Episode Description
Tuesday, Jun 19, 2018 - 6:00 AM    "Artisan Edition: Kabayaki (Grilled Unagi Eel)" The theme this episode is kabayaki grilled unagi eel. Chef Saito and Yu Hayami introduce viewers to the traditions of this Japanese favorite, starting with the chef filleting, deboning and butterflying the fish, then putting the meat on skewers, dipping it in a soy sauce-based sauce, and then grilling it until it's perfectly browned and delicious. On this episode, they visit a long-established unagi eel restaurant, where they learn about the impressively complex world of working with unagi eel, and they find out what their saying "three years for skewering, eight years for cutting up, and a lifetime for grilling" means.
