art-of-kaiseki_01_826x462

Chef Niki Nakayama of n-naka in Los Angeles takes the art of food to a new level with her kaiseki dishes. Kaiseki is the art form of balancing the taste, texture, appearance, and colors of food. To this end, only fresh seasonal ingredients are used and are prepared in ways that aim to enhance their flavor. Local ingredients are often included as well into the beautiful and intricate platings.

Finished dishes are carefully presented on plates that are chosen to enhance both the appearance and the seasonal theme of the meal. Dishes are beautifully arranged and garnished, often with real leaves and flowers, as well as edible garnishes designed to resemble natural plants and animals.
