Some of the main locations are Hokkaido, Nigata, and Akita. Some of the main foods are rice, miso soup, and sushi.
Some of the main spices used are soy sauce, rice vinegar, and mirin.
Japan's food tends to be colourful with different flavours Main Foods and Characteristics Meal Patterns Breakfast: Could consist of miso soup, nori (dried seaweed), and green tea.
Lunch: Typically simple, may consist of udon or soba.
Dinner: Rice, pickled vegetables, a main dish of meat.
The Japanese eat 3 meals, but also snack a lot during the day. Food Customs and Traditions Customs aren't as important as they used to be.
Some of the main customs are finishing every last thing on your plate, slurping certain types of noodles, and staying in one place while eating. It's considered very rude to rub chop sticks together.
Japanese Cuisine, meaning traditional-style Japanese foods, is known for its emphasis on seasonality of food, quality of ingredients and presentation.
Festivals are very common in Japan. Almost every shrine has its own festival.
A very important festival is Omizutori, which has been celebrated for over 1200 years by Buddhists. It is held from March 1st to 14th.
Japanese celebrate many holidays from celebrating the second Monday of January to Christmas. My Family's Traditions One of my family's traditions is a family and friend get together we call the "Fish Fry".
This tradition started with 6 people and now has over 40 people. Family members and family friends come to the Fish Fry.
We have had the Fish Fry for 25 years.
You can wear what you want.
The food served is typical Barbeque foods; hamburgers, hotdogs, potato salad etc. People also bring their own dishes. Influences on Food Habits Japanese cuisine has been influenced by the food customs of other nations, but they have changed them and made it their own unique style and eating habits.
Approximately two thirds of the land is too mountanious for development. Some mountainous areas have been terraced to allow farmers to grow rice and other crops.
The climate is good for farming. About half of Japan's farm land is devoted to growing rice. Foods Commonly Used Meats:
Horse, beef, chicken, pork.
Millet, quinoa, amaranth, rice.
Eggplant, pears, persimmon.
Butter, milk, cheese. Unique Methods of Preparation Japanese foods are never cooked in an oven.
There are five typical cooking methods used; boiling, grilling, deep-frying, steaming, and serving raw.
There also must be a balance of colours in each meal. The colours are green, yellow, red, white and black. Kabocha Cookies
* 1/4 lb kabocha, seeds removed
* 2 Tbsp butter
* 3 Tbsp sugar
* 1 egg yolk
* 2/3 cup flour
* 1/4 tsp baking powder
Cut kabocha into medium chunks and put in a microwavable bowl. Heat kabocha in the microwave until softened. Peel kabocha and mash in the bowl. Mix butter and sugar in another bowl. Add mashed kabocha in the bowl and mix well. Add an egg yolk and stir well. Sift flour and baking powder together. Add the flour in the kabocha mixture. Mix the dough. Rest the dough in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 340 degrees F. Flatten the cookie dough on floured board and cut into your favorite shapes. Place shaped cookie dough on a lined baking pan. Bake cookies in the oven for about 10-20 minutes, depending on the thickness of the cookies. Anko
* 1/2 lb or 1 1/3 cup azuki beans
* 2 cup Japanese Johakuto (white sugar), or 1 1/4 cup granulated sugar *adjust the sweetness to your preference
* 1 tsp salt *adjust the amount of salt to your preference
Put azuki beans in a deep pot and pour enough water to cover them. Soak azuki for a half day or overnight. Put the pot on high heat and bring to a boil. Turn down the heat to medium and simmer azuki for about 10 minutes. Drain in a colander. Put the azuki beans back in the pot and add about four cups of water. Bring to a boil on high heat. Turn down the heat to low and simmer azuki beans for about one hour, or until softened. Carefully drain the liquid from the pot. Add sugar and salt to your taste and stir azuki. Further, simmer azuki until it becomes your desired thickness. Stop the heat. Recipes Conclusion Interesting Facts:
