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.

Homemade tofu

Well, homemade tofu is on it's way. I've put soya beans in water to soak tonight, and tomorrow I'll complete the making of soya milk... then I'm just one mold and the right coagulant away from tofu!

Stay tuned - to be updated!

The recipe:
500 gram of dried soya beans - soak in water overnight, rinse, soak again (max. 24 hrs)

16 cups of water

1 teaspoon nigari or other coagulant, like vinegar, lemon, gypsum.... working on this

Cheese cloth
Tofu mold (square mold with weight on top)

........ fingers crossed!

Yes! It's done... more pictures and instructions coming!
