NOBU InterContinental Hong Kong continues its GOURMET TOUR OF JAPAN series with episode 5 – Harvest in Aomori from September 12 – October 22.

Executive Chef Sean Mell and Executive Sushi Chef Arakai Kaazunari have prepared set lunch and dinner menus showcasing autumn produce from the Aomori Prefecture, located in the Tōhoku region of northern Japan. Chefs Mell and Kaazunari have selected seasonal products such as awabi (abalone), saba (mackerel), uni (sea urchin), hotate (scallops) and black garlic to showcase in their menus. Some dishes will also feature Aomori apples, which constitute over 50% of the apple market in Japan. The apple harvest season starts in September.

The chefs are using traditional Aomori cooking methods such as kaiyaki, simmering seafood in the shell, and towada barayaki, grilled beef with sliced onion and soy sauce served on a hot plate, combined with Nobu's new-style cuisine.
