Tanabata decoration in the classroom!🎋

Legend has it that Vega and Altair, who are separated by the Milky Way, are allowed to meet only once a year on the night of Tanabata or July 7th. It is said that if you write your wish on a tanzaku (a strip of paper) and hang it on a bamboo grass, your wish will be granted.

My son brought special bamboo grass with Tanzaku and it seems that my son wishes to be like a mom =me ?!

Tonjiru | Miso soup with veggie and pork

Categorised in: | Link of this article

Tonjiru is one of the comfort food here in Japan. Ton means pork and Shiru (Jiru) means soup. I like this miso based soup dish with so many reasons. Traditional miso soup usually contains 2-3 ingredients only. But from the photo, you’ll see there are so many veggies in this soup. So, you will be full easily just to eat this Tonjiru. Of course, if you cannot eat pork, you can skip it or you can use chicken. Without meat flavor, this soup has rich flavors from veggies.

Tonjiru reminds me of my youthful days. I remember that I used to eat this dish outside with everyone at various events. And the most unforgettable memory was when my family visited our grandparents’ house in the country side of Fukushima, we cooked Tonjiru with cousins and relatives and eat outside together! After eating, we all had fresh water melon from their field and played fireworks at night. It was so much fun and one of the precious memories for me! Yes, Tonjiru is definitely special dish for me forever! I hope you enjoy this dish!!

Good news, everyone!!!
YUCa’s Japanese Cooking received a TripAdvisor’s certificate of excellence 2019!!! This is the 4th time to receive this amazing certificate.

Some of you might know this story already from my first cookbook that we launched in April but I only ran one class a month at the beginning. Then, thanks to the word of mouth, more guests contacted and joined my class little by little. And my class was chosen the No.1 cooking class in Japan 2018 by international travelers . It all happened from your reviews on TripAdvisor.

Thank you for your kind, uplifting and warm reviews, everyone! I strongly believe the power of “Word of mouth”. ✨

YUCa’s Japanese Cooking will pursue our mission “Connect Japan and overseas countries through the Japanese foods and lifestyle” to and continue giving more values to YOU!

THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!

Dorayaki

Categorised in: | Link of this article

How many Japanese sweets can you list up? There are so many sweets here in Japan. Anmitsu (Japanese style parfait), Yohkan (Agar agar jelly made of red bean paste), Mochi (I assume mochi ice cream is popular overseas), Daifuku (Several flavored mochi with normally red bean paste inside), Nerikiri (special sweets usually at tea ceremony which is made of mochi and white bean paste), Taiyaki (fish shape waffle with filling inside), Kudzu mochi, Warabi mochi, Manjyu, Dango, Senbei (Rice crackers) etc. This Dorayaki is one of the famous and traditional sweets that people love! Some of you might know the Japanese cartoon Doraemon. His favorite food is Dorayaki, of course.
The secret of Dorayaki is to use honey. Thanks to honey, the texture of this mini pancake is moist and delicious! Enjoy Japanese cooking!!
