Sometimes, the beauty of a dish can be found in its simplicity. Often we want more, more more on our plates & end up overlooking the qualities of each individual aspect.
That, that right there, don’t do that here.
This dish is so amazing, it needs time to be enjoyed for what it is & not what else is lacking on the plate. I’ll put it to you this way, we had four chicken breasts, and whilst we were trying to set up the dish for this shot, all three others were completely devoured. It was miso
Some things just can’t be helped. Standing over the kitchen counter, picking up pieces of chicken with our fingers & dipping them into the miso sauce. I know it’s not civilized, but it’s the truth. Sometimes though, that’s the best way to enjoy the things we love. By allowing yourself to do it exactly the way you feel without being tied down by manners or discipline.
I heard once that in India, they eat with their hands so that they can involve all of their senses fully whilst enjoying a meal. Sight, smell, taste, touch. Ok, maybe that’s not all the senses, but four out of five ain’t half bad. Don’t take my word for this though, it may not be true. I did absolutely no research on that fact before I wrote it. There it is, at least I’m honest though.
I highly recommend eating miso chicken the way we ate it though. Yea, I’m all for sitting down & having nice meal, but this way was pretty frickin’ good too.
