Dine with Nobu Matsuhisa himself

Posted by Miss B On January - 19 - 2011

With a celebrity co-owner (Robert De Niro) and star guestlists at most of their locations it is fair to say that Nobu is a place to see and be seen. While a lot of Belle’s will have ticked off blackened cod in miso, how many of you can say that you have met the famous Nobu Matsuhisa himself? Well now is your chance as the chef is flying in to Europe to host three intimate unique dining experience in the private dining room at Nobu, London. This is a rare opportunity to hear Nobu San speak in person about the tradition, design, and creation of his world class cuisine, whist experiencing the taste of the very finest in Umami dishes.

When humans eat, they use all of their senses – sight, hearing, smell and touch – to form general judgments about their food. Taste however, is the most influential in determining how delicious a food is. Conventionally, it has been thought that our sense of taste is comprised of four basic, or ‘primary’, tastes, which cannot be replicated by mixing together any of the other primaries: sweet, sour, salt and bitter. However, a further primary taste is recognized: Umami.

Umami has been described as a round savory taste that prompts the mouth to water with satisfaction. Its discovery has fascinated scientists. Its power, captivated generations over thousands of years.

The Greek philosopher Aristotle cited four basic tastes we now know in western culture as early as 350BC. It is Japanese culture however, that adds a fifth sense Umami to the others and it is the fine science of food combination that is celebrated at Nobu.

The pairing of Sake and Umami will occur through the exclusive menu with highlights such as King Crab Tempura with Amazu Ponzu and Grilled Wagyu Steak with Jerusalem artichokes, Nameko Mushroom and Sansho pepper sauce, truly optimize and harness the flavours. Each outstanding course of the exclusive menu is accompanied by complimentary Sake to counterpoint the flavours of that dish.

The events will be held on Friday 11, Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 February 2011, at Nobu Old Park Lane, London for a very limited number of guests. Guests are invited to arrive at 7.30pm prompt for an 8.00pm seated dinner with Nobu San and will be guided personally through an epic journey of unforgettable tastes, by the world’s most celebrated chef.

Spaces are limited to just 60 seats for each evening and reservations can be made in advance. Tickets for this unique event are priced at £260 per person.
