MADAI SNACKS – SEA FALCON TG SPOON
A few years ago I picked up a set of “Madai” Hashioki (chop stick rest) in Hon-Kawagoe, Japan. These small ceramic chop stick rests sit amongst my quite vast collection of other sea life related ceramic dinnerware.
In Japan, Madai (Sea Bream or otherwise known as Snapper in Australia) is prized for its flavour since the Jomon period (14500 BCE), with Madai bones being found at archeological sites throughout Japan. Traditionally it is eaten as a New Year’s Celebration and special events like weddings. In Toyohama, Aichi Prefecture, every July the Tai-Matsuri or Sea Bream festival is held, huge Madai structures are made from bamboo and cloth and carried into the sea to pray for maritime safety and an abundant catch.
Though only a small part of the image the Madai Hashioki are a reference to the Sea Falcon TG Spoon, which is a great micro jig for targeting Madai or Snapper.
