Welcome to my blog.

After a few random posts I've decided to dedicate this blog to my life long project of Japanese food
and culture (and my life in general, especially my travels).

Since my first taste of sushi back in 1997 I've been interested in, and frequently been making
Japanese food.
My interest in the country and culture started long before and continues to evolve.
I was lucky to finally visit Japan in October 2008 and hope to be back soon.
In July 2012 I visited Japantown in San Fransisco, the next best thing!
I was lucky to be back in 2015, 2016 and 2017 thanks to the fact that we now have family living in California.
Both small and big adventures will from now on, as time permits, be shared with you.

I will post other recipes and pictures too, mainly cooking projects, plants and art projects
(including my new love - making kumihimo braided objects).

I hope you'll find it interesting, and feel free to leave a comment or ask questions!

I write mainly in English, but there will be some Norwegian too, especially posts about things
that mainly have Norwegian interest. Tutorials are bi-lingual.

Bacon tofu!

Turkey wrapped tofu with soya sauce!

Yes, we got tofu, and now we must eat it! (Part 2 of tofu making is coming soon....)

And what better way to eat this all vegetarian treat than to wrap it in.... bacon? You got to love Japan!
Anyway, as I didn't have any bacon I decided to make turkey wrapped tofu instead...

You do it like this:
Put a block of tofu in kitchen paper, put a weight (plate) on top and drain it for about 30 minutes. Cut the tofu into bite size pieces.

Cut bacon or turkey into pieces that match the tofu pieces and wrap them. Fry in a pan until crisp.
For a traditional sauce put some soya in the pan with 2 tbsp of brown sugar and cook until a thick sauce. Add the tofu pieces. Eat with rice and vegetables. Or put it in your bento box.
