Dave Chang's Chawanmushi
The umami essence of this savory Japanese egg custard comes from dashi, a stock made from dried kelp (kombu). Compared to our Silky Chinese Steamed Egg Custard, this version uses a higher liquid to egg ratio for an even silkier custard. Chef's hats off to Peter Serpico, former Momofuku chef, for crafting the perfect proportion of dashi to egg: 7 eggs per 1 quart of liquid!
