Often described as a “Japanese pizza”, okonomiyaki is actually more like a pancake. I think the reason people compare it to a pizza is because you can fill it with just about anything that suits your fancy. Fitting, given that its name literally translates to “grilled as you like it”.

A street food that’s often sold at Matsuri in Japan, it’s a fast food that’s been around long before McDonalds opened their first golden arches in the land of sushi and teriyaki.

With the sun getting lower in the sky and the chill of autumn creeping upon us, I finally decided to wake my oven from its summer-long slumber to bake some bread. Given that it’s been about six months since I’ve done any baking, I decided to start with something simple and familiar.

Focaccia is a great beginner bread because it’s fun to shape, can be topped with almost anything, and involves a one step baking process unlike some breads (such as bagels or baguettes).

Redefine Rice with Clams and Chicken Paella

Clams and Chicken Paella

I don’t know if it’s my Asian lineage that makes me genetically predisposed to having an affinity for rice, but I love rice dishes. Whether it is risotto, wappa meshi, Hainanese chicken rice, or rice pudding, I can’t get enough of the humble grain.

Paella is another one of my favorites, not just because of its simple one-pot preparation, but because of the depth of flavor you just don’t see in most rice dishes. It’s also great because you can make it using a nearly infinite combination of meats, seafood and vegetables.
