Food Research in Los Angeles : Day 2
Day 2 started with healthy breakfast ordered via Uber eats. I ordered vegan donut , Almond croissant , Ceviche with cauliflower, Karaage with creamy butter-milk sauce and Almond milk coffee. Some are new flavor for me so it was so fun and meaningful.
Then, driving time!
Food Research in Los Angeles : Day 1
It’s time to go overseas to do “food research”!!!
My family and I visited LA for half holiday and half “food research” last week. In the airplane, I booked “Low carbohydrate meal” for me and “Child meal” for my son. You can choose various meals from ANA’s website in advance.
Normal weekend breakfast
Weekend has come! My family loves to eat pancake on weekend. (Mario and Luigi even taste small portion of pancake.) I always enjoy experimenting and adding new seasonings to create new flavors. This day, I tried matcha flavor pancake topped with Kinako (=soybean powder) and Kuromitsu (=brown sugar syrup) and the vegetables pancake with sweet corn and pumpkin inside. Oh, I like the simple pancake with butter and maple syrup as well. Happy weekend!
Mario and Luigi Bento class
Recently, I hold Mario and Luigi Bento class for family guests from USA. I was so happy to know that they chose this class because they wanted to learn Japanese Bento and also meet Mario and Luigi at the end of their Japan trip! (By the way, my hungry son finished almost all the Mario and Luigi Bento…you know.)
Short trip to my hometown Iwaki-city
I visited my hometown few weeks ago and had a relaxing time there. Since my hometown Iwaki-city (Fukushima-prefecture) has a lot of nature, my family enjoyed spending time at the beach, mountain and botanical garden etc. I especially enjoyed walking around the neighborhood where I used to live before moving to Tokyo. I could see so many new houses and its architectures are very modern and sophisticated. My son could meet cousins and play together with them.

Spicy Miso Ramen for Halal guest
These days, I have several requests for Halal menus so I started teaching Spicy Miso Ramen in my Home-style Ramen & Gyoza class. If you are interested in this ramen, please let me know when booking! Thank you!!

Homemade Plum Juice making
After coming back to Tokyo, Mr.Hamanura from Inoue Umeboshi shokuhin company sent us a box of 1kg plums!!! Some of you may know but my fridge is not big so I started making a homemade plum juice right away. In Japan, we enjoy plum juice (and also plum related foods) to prevent fatigue from summer heat. I have homemade plum juice this summer so I should be energetic and work harder! hahahah
Gyoza pizza making with students from USA
The other day, students from USA joined our cooking class.
So we made TWO gyoza pizzas for 9 guests. And…of course…it’s all gone!!!
Summer has arrived!
Summer has arrived finally here in Japan. Somehow, it arrived a bit early this year. So, I decided to display sunflowers this week. I like this brilliant color!
