Lotus root, tamagoyaki and salted salmon are not well known in other country.
Having grown up eating lotus root, I never paused to appreciated the food from a biological and culinary standpoint. Sunk into the mud of a pond or river bottom, lotus root is actually the stem of the plant. Growing as long as four feet, the stems rises out of the water and ends in the elegant flowers that are so revered in Buddhist and Hindu cultures. Even in harsh temperatures, lotus flowers maintain a fairly precise temperature range, which is perhaps why the Chinese call lotus root a "cooling" food, consumed to restore balance to the body.
