I like to include a dish during the coming American holidays that remind me of home. This year, I am going to have Kinpira gobo - stir fried burdock and carrots seasoned with soy, mirin and a little sugar. There is a chopped chili pepper in there to give it some heat. I love this dish cold and warm. Here is the story about Kinpira gobo that I wrote for Zester Daily.
