Hot Pot Sundays

December is finally here upon us and what better way to stay warm than
a little Hot Pot.
This version I made isn't your typical spicy Szechuan style Hotpot.
More subtle in flavor.
Keywords : Dashi, Umami,
Probably a little unorthodox because I'm using a lot of Japanese
cooking principles to extract the umami from the ingredients. But that
said, some of the spices I used are influenced by Chinese Herbal
Medicine. Ingredients that are thought to help blood circulation and
keep a body warm in the winter.

Hot Pot : Chicken Drumsticks, Shiitake, Ginger, Onions, Nappa Cabbage,
Chinese 5 Spice

When I serve the dish, I will accompany with a little Yuzu Kosho or
Singapore style Shrimp Chili Paste.
