Nadaman At Kowloon Shangri-La, Hong Kong Presents Feng Shui Fortune Sushi

May 30, 2014 Food & Beverage No Comments Email Email

New Japanese native Sushi Chief Chef Furuyama Masami from Nadaman Japanese Restaurant at Kowloon Shangri-La, Hong Kong presents brand new Feng Shui Fortune Sushi.

Feng Shui Fortune Hand Roll Set lInspired by the early works on Chinese feng shui and Taoism, which were brought to Japan, the fundamental concept of Japanese feng shui is thus built on the philosophy of yin and yang and the five elements with reference to I Ching (Book of Changes).  Yin and yang are dualistic forces with an interdependent relationship.  Expanding on this concept are the five elements – wood, fire, earth, metal and water – which regulate, either complementing or counteracting, one another.  All these energies must be well balanced to maintain harmony in the universe, as well as optimal mental and physical health for human beings.

Crucial and influential to Japanese culinary culture, the five elements form the traditional principles – go-mi (five flavours), go-shoku (five colours), go-kan (five senses) and more – in creating authentic, healthy Japanese meals.  Emphasising the presence of five colours, the Japanese are also dedicated to balancing the flavours and textures of the five elements to assure both visual appeal and use of the five senses for a pleasant dining indulgence.

Feng Shui Fortune Roll lChef Furuyama sees the importance of five colours and has specially designed a series of Feng Shui Fortune Sushi Set that demonstrates a high level of haute cuisine and food culture.  Through his new sushi delicacies that symbolise the taste of happiness, he extends his warm wishes to his diners for reaching a balanced and harmonious mental and physical state.

Ruled by the philosophy of the five elements, each of Chef Furuyama’s creations has incorporated hues of green, red, yellow, white and black in relation to wood, fire, earth, metal and water, respectively.  Listed below are the creations with their main ingredients to reflect the five elements:
