The Nine Course Meal is a dish invented by Eishi Tsukasa for the Moon Banquet Festival. It consists of nine separate courses which together form a dinner course.

Description Edit

During the Moon Banquet Festival, Eishi set up booth in the Uptown Area, though he only prepared three tables at a time. He made a Nine Course Meal, with each dish creating a distinctive blend of flavors and fitting in with the rest of the dishes. Eishi states that this natural ability to bring out those strengths is because he does not place "himself" in those dishes. By concentrating on bringing out the goodness of the food and voiding his presence from the dish, Eishi creates a paradoxical state of expressing himself in his dishes without actually doing so.[1]

Some of the dishes include:

  • An Amuse-bouche consisting of sakura shrimp tuiles served with sauce
  • A lime-based frozen Dessert garnished with lime slice and mint
  • A molded seafood Appetizer including scallops and sea urchin. Garnished with multiple sauces, mini vegetables, and flower petals.
  • A red snapper Fish Course served with sauces and fruit.
  • A Main Course consisting of cubed steak and baby romanesco over flower petals with mushroom demi-glace.
  • Bouillabaisse
  • Café et petit fours

Real Facts Edit

An Amuse-bouche (/əˌmjuːzˈbuːʃ/; French: [aˌmyzˈbuʃ]) or Amuse-gueule (UK: /əˌmjuːzˈɡɜːrl/, US: /-ˈɡʌl/; French: [aˌmyzˈɡœl]) is a single, bite-sized hors d’œuvre. Amuse-bouches are different from appetizers in that they are not ordered from a menu by patrons but are served gratis and according to the chef's selection alone. These, often accompanied by a complementing wine, are served both to prepare the guest for the meal and to offer a glimpse into the chef's approach to the art of cuisine. And is French for Mouth Amuser.[2]
