Various products from Ehime Prefecture were introduced in Seattle throughout the week. At Japanese Consul-General Masahiro Omura’s official residence, community members joined a special Japanese cuisine event last Thursday featuring Ehime. Washington’s sister state, Hyogo Prefecture, also joined the evening to promote its sake. Tomio Moriguchi, whose father came from Ehime, gave a short greeting, and reception foods were served by the consulate’s own chef Kenichiro Tsushima, Takeyuki “Tak” Suetsugu, a Japanese Cuisine Good-will Ambassador, and his students at Columbia Basin’s Culinary Arts in Moses Lake, Wash. A dessert featuring Ehime citrus was provided by Chef Tamas Ronyai, executive chefat Mirabella.
