Cuisine of Yamagata
Local Specialty Yamagata
The main dish is codfish, the king of winter fish in the Japan sea, stewed with grated Japanese radish. A tinge of sweetness in the grated radish helps bring out the refined flavor of the white fish. For rice, a brand specially selected from among the cultivars of Tsuyahime , which won the special A prize in the Rice Taste Test Ranking for four consecutive years, is used.
