Would you like to learn how to make Japanese food for your baby, but don’t know how?
Here is a new cooking show with three Japanese mums to show you!
Part 1 – How to buy ingredients for making Japanese baby food
Three Japanese mothers, Kaori, Akiko & Tomoko, take us on a guided tour of a supermarket in Japan and give us advice about some of the ingredients they often buy for making baby food for their babies. Similar to other countries, vegetables such as carrots, pumpkin, sweet potato, and spinach are often used in Japan, but there are also some unusual ingredients which may be unknown to mums and dads from overseas. In this cooking show, I have asked our three Japanese mums if they could show us some of these more unusual ingredients and how to cook them in their favourite baby food recipes. Here are the ingredients that they recommend us to try, and some tips on how to buy them at the supermarket!
– Yamato-imo (sweet yam), cabbage, natto (fermented soybeans), soft tofu, shirasu (white bait), tara (codfish), kombu (dried kelp), and katsuo-bushi (dried bonito flakes).
In upcoming posts, Kaori, Akiko & Tomoko will show us how to use these ingredients in their favourite dishes!
