leaves you wanting more, even with their miso soup. I remembered the first time I had it. It was summer and I didn't feel well, so bad in fact I didn't want to go out, let alone have sushi, but it was my sous chef #1's fifteenth birthday and well I'm sure you know how that goes. When they brought my soup you know that ah-ha moment when all of a sudden things become crystal clear. That soup did that to me. I was left wanting more and like all really good food you think about how to recreate it, when you are you going to eat it again, and the ever scary... will it be as good the next time I order it? The true definition of a food junkie.

I don't have miso soup often but I trust my pallet and I know this is good soup. My husband and I had it again last night and it was perfect. That's a relief because I hate to order a dish I've been fantasizing about having again and it isn't nearly as good the second time around.

Besides at Matsuyama's you can overhear people talking about.... (scroll down to the next post)

I've been on every kind of crazy eating plan known to man. A couple of years ago I went macrobiotic.

One Sunday dinner, I made miso soup for my family. They've ridden the food rollercoaster with me all these years, so they're a fairly intrepid group. Still, as we sat down to eat and took our first bites, my son -- who was about seven at the time -- ate a bean sprout and said "These noodles are crunchy, Mom." "Yep," I responded.

My daughter scooped up a spoonful of tofu and said "What's this?" "It's like cheese," I said. "Yum, cheese soup!" she declared.

Today, they know what tofu and bean sprouts are and still eat them to varying degrees, thanks to my chicanary.
