      arrangement

      The white flesh of the fugu mimics in texture and color the petals of the chrysantemum; also, the risk of the lethal poison to both the chef and the patron!

        Thanks for a delicious reminder of fugu puffer fish chrysanthemums, Chibi san ! Yes, they are gourgeus to look at.
        Now they have even grown some fugu with less poison ... and promote fugu eating a lot more ...
