I promised you pictures of my Japanese cooking party (yes, the one pre-Christmas), and I finally got around to posting them.
Before Christmas, I invited my Japanese class (I'm a student) and a few of my friends for a nice little pre-Christmas party. A few of them are expats and didn't have the time or means to fly home over the end of the year, so I wanted to have a little get-together to spread the spirit a bit.
I was responsible for the appetizers, my teacher made okonomiyaki for the main course, and another student brought muffins for dessert.
Ex-BF was still around at the time so he helped me cook.
This is thinly-sliced beef with different Japanese herbs and vegetables
Miniature salmon and teriyaki burger patties
Hot pork on soy sprouts (the ends of the sprouts have been clipped off- tastes so much better)
Mackerel with different mushrooms and vegetables
Pari-pari (means crispy) chicken. Crisped in the oven with a sesame oil coating.
Group picture of most of the class (sans me) with most of the food on the table. There was more.
I love cooking for my friends- will share pictures of my Superbowl Feast next in this category.
