hokuriku series: ishikawa

The Essence of Japan events launched in 2022, with the aim of presenting the best of Japan.
For the fourth installment of the events we are spotlighting the arts and crafts of the Hokuriku region and its three prefectures. Following the Fukui part held with great success in February 2024, the Ishikawa event will take place this summer.

Chef-owner Toshiya Ikehayata from L’Atelier de NOTO in Ishikawa, who conveys the allures of Noto through his cuisine, and Wajima-lacquerware artist Akito Akagi will gather at Palace Hotel Tokyo to present a special dinner with the hotel Executive Chef Masatoshi Saito.

Akagi will create a lacquer vessel for this event on which the warm appetizer will be served, and guests will be able to take home as a memento of the evening.

The Hokuriku series of Essence of Japan will conclude with Toyama in early 2025.

event details

Chef-owner Toshiya Ikehata gained experience at the renowned French restaurant CALENDRIER at Osaka and Michelin-starred restaurants in Bourgogne, France, before opening L’Atelier de NOTO in Wajima, Ishikawa. The full-course dinner for this event will be a collaboration between Chef Ikehata and Executive Chef Masatoshi Saito from Palace Hotel Tokyo featuring seafoods and vegetables of Noto, which is said to be a treasure trove of ingredients nurtured by its rich natural environment.

Sweets related to Ishikawa also complement the dinner; the dessert is an ice cream made from rice cultivated with BONEARTH fertilizer by the ceramic manufacturer Nikko Company based in Hakusan, Ishikawa. Recycling broken tableware, the sustainable fertilizer is a first of its kind in the world. For mignardises, Japanese sweets from Yoshihashi confectionery founded in 1947 in Kanazawa, Ishikawa will be served.
