I returned to Meidi-ya this evening to buy fresh wasabi.
Last week while browsing in the supermarket, I found fresh wasabi. The plant. In the chilled food section.
It was about 3 inches long with some leaves. A Rhizome. I think it was about $12. I wasn’t sure what I would do with it, so I left it on the shelf.
I knew it was rare, but I didn’t know what to do with it.
So I left it. I went back to research how or what to do with a fresh wasabi in plant form.
Actually, you just grate it.
So I returned to Meidi-ya a week later. But it was gone.
Fortune favours the prepared.
I could have just bought it first and figured it out later. BUT… I would have deprived some other cook, someone who truly appreciated fresh wasabi from having it. And if it turned out I did not know what to do with it, it would have been a waste.
But now I know. Now I’m prepared.
Fortune, favour me now!
