Tidbit du Jour: Tempura Batter


Food historian Dr. Naomichi Ishige: "The wheat-flour batter [of tempura] is called koromo, which means 'clothing'... The 'clothing' should never be like a blanket covering someone who cannot be identified as male or female, but light and translucent, revealing the skin of the wearer." (From "The History and Culture of Japanese Food")
