Peko-Peko Doing Lunch with Local Bamboo Shoots Tomorrow

Categories: Events

Peko-Peko's Sylvan Mishima Brackett harvested the shoots in Livermore.
Peko-Peko is doing another totally cool Japanese food event this weekend. Tomorrow at Zinc Details on Fillmore ― at a party to promo the biodegradable paper dishes from Japanese company Wasara ― Peko-Peko's Sylvan Mishima Brackett is preparing fresh bamboo shoots. They're shoots Brackett gathered himself in Livermore, from a 2-acre grove with several bamboo varieties. Turns out a retired bamboo cultivator has been tending the grove for a couple of decades, and he invited Brackett in to gather the young spring shoots.

He'll be preparing them three ways tomorrow: in rice, fried with pork and panko, and simmered with wakame. Drop-dead cool details after the jump.
