Temari & Temaki-sushi for Japanese Star festival 七夕祭り 手毬と手巻き寿司

Let's get together for the Star festival.

WHAT IS STAR FESTIVAL IN JAPAN?
Tanabata (たなばた or 七夕, meaning "Evening of the seventh"), also known as the Star Festival (星祭り, Hoshi matsuri) in Japan. It celebrates the meeting of the deities Orihime and Hikoboshi (represented by the stars Vega and Altair respectively). According to legend, the Milky Way separates these lovers, and they are allowed to meet only once a year on 7 July.

Master SUDA Live streaming from Japan, the seasonal fresh fish tempura Donburi
Amazing knife skills and an exciting way with tempura

Thank you, Master Suda and Sozai for a fascinating Japanese Cookery Lesson today.

The knife skills of Master Suda are amazing, as are his knives. His preparation of the sea eel was a work of art. It was wonderful just to see him at work, though I don't think I'll be trying this at home.

I found the tempura section very instructive. I have never seen, nor read, about making tempura this way before – sprinkling batter into the hot oil before frying the floured and battered vegetables. I think I will try at home now. The results look wonderful.

I really enjoy these sessions as they give an insight into "true" Japanese cookery and to the different styles and skills.

Healthy Yummy Soft Dango

This was the easiest recipe I have ever had from Suzue. It is also my son's favourite sweet. He said "It's so good, I can't stop eating it. Please make it every day."
I was very surprised to see how soft they remained in the fridge the next day.
I would like to try making green Dango next time.
Thank you very much Suzue san !!
