Summer Squash Salad
🌿 🌼 🌿 🌼 🌿
Zucchini and Yellow Crookneck Squash
Burrata, Radish, Lemon, Red Chile, Pistachios, Edible Flowers
Sometimes it’s nice to serve a salad sans lettuce. Here, bountiful and seasonal summer squash step in for the ubiquitous mixed lettuces. Fresh and light, the salad is dressed simply with lemon juice and good olive oil.
Thinly sliced radish adds crunch and peppery notes, while cilantro leaves add the herbal character. A ball of burrata makes the salad fabulous with its mozzarella milky, grassy, floral notes and oozy creamy center. A few edible flowers make this salad even more summery.

The first course includes his famous chicken liver pâté with toasted baguette, radishes from the garden with Maldon sea salt and European-style butter, cornichons and cocktail onions.

🐙 Octopus Carpaccio, Nobu-Style 🐙
Fish Roe, Jalapeño Dressing, Cabbage Radish Salad
The inspiration for this eye-catching carpaccio dish came from an old image of Octopus Carpaccio at Nobu Shoreditch Restaurant, London. Captivated by the purple and white octopus coins in a sea of spring-green, I turned to Nobu Matsuhisa’s beautiful book “Nobu West” for his piquant jalapeño-garlic dressing recipe which completely revved up the chilled octopus’ sweet ocean-y flavors.
Fish roe added an insane pop of color, salty notes, and a contrasting crunchy texture. Finely diced jalapeño brought a bit more heat and excitement to the party. ありがとうシェフ Thank you, Chef!
