Kiritanpo; What better way to warm the body and soul on freezing cold days than with delicious “comfort food”?

Scrumptious Winter: Iburigakko & Kiritanpo Hot Pot

Grilling kiritanpo over an open hearth.

Kiritanpo, mashed, steamed rice in the shape of a cylinder, is a specialty that is welded strongly on the identity of Akita Prefecture. In the past, kiritanpo was an easy-to-carry preserved food used primarily by hunters. Today, however, the delicacy is cut into bitesized pieces and served in a hot pot with chicken and a variety of vegetables.

Iburigakko

Iburigakko, smoked radish, is one of the most famous pickled vegetables in Tohoku. Smoked with cherry blossom wood then preserved with salt and malted rice, the appetizer gives off a fabulous aroma and goes perfectly with any variety of sake.Grilling kiritanpo over an open hearth.
