Homemade Miso Online Cooking Saturday Aug 1

At 1pm-3pm

Homemade Miso tastes totally different, it lasts forever. It takes 4 months to ferment so don’t worry if you have enough miso right now.
Miso Recipe is Here. You’ll need Soy beans, salt, Rice Koji, and cooking wine and make about 5lb of miso paste, which lasts forever!! Everything is available on Amazon or any Japanese market. The process looks complex, and takes time, but the experience will be unforgettable!! Join us to make miso paste together online!! What you have to do is preparing the ingredients beforehand, prepare for making a mess and wait for the details!
Any questions? Ask Junko!
It’s $5 per an account. Feel free to join with your friends or family. Go to Event Calendar, choose “Members’ Cooking Events”, and select Aug 1st for booking your spot. Kuro-Obi members are FREE to join! Thank you as always!

The Columbus Zoo is reopen now!

We visited there for the first time in a long time and had a blast..♪♪
Are you learning Japanese? I posted a new video for Japanese tips. Check it out!
The zoo is trying to make everybody happy as safely as they can. Visit their website to book the time to visit. It is annoying that we have to reserve the time beforehand, but it can’t be helped for now... 😢💦
You have a wonderful summer ahead!! Take care.

Sushi Rolls

You know what?? We usually don’t call this kind of sushi “Sushi” in Japan. It’s “Maki-zushi”!! We don’t cook Sushi at home, we eat out for Sushi. But Maki-Zushi is one of casual Japanese dishes, which we often cook for our families.
I posted a recipe for Maki-Zushi, which doesn’t contain any row fish so everyone can safely enjoy even in Summer♪
Oh of course, don’t miss new cooking videos and recipes! I added some veggie menus as well as summer dishes!!
