Soboro donburi

Categorised in: | Link of this article

One of my son’s favorite foods is Soboro Donburi. Soboro means “stir-fry ingredients until being scrambled” in Japanese. You just need egg and meat. That’s all! I usually use chicken but you can also use pork and beef if you prefer. Since this recipe is so simple and easy, I cook this dish whenever my son wants. You add sugar in egg so this dish looks like between sweets and meal. (I think that’s why he likes!)
If you want to add more color (let’s say Green color ) and nutrition, I recommend to add boiled and chopped spinach, mitsuba trefoil, green beans, asparagus etc. How about decorating them between chicken and egg? Please try it out!

Miso dengaku with konnyaku

Categorised in: | Link of this article

In this video, I’ll introduce how to make Miso dengaku with konnyaku. Do you know Konnyaku? Konnyaku is made of special potato and has gummy texture. The only nutrition is fiber so it is used as a diet food. I hope you are available to buy this ingredient at the asian supermarkets in your town. In this recipe, we use a dark brown miso which has rich and thick saltiness. This miso sauce has rich flavor and goes well with various ingredients like tofu, seafoods and vegetables etc. Enjoy the video and please try it out!!!

Happy New Year of 2020!
In this vlog, I will show you how my family spend on new year’s day and also talk about my plan for 2020!

How was the year of 2019 for you?
So many things happened for both business and private life.
TOP1 Gave birth for second child.
TOP2 Got the honor of the BEST cooking class in Japan by TripAdvisor AGAIN !
TOP3 Published the cookbook (https://yjc.tokyo/store/)

My daughter became 2 months old and eats well, sleeps well and moves so well! I woke up several times at night for nursing her. But thanks to my family’s support, I could restart my class so quickly. Special thanks to my husband!

I hope to teach Japanese cooking for many more guests from abroad and film recipe videos to pursue my mission!
Thank you for your strong support, everyone!
Have a peaceful, warm and yummy(?!) new year of 2020!

Seasonal snacks : winter 2019

Categorised in: | Link of this article

In this vlog, I will introduce seasonal snacks that I found at convini (convenience stores). Convini is one of the interesting places where you can find new products and foods. I don’t go to convini often but I found it might be fun just to go there and pick some limited sweets and snacks of the season. Hopefully, I would be able to film this series every season. (Wish me luck! 🙂 What was your favorite snacks and sweets? Please let me know!! Enjoy the video! YUCa
