Takenoko or bamboo shoots are the edible sprouts that appear briefly in Spring across Asia. Best harvested in the morning, they are revered for their taste, texture and symbolism. Preparation involves long cooking to destroy its natural toxins. In Japan rice bran - called nuka - and dried red chile - togarashi -is often included when cooking. #タケノコ#bamboo#bambooshoot#ricebran#米ぬか
I gotta get this guy professionally sharpened. It's seen some shit. Looking for a perfect mirror edge and needle tip to match the beauty of the rest of the blade. I love this knife and need to spoil it. Any suggestions on who does it best?
