History of Mikariba-yaki


More than 300 years ago, the Satake Kita family, the owner of Kakunodate, ruled the entire Kitaura area, including Kakunodate.

According to the 21st head of the Satake Kita family, when the war was over, he led the people of the family and went out to hunt around the current cities of Semboku, Misato, and Daisen. ..

At that time, falconry was mainly used by falconers, and birds such as ducks and pheasants were often caught.
The duck and pheasant caught in this way were sorted on the spot, grilled with Japanese pepper miso, enjoyed Yuyama cuisine, and banquets were held.
He sometimes procured seasonal vegetables from neighboring farmers and used them as garnish.

The first Satake Kita family was from the Takakura family, a public house in Kyoto, and the second wife was the daughter of the Sanjo Nishi family, who lived on a broad and profound public family culture.

If you unravel the ancient documents, you can see that he loved the seasons through food, enjoyed the wild plants in the territory, what he got from hunting, and the delicacies of the mountains and the sea.
The food culture of the Satake Kita family has spread to the townspeople and rural areas, and local food has been nurtured.

From these stories of the head of the family, "Satake Kita Family Tradition / Mikariba Yaki" has been revived in modern times.
