In Imitation

original udon the view my version

as if trying to make up for all those warmer days, old man winter has been bringing day after day of frigid temperatures and bitter winds.  with all that, my motorcycle has been placed in hibernation– for the time being.

but to at least get a taste of touring as i huddle at home, i’ve been recreating an udon dish i had on one of my trips to tokigawa.  this regional version uses a wide, flat noodle called ‘himokawa‘ and is served in a broth with locally grown vegetables and garnished with negi and yuzu peel.  it’s very much like yamanashi’s hōtō and has quickly become one of our favorite winter meals.

    Looks delicious and perfect for a winter meal. Is miso the liquid ingredient? I love wide noodles.
