Like an ice... so beautiful... Do you believe that this is a kind of rice cake ? The name is Kuzu-mochi . It is made with just starchy kuzu powder*, sugar and water. * Kuzu powder= a natural and unprocessed powder extracted from the kuzu plants Although this Kuzu-mochi includes Anko (sweet beans paste), sometimes it is eaten with Kinako(soy powder) or brown sugar syrup. Kuzu-mochi is a one of the Japanese cold sweets. Enjoy the taste and looks !
Do you like Sashimi ? Seared Bonito = かつおのたたき(Katsuo no tataki) is one of the Sashimis. Slice the Bonito(Katsuo) and a long green onion(Negi). This time, I used a frozen Seared Bonito. When you want to eat it, put the package into the water and wait 10~15 minutes. That's it ! You can eat fresh Seared Bonito whenever you want. Thaaanks for the technical innovation ! Dip it in the soy sauce, and eat it with Negi ! Absolutely delicious !!
