The term also refers to the collection of skills and techniques that allow the preparation of such meals and is analogous to Western haute cuisine. Humble Origins Kaiseki today is an elaborate, fine dining affair. Its origins, though, may be surprising: it can be traced back more than a thousand years to the simple, vegetarian fare of Buddhist monks, known as shojin-ryori. In fact, the original kanji characters for kaiseki translate to “bosom-pocket stone,” referencing the monks’ practice of putting warm stones in their robes, near their stomachs, to suppress their hunger. The standard courses While kaiseki meals can vary, there are usually some standard courses served and the chef decides the order. These are: -- Sakizuke, an appetizer served with sake -- Nimono, a simmered dish -- Mukozuke, a sashimi dish -- Hassun, an expression of the season -- Yakimono -- a grilled course -- Hanmono or shokuji, a rice dish. A meticulously crafted, exquisitely served meal. Originally presented to the royal noble classes, a kaiseki meal today could easily hit the triple dollar digits. To practitioners of this haute cuisine, kaiseki is the embodiment of "omotenashi," which means wholehearted hospitality. Its central tenet is to convey respect, making guests feel special and at ease. This means chefs strive for excellence in every detail.
