We Idaho fteePress, Tuesday, February 4,1975/ he skier as cool,'Sturdy-oak' creates great dishes By Hana Untaul · NEW YORK - (NBA) - In · Japanese the word for sturdy .durable oak translates into ."kashiwa." Performing true to h i s f a m i l y n a m e , H a n k - Kashiwa. 25, is a sturdy oak on Ihe ski slopes. Currently, this ·New York Cily-born Japanese- American ski racer ranks second on the World Pro Skiing Tour. s ·But skiing is only one of Hank's active pursuits. A cooking enthusiast, he's concocted a personal interpretation of traditional Japanese cuisine to suit the American palate and to m a k e use of i n g r e d i e n t s available to cooks all over the United Slates. Although hundreds of hours of his growing years' were spenl on the slopes, Hank also found athletic outlets in ballet, golf and waterskiing, avocalions he still indulges in. However, skiing and cooking have become serious enterprises for him in his 20s. Come this fall he says he plans to open a restaurant -named Kashiwa. naturally -- in Steamboat Springs. Colo., where he now makes his home. II was in Ihe rugged Colorado bi'ef country, where he feels the cowboy spirit still flourishes, thai Hank was inspired to promote traditional Japanese recipes. However, he is doing this wilh 3 twist because he cooks them in a manner his western friends would like. The result. Hank says, is Japanese cooking "slightly modified to the American lasle buds." He explains his special louch as meaning ihe use of less soy sauce, cooking vegetables, meat and fish a little longer than is Ihe Oriental custom and using just enough spices to enhance rather than bury Ihe taste of tlie meat since tasty beef is a Western fact of life. Only time will tell whether he is as successful as a "sturdy oak" the family today A rrangement of the month is plant material collage in the culinary area as lie is proving to be in skiing competition Hank's recipes are quick and require a m i n i m u m of preparation. Fried rice, for instance, is simple to make with leftover rice anil bits of meal. Easily adaptable for large quantities, it's ideal for a lunch or side dish FRIED RICE 3 cup* long-grain rice, cooked 1/2 cup diced meat (chicken, lamb, pork, ham o; beef) 1/2 cup chopped green onions (just the green part) 1 egg beaten Soy sauce (2 or 3 tablespoons) Salt and pepper Monosotfium glutnmale (optional, lo taste) Saute green onion and meat in b u t l e r or margarine.

Ky Winnie Johnson fiarly Morning Gardeners NAMPA - Celia Day, Caldwell, is the arlist who created " W i n t e r Beach," a collage, for the Flower A r r a n g e m e n t of the M o n t h series of the Early Morning Gardeners. In lerms of flower arranging a collage means Ihe work is a design of various u n r e l a l e d malerials including some plant m a t e r i a l f a s t e n e d to a background. The objects or fragments arc fastened on a solid panel so the design can be hung on a wail. This arl form is crealed in very low relief yet with a Ihree dimensional effect. "Winter Beach" is noteworthy for its creative handling of texture, rhythm and balance. It is made in )ow relief with a startling effect of great depth. Texture varies from the very rough coral formations in the tower-right corner to Ihe highly polished glass balls w h i c h seemingly float in Ihe'upper area. Each object presents a different texture. Thc blending of colors goes from the gold splattered paint on Ihe lower half which extends up Ihe left side, Ihe Ian loncs of the wealhered wood, (he brown weed heads, bone white interlaced wilh buff slreaks in the coral and shells, lo Ihe sharply contrasting tones of blue of the glass balls. This vivid color contrast not only emphasizes Ihe texture variations but gives the whole a r r a n g e m e n t a dynamic balance as opposed to a static balance. The placement of (he objects is so made as to creale a rhythmic line design. Tlii'rc are curves at all angles, many of "WINTKH REACH" is the title of a collage created by Celia Day, Caldwell, for (he flower arrangement of the month series for (he Early Morning Gardeners.
