Otto's friend Elsa has a catering service, WASHOKU we've used in the past but recently they went from good to excellent.

She went to Japan and came back much the wiser :-) She and her partner brought in various dishes which really impressed.

From the salad, mains, to the desert, everything was top notch.

They make a Japanese minestrone which has a very clear and delicate vegetable flavour. I'm not a fan of pumpkin but with this soup they managed to define the balance of flavours so well that the pumpkin turned out to be the slightly sweet, nutty flavour which sealed the deal.

The pork, slow cooked to perfection, melted in your mouth. The cabbage that accompanied it was a wonderful contrast to the soy and garlic of the meat.

I didn't get to taste the Salmon...I was busy enjoying what I had on my plate and simply missed it :p It's rare to find someone who knows how to combine ingredients in new ways to produce something which satisfies all your expectations and yet goes a step beyond.

I applaud them for their skill and highly recommend their service.
