Japanese cooking Oyako-don and Tempura

There are two groups, one party of 4 from Florida US and the other party of 2 from Australia in the .  All they are delightful and polite people so the went very well, and nice socialized .

Two women used to live in Japan for years ago, so they speak and understand some .  I’m always glad someone speak, someone tries to communicate in , that make me feel closer to them.

We -don, tempura, spinach goma-ae ( spinach withcream sesame dressing), rice and miso soup.

Oyako-don is a rice bowl which is made of and egg.  “oyako” in Japanese means parents and child (ren), you know, that is why this bowl is called as this name.

Pouring dissolved eggs into the pot for the finishing oyako-don .


We also cooked tempura for the side dish. I had a request from a from Australia how to cook tempura in advance, and  they learned my easy tempura recipe and I believe they brought back to heir home .

The participants get turn one by one to cook tempura.  They did great! Also had fun!



After tided up kitchen, I participate to the and having chat with the participants. Now I’ve relaxed and I really like this time!
