My Japanese cooking for my guest

We had a guest on last weekend. I cooked Japanese dinner.
Our guest Mr. Mike Kok, he is a pioneer of Manga artist in the Netherlands.
I really appreciate his visit, and we enjoyed both dinner and talking very much.

Paprika with sesame Miso sauce.

Chicken with Ume-Shiso role

beef sashimi with rose shape,

Yep, I am sure My Japanese foods are better than strange Japanese restaurants!



Nameko-Jiru (Nameko Miso soup)

Nameko is one of a Japanese mushroom.
But we can get this in Holland in autumn.
Taste and quality is same with Japan.
I like to make Nameko Jiru (Nameko Miso soup) and Nameko with Soya source butter.

Kyaraben (character bento) workshop

Kyaraben, a shortened form of character bento, is a very popular bento style in Japan which features food decorated to look like Anime or Kawaii characters. At the workshop you learn how to make authentic Kyaraben and the result you can take home. More info http://tokyodoll.web.fc2.com/workshop/bentoworkshop.html
