These recipes come from New England culinary legend Hiroshi Hayashi. For many years he owned wildly popular restaurants in Boston and Peterborough, New Hampshire; these days he teaches the culinary arts at The Monadnock School for Natural Cooking & Philosophy. His dressings are available locally for purchase, but they disappear from the shelves pretty fast.
