  • Nikujaga

    Nikujaga

    Nikujaga literally means “meat and potatoes”, from two of the main ingredients niku (meat) and jagaimo (potatoes). It’s a comfort food for the Japanese and it is a very popular meal cooked at home. It is often considered “mother’s cooking” (“ofukuro no aji” おふくろの味 in Japanese) as each household cooks it just slightly different. The food itself is very simple and homely, and the warm bowl of your mother’s nikujaga brings one back to their roots. It is probably the most popular dish among all kinds of nimono (煮物 Japanese stewed dishes).

  • Rice

    Rice

    Rice is a staple food in Japan. In all most every family, there is a rice cooker. There is variety of Japanese rice brands such as Koshihikari and Hitomebore.

About Host



Hello. I’m Akiko.

I’ve been learning cooking so that I can cook Osechi Ryori, New Year’s traditional Japanese food. And the way of thinking “ You are what you eat” brought us three amazing girls. Now I’m supporting people who want baby through food and the way of thinking. That’s way I’m supporting designing lifestyle through foods now.

My best cherished memory when I went abroad is being invited their home and having home made meal with local people.
