気がつけばもう師走に

気がつけばもう一年の終わり、師走になっていました。
函館のギメルのお客様から、活きのいい立派な鮭が届き、着いたその日に知り合いのシェフに捌いてもらって、社員全員で粕汁と一緒に美味しくいただきました。食は健康の源。皆でたのしく美味しく頂くことで、心も身体も健康になると信じて、毎日の献立には心を砕いています。産地直送の滋味を送って頂けるのは、とても有難く幸せなことです。

今年は未曽有の新型コロナウィルスに世界中が影響され、たいへんな一年でしたが、皆さまが無事に新年を迎えられますよう、心よりお祈り申し上げます。

粕汁

Time does fly and it is December already. However, winter here in Japan is abundant with various delicacies. I am thankful that Gimel is blessed with many wonderful customers. A customer who lives in Hakodate, Hokkaido sent us a fresh salmon. After having it professionally cleaned and filleted by a master chef, we had an awesome lunch of grilled salmon with Sake lee soup, a traditional winter delight. What a treat for all our staff members!!! 
 
I am very careful when considering the lunch menu for our staff dining because I recognize food as the source of energy. Sharing and enjoying good meals with other staff members are absolutely vital for our health, both mentally and physically. We are very grateful for this seasonal delicacy directly delivered from where it’s caught.
 
A devastating pandemic of Covid-19 raged throughout the world during this year. 
However, I wish your new year will be blessed with good health, happiness and joy.
