A popular Japanese street food snack, filled with red bean paste and sometimes chocolate!

A sneaky little trick to turn mushrooms into scallops! A simple dish, beaming with flavour.

A staple dish in our home. It may take a little while to prepare the sauces, but I assure you, it’s well worth it!

A cheesecake that lighter and fluffier than your standard western style cheesecakes. Easy to make, and will please a crowd!

A Christmas Cake that isn’t fruit cake! Although it is topped with fruit, nothing is more festive than a matcha cake.

A piece of Japan, right here in Prahran. Izakaya style, great whiskys, blow your socks off food!

I’ve had many people ask me, so here it is; the places you need to eat at when visiting the cities of Tokyo, Nagoya, Kyoto, and Osaka.

I used to have have phobia when it came to cooking fish. I seemed to have nailed it when cooking this good looking teriyaki dish!

I join a restaurant safari to see what you can expect at this year Taste of Melbourne.

This Japanese vegetarian pancake is great for clearing out the dredges of the fridge!

Perfect for dinner or packed lunches for work.
