Japanese Comfort Food

Japanese food is a pretty big part of my life. After almost ten years living in Japan, I am a little more than a fan. My wife is Japanese, from Osaka, and cooking is a very big part of her life and identity. She believes that the effort you put into your home cooking reflects the love you have for your family. If that’s to be believed, then she clearly loves us a lot!

I plan to make several posts showing some amazing Japanese home cooking.

My apologies for making you hungry!

A well-rounded dinner. White rice, miso soup, main dish with chicken, konnyaku jelly, burdock root, broccoli, and carrots. There’s also another vegetable side-dish.

Nothing quite as comforting on a cold winter’s night than a wonderfully hot pot of sukiyaki!

Ozoni! Traditional New Years Day breakfast in Japan. Miso soup with mochi inside. The komoboko (fish cake) had the design for the year of the rooster.

Osechi ryori. Traditional Japanese meal for New Years Day. This one was made by my wife. A very lengthy process.
