When I think of the quintessential winter time dish, it has to be nabe ryori. Nabe is Japanese hot pot and like most hot pot dishes, you can put anything in it. It's like the Asian version of stone soup. There are a few standard items that are usually part of most nabe dishes but there are many t...

Ohitashi is traditionally made with spinach but other green leafy vegetables can be used. There's nothing fancy about this dish but over the years I've become more fond of it. There are no special cooking techniques involved here, although you will want to make sure you don't over cook the spinac...

Tamago Osuimono
Matsutake gohan should only be paired with an osuimono for two reasons: 1) They are both fancy foods and 2) you don't want a strong miso soup flavor to over power the matsutake. I was inspired by a recipe I found on Cookpad (Mammaru Tamagodofu no osuimono ), although I found it to be too salty so...

BAM 28: Classic Osaka-Style Okonomiyaki (Buta tama)
If there's one reason to move to a city, it's because of the food. At least that's what I told myself when I moved to Osaka. Osaka has traditionally been called "Tenka no daidokoro" or the "Nation's Kitchen." One of the things Osakans pride themselves on is their good food. Osaka is famous for ma...

Ingredient in the Spotlight: Katsuobushi
I probably should have posted katsuobushi a long time ago but for whatever reason I haven't. Recently, I acquired a large 500 gram bag of katsuobushi from a Japanese Costco (Costco is a large international wholesale retailer) and I wanted to share a photo on my blog. It also occurred to me that I...

BAM 22: Tofu, Kamaboko and Carrot Osumashi, Sushi Cake and Beets with Tofu sauce.
Osumashi (clear fish broth soup) is usually served to celebrate something and is almost always served with traditional kaiseki ryori. It is often served with sushi and New Year's food, as well as other medetai (celebratory) meals. My 100th post is coming up so I wanted to celebrate with my first ...

Kyuri and Wakame Sunomono (Pickled Cucumber and Wakame)
Sunomono literally means vinegar thing. There are many different types of sunomono dishes. Kyuri and Wakame Sunomono is a popular sunomono dish. The kyuri is really crunchy because it is treated with salt like instant tsukemono. Sunomono dishes are nice and refreshing side dishes, especially if y...

Okura Okazu (Okra Side dish)
Easing your way into something new is the approach I like to take. That's why I'm not gonna bring out the big guns and start talking about natto (fermented soy beans) for my first neba neba oooey gooey dish. I like a little neba neba (slimy) stuff every now and then. I always feel like I'm eating...

BAM 4:Cabbage Tsukemono (Pickled vegetables),Fuki Gohan andPotato and wakame Miso Soup. Tsukemono-chan. That's my mom's nick name. She loves her picked veggies. When I was a kid, my mom would spend Saturday mornings, prepping all of her tsukemono for the week. She would make different kinds of...
