Several weeks ago, we got a note from our friend Eric. It began:

Real sukiyaki is something to behold. Like shabu-shabu, the raw ingredients (thin sliced beef, napa cabbage, shiitake, tofu, shirataki noodles) are brought to the table and the cooking happens on a hot plate right in front of you.

This is key, as it cools the food down and adds delicious richness.
