In Okinawa, legends have it that “Food is medicine. ” and ”Eat local food and fix the health with what you eat”.
This is original scenery of the foods related China’s legend “Food is medicine” and Yamato’s legend “Body and land can’t be inseparable.
The origin of the name “Akasakatantei” comes from “Ryutanike”, the moat of Shuri Castle.
Ryutanike has an ancient event that the King of Ryukyu had entertained Chinese delegate with a floating boat in the pond. It is said that imperial cuisine of Okinawa has developed from it.
In knowing as the Okinawa dishes generally, the homemade foods in postwar days of the war were emphasized.
But during the Ryukyu Dynasty, the chefs called “Houchu(包厨)” had been active. There had been hospitality food in limited class though.
Unfortunately, Okinawan food lost the hope of development into Kaiseki like in Kyoto, Osaka, Kanazawa and Tokyo(Edo) because of misfortunes of the collapse of Ryukyu Dynasty.
It is an opening of Akasakatantei that let it connect quitted history.
“Okinawa-Kaiseki (Okinawa tea-ceremony dishes)” was born to add tequniques of Kaiseki to Okinawa ingredients.
