Did you try Japanese-style Hamburg Steak with Ponzu recipe?

Categorised in: | Link of this article

Do you enjoy my Japanese-style Hamburg Steak with Ponzu sauce recipe? This recipe might be easy for you, cooking lovers!

Japanese-style hamburg steak is a little bit different. During this video, I will also show you how to make ponzu sauce as well. I remember that many of my cooking class guests wanted to know this recipe. Thank you for waiting!

If you cannot find Shiso (Japanese Basil) and Daikon radish, don’t worry! Please skip the ingredients or grate other veggie (radish, carrot, turnips etc) for topping. After making hamburg steaks, please put in a container and eat within 2 days! Fresh is important for this hamburg steak.

P.S. This hamburg steak is good at paring with Japanese premium sake.

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!

Happy Children’s Day 2020!

Categorised in: | Link of this article

Happy Children’s Day !
Children’s Day is a Japanese national holiday which takes place annually on May 5th, and it is part of Golden Week Holidays.
The purpose of the Children’s Day is to celebrate children’s happiness and to respect their personalities.

The day was originally called “Tango no Sekku”, or Boy’s Festival, was celebrated in order to wish the healthy growth of the boys in the family.

On that day, families with boys raise ‘koi-nobori’, or the carp-shaped streamers outside the house, wishing their success in their lives. They also display ornamental helmets called Kabuto or samurai dolls at home, because they are believed to be symbols of strength and vitality.

Traditional foods such as ‘kashiwa-mochi’, mochi rice cakes wrapped in oak leavesand, and ‘chimaki’, rice dumplings wrapped in bamboo leaves are eaten on that day. People put iris leaves and roots in the bath. It is believed that it will purge noxious vapor.

This year, my husband prepared kashiwamochi and I bought iris leaves and roots to put in a bath. Since it’s rare to put iris leaves and roots in a bathtub, my son enjoyed his long bath time tonight!
Of course, kashiwamochi was delicious with green tea.
