I would like to introduce the current project by Kanazawa Biiki Project I introduced last time. I first met Mr. Agu through the tea ceremony with Ms Kyoko Okamoto as my cultural event - JAPAN FOCUS last June. This time I met Mr. Agu and the Italian couple, Mateo and Silvia in London. I was very impressed the unique idea of connecting Japan and the world through food culture, when I heard about his 'CASA Project'. I would like to support this project and I wish the very success in the process!!!
'CASA Italian Kaisei Kappo' is absolutely unique because it has an amazing fusion of authentic Italian food and Japanese style 懐石 (kaiseki) +会席 (kaiseki) and 割烹 (kappo).
-懐石 (kaiseki) means the meal which is served before tea ceremony.
Its spirit-wabi&sabi is expressed in the dish. Three important elements are 1 using the seasonal ingredients, 2 maximising the enjoyment of the flavour and texture of the ingredients and 3 serving with full of warmth-omotenashi.
-会席 (kaiseki) has the similar concept as course dishes in the UK. There are more than 9 courses and customers enjoy the moment with drinks, food and conversation in their own timing. The course dishes are normally decorated nicely with the feeling of the season.
-割烹 (kappo) is a high quality restaurant which serves kaiseki （会席）meals. Normally, customers can enjoy speaking to the chef and there is a very warm atmosphere.
また、【kanazawa biiki project CASA】は、 より広い意味において金沢の 美食の愉しみ を深め、この街のさらなる魅力づくりに貢献したいと願っています。この小さなお店から「感動の環」が広がることを夢見て【CASA_支援基金と求人のお願い】を、金沢、日本国内、そして世界に向けて呼びかけているところです。＊詳しいご案内資料（PDF）は、こちらのページで入手して頂けます。https://www.machidukuri.net/
Mr. Agu, Mateo and Silvia are keen on contributing to appreciating for the beauty of food and creating the attractive city in Kanazawa. They dream about spreading the impressive movement from the restaurant into your deep heart. If you would like to support them, please see this link. https://www.machidukuri.net/
