Chef Yoshihiro Narisawa celebrates the 10th anniversary of his Les Créations de Narisawa restaurant in Tokyo, today.
The restaurant, which serves nouvelle cuisine with a Japanese edge, took the top spot on Asia's 50 Best Restaurants list in February 2013 with Narisawa at the time saying he saw all white and was overcome by joy.
Each dish at Narisawa's restaurant tells a story with the chef's creations carrying philosophy, meaning and tradition. Tasting menus are designed to highlight the seasons.
The chef is celebrated worldwide and to mark his own restaurant's celebrations of operating for 10-years Narisawa has served a special 10-course tasting menu throughout the year. Dishes are given rather basic titles, Gift from the Garden, Gift from the Sea, allowing guests to maintain an open mind towards the plates they are about to receive.
Here's an FDL video interview with chef Narisawa. Here's some recipes from the chef.
