Chef Shota’s Oxtail With Spring Onions Recipe With Photo


Just five days after the grand opening of the soon-to-be karaage hotspot of Seattle, COVID-19 forced Chef Shota Nakajima to close the doors of his new restaurant, Taku. This would be a challenging feat for any chef or restaurateur to overcome, but fortunately for Chef Shota, culinary excellence is in his blood. “Both my grandfathers on both sides worked in the restaurant industry in Japan,” he told POPSUGAR. “I’ve been working in restaurants since high school.”

“In the United States, over one-third of all available food goes uneaten through loss or waste. When food is tossed aside, so too are opportunities for improved food security, economic growth, and environmental prosperity,” according to the Department of Agriculture.

How often do you come home from the supermarket or the farmers market and throw out the leafy green tops of beets, carrots or leeks?
