In Japan, Shaved Ice Goes Gourmet

YouTube description:

Kakigori is a traditional Japanese shaved ice dessert dating back to the late 1800s. Originally meant for Japan’s elite, today it’s become a summer staple for everyone. Some, like chef Aya Eguchi, still abide by ancient methods of preparation, using ice frozen naturally by winter weather. Others, like Kumiko Ishibashi, adjust their creations depending on the temperature, while chefs like Kumiko Ishibashi have been innovating on the form, developing new flavors like matcha kakigori. But regardless of the texture, flavor, or weather, kakigori is delicious in every form.
