Picture time: Japanese cooking

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

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.

    It was a collaboration between the ex and me- took us about an hour to clip enough sprouts to make 20oz. If they're fresh, you can just use your fingers so it's just repetitive but pretty quick work.

    20oz is enough to comfortably serve twelve people in a mixed menu like this- the table didn't stay beautiful for very long, there were a few people who hadn't RSVP'd so I had to improvise. No more set table, we just spread out to the den and had everything buffet style.
