Baby Food in Japan (7-8 months)

Categorised in: | Link of this article

In this vlog, I will introduce Baby food (7-8 months) in Japan. In Japan, babies start eating baby food around 5 months old. As a mom of 2 children, I’ve been enjoying making baby food (and also kids meal) for almost 5 years now. My daughter became 8 months old so I decided to film what she eats now. I hope you enjoy watching this video and try it out!

Goya chanpuru

Categorised in: | Link of this article

Do you know Goya Chanpuru (ゴーヤチャンプル)? Goya is a bitter melon mainly produced in Okinawa prefecture, which is located in the southern part of Japan. Goya is actually a dialect from the tropical island. Goya has a bitter flavor yet it’s rich in a number of vitamins and minerals (i.e. vitamins B, C, E and K). Goya also has various health benefits like “lower blood sugar levels in the body”, “blood purifying and detoxifying qualities” and “reduce conditions such as acne, eczema and psoriasis” etc. Chanpuru is also a dialect from Okinawa and that means “mix and stir-fry”. Cuisine from Okinawa use a lot of pork and this is one of them. There are many types of Goya chanpuru, like the one with fish. Tofu plays an important role for this dish. This iconic dish of Okinawa cuisine (Ryukyu-ryori) has a simple ingredients and contains high in nutrition, especially protein. Enjoy this well-balanced food!

I always ask my cooking class guests about what their favorite Japanese food beyond Sushi, Tempura and Ramen. One of the popular dish among my guests is Tonkatsu (とんかつ、トンカツ、豚カツ…Yes, they all mean the same dish!) “Ton” means pork, “Katsu” means Cutlet. I understand that some of you cannot eat this dish because of food restrictions and religious reasons. But no worries! You can substitute with beef, chicken, seafood or even vegetables! The recipe to make cutlet is almost same, so please enjoy this crispy savory dish. The tip of making delicious Tonkatsu is to use Japanese bread crumbs called panko and put Tonkatsu in a pan before frying oil gets hot! For the sauce, people usually pour special Tonkatsu sauce. This is Japanese-style thick and starchy sauce made of worcester sauce etc. Since Tonkatsu is such an oily dish, don’t forget to add some vegetables aside (Usually, thinly shredded cabbage). Enjoy Japanese cooking!

Gyoza making with kids

Categorised in: | Link of this article

Cooking is relaxing. That’s what I always feel while cooking. The other day, I cooked with my son and we made Gyoza (pot stickers) from scratch.
Homemade gyoza pastry has special chewy texture that you cannot taste from premade gyoza pastry. I like homemade better, of course!

In my Gyoza making online class, I will teach how to make Gyoza pastry from scratch! If you are interested in, please check the ingredients/utensils you need to prepare beforehand and book your seat from here!

By the way, Gyoza making is the perfect activity to cook with kids!
