is doing another totally cool Japanese food event
this weekend. Tomorrow at Zinc Details
on Fillmore ― at a party to promo the biodegradable paper dishes from Japanese company Wasara
― Peko-Peko's Sylvan Mishima Brackett is preparing fresh bamboo shoots. They're shoots Brackett gathered himself in Livermore, from a 2-acre grove with several bamboo varieties. Turns out a retired bamboo cultivator has been tending the grove for a couple of decades, and he invited Brackett in to gather the young spring shoots.
He'll be preparing them three ways tomorrow: in rice, fried with pork and panko, and simmered with wakame. Drop-dead cool details after the jump.
Peko-Peko Fresh Bamboo Shoot Lunch
