Kirstin: A long time ago. In a distant galaxy before Lockdown (ie. this past January). We reviewed Rukmini Iyer’s Quick Roasting Tin. We loved everything about it; the design, the simplicity of the recipes and the yumminess of the results. Before the month was out, I had already pre-ordered her next book. THE ROASTING TIN AROUND THE WORLD. This week it arrived. And THIS was the recipe I most wanted to try.
Why? Because one of my favourite restaurants in London is Shackfuyu in Soho. All the umami feels are squeezed into each and every one of the delicious dishes in the small space. From the aubergine to the grilled salmon fillet; I am literally salivating as I think of all the feels from the flavours. And of course it is currently closed. But when I saw this recipe I KNEW it would have the same impact on me. And it did. Every last morsel in the tray was devoured. ALL OF IT. I am also on the lookout for more miso so I can make it again. Brilliant! And thank you Rukmini for giving me some of those umami feels in our kitchen.
