Cook Around Japan "Miyagi":
Kesennuma, the Fishing Port Town

In our Cook Around Japan series, we visit different parts of the country and explore their local foods. For this two-part installment, we're visiting Kesennuma, Miyagi Prefecture. This first episode focuses on Kesennuma Port, where the resilient townspeople have rebuilt the area after countless disasters over the years. One of our regular chefs, Rika Yukimasa, will be visiting this port town, and learning about the simple yet sophisticated techniques used by local chefs to serve freshly caught bonito tuna, Kichiji rockfish, Pacific saury and more.
