cooking process

The distinctive fragrance of coriander is a staple of dishes all across Asia. Added to French-style corn potage it creates a marvelously unique dish. If bok choy isn't available, substitute spinach. It'll be just as delicious.

1 bok choy stalk
2 oz., or approx. 1 large bunch, of coriander leaves
50cc water
2 oz. naganegi

1 can sweet cream-style corn
1 tablespoon butter
50 - 60cc fresh cream
Salt
Pepper
2 tablespoons small-size tapioca
