Jay’s note

I had escabeche in Paris for first time, when I was working TV station. Chef showed me how to prepare it.

I had escabeche in Paris for first time, when I was working TV station. Chef showed me how to prepare it. While we were cooking escabeche, it reminded me “Nanban-zuke”. Nanbanzuke is very similar to escabeche. It might be original dish. Also decades later I visited South America, which were Peru, Bolivia. I had chances to have escabeche in those place too. I guess escabeche is very international dish, and people love chilled sour fish flavor.
