24.June.2019 | ANIME&GAME / FOOD

From July 1 to August 31, ABC Cooking Studios across Japan will be running a one-day class for children to learn how to make a Pikachu omelette. The class is aimed at 4 ー 6 year-olds. After the class, the children can enjoy their fluffy Pikachu omelette.


Pikachu Omelette 

Last July and August, ABC held a similar one-day Pikachu Banana Cake class for children. Approximately 20,000 children signed up and enjoyed making their delicious cakes. This year’s event is a wonderful opportunity for children who wish to challenge themselves to cooking or are looking to make wonderful summer memories. This is a wonderful opportunity to grant your curious children.

 

The cooking teacher will show children all the cooking tricks to make a delicious dessert in very easy steps. Even children who are completely new to cooking will have nothing to worry about. In the class, children will learn how to make an omelette decorated with Pikachu’s face and a chocolate custard filling. Once finished, they can garnish their Pikachu with a sun visor. The children will also be making a Poké Ball cupcake. Once they make their desserts, they can take them home. To finish the class, the hardworking children will be gathered to have a fun discussion on their opinions on the class.  


The children will also receive an original Pikachu and Eevee drawstring bag as a souvenir. This class is a great way for children to become better friends. After the class is over, they can even wear their bags together as a sign of everlasting friendship.

  • Tame Pikachu Helps You Around the House! Become Friends With the Ne UchiPika Robot

    02.June.2019 | ANIME&GAME / FASHION

    Toy maker Takara Tomy​ has released a Pikachu robot that can recognise words. The Ne, UchiPika will be released in Japan on August 3, 2019 at toy shops, electronics stores, toy sections of department stores and emporiums, online and on Takara Tomy’s official website.

    Ne, UchiPika can understand words in Japanese and connect to your TV and lights. He uses infrared light to connect to devices just how a standard remote control does. Therefore, there is no need to buy any special equipment or even connect him to the internet. You can simply add the functions from your TV remote to get going!

    Just call Pikachu’s name and he will listen to your command. “Pikachu! I wanna watch TV!” “Can you turn on the lights?” There’s so much you can ask Pikachu to help you with. Pikachu will help you to turn your TV on and off, change the volume and change the channel. At night, he can turn your night light on and off, too so you don’t have to get out of bed. You can even add whatever features you like from your remote control to Pikachu.

    Pikachu knows the phrases “see you later” (ittekimasu) and “I’m home” (itterasshai) in Japanese and will even sing if you ask him to. The most shocking feature, however, is his thunderbolt move which you just have to ask him to perform! Pikachu’s actions are not just limited to working household appliances. From the moment you greet each other with “good morning” (ohayou) to when you say “goodnight” (oyasumi), Pikachu will react to everything you say to him.

    A similar Pikachu called Ne, HelloPika was launched last year and became incredibly popular. Approximately 10,000 of these were sold. This time round, the Ne, HelloPika gets a new friend. Say hello to your new robot Eevee friend Ne, HelloVui!

    Just like HelloPika, Eevee can reply to you, dance, laugh, and respond to you randomly. Whilst HelloPika tends to nod and bow with excitement, HelloVui tends to tilt their head a lot in a cute way.

     

    Now, you can enjoy a pleasant conversation with both of them!

     Put them in your pocket or a sleeve in your bag to take everywhere with you.

     

    Have fun playing with your new friends Pikachu and Eevee♪

  • Chawanmushi Recipe: Savoury Dessert Made With Carrots, Cream Cheese & Mirin

    31.July.2020 | FEATURES / FOOD

    Together with soy sauce and miso, mirin is a fundamental condiment in the Japanese kitchen and for many recipes for Japanese food. It’s a sweet rice wine that has lower alcohol content and higher sugar content when compared to sake, adding a sweet flavour to dishes.

     

    Today, we’re taking a look at a recipe that uses “Mikawa Mirin,” a brand of mirin made from high quality rice, to make carrot and cream cheese chawanmushi. Chawanmushi is a savoury egg custard dessert eaten in Japan.

     

    Carrot & Cream Cheese Chawanmushi

    Chawanmushi is made using mirin and has a smooth texture to it as well as a subtly sweet flavour. It’s the perfect accompaniment to a hot summer’s day.

     

    Ingredients (Serves 1)


    ●Chawanmushi
    60g carrots
    240ml dashi
    20ml soy sauce
    120ml Mikawa Mirin
    8g sugar
    18g cream cheese
    1 egg

     

    ●Okra-an
    Okra
    30ml dashi
    0.5g salt
    3ml Mikawa Mirin

     

    Method

    We will start by making the chawanmushi.

    1. Slice the carrots and boil them until they become soft.

    2. Add the soy sauce, sugar, and lots of mirin and cook through the dashi.

    3. Cook for approximately 20 minutes on a medium heat, then cool with ice. Add the cooled carrots, cream cheese, and 20ml of the dashi into a blender and bend.

    4. Add the egg to the mix and steam the mix for 12 minutes on a medium heat.

     

    While the chawanmushi is cooling, we’ll make the okra-an.

    5. Mix together the okra-an dashi, mirin, and salt together. Add watered potato starch and thinly sliced okra. Leave to cool in the refrigerator.

    6. Add the okra-an to the cooled chawanmushi and tuck into your cute two-layered dessert.

    Carrot & Cream Cheese Chawanmushi

    The dessert is an enjoyable mix of the sticky texture from the okra-an and smooth chawanmushi. It’s great to have not only at lunch or dinner, but at home parties with friends too.

     

    –How’s the taste?


    Misa Kimura: “It works really well with the mirin. The chawanmushi is like a sweet treat. It’s super easy to make too, so I think I’ll be making it at home!”

     

    Mirin is indispensable to any Japanese cupboard and can be used in many ways, whether it be a classic Japanese dish or a dessert like this one.

    Mikawa Mirin 700ml: ¥1,122 (Tax Included)

    This authentic brand of mirin is made using a traditional method of Japanese brewing which blends in the delicious taste of rice. It’s so delicious that you just want to drink the whole bottle. A high quality mirin, it has a distinct sweetness, colour, and texture. It has a rich flavour, and the taste of the rice elevates the flavours of its ingredients.

    17.May.2020 | FEATURES / FOOD

    With just a small bit of ingenuity, turn everyday food into something cute using Kaori’s Easy Recipe! With a few simple ideas, an ordinary recipe magically transforms into a cute dish.

     

    In today’s recipe, I’ll be showing you how I made a batch of Pompompurin cheese tarts made using store-bought tart cups.

     

    Ingredients (Makes 9-10)

    9-10 store bought tart cups
    200g cream cheese (brought to room temperature)
    20-30g sugar
    1 egg yolk
    50ml fresh cream
    8g potato starch (katakuriko)
    Vanilla beans to taste (can be substituted for vanilla extract)
    1 tbsp lemon juice

     

    Step 1


    Pour the following ingredients into a bowl in this order: cream cheese→sugar→egg yolk→vanilla beans→fresh cream→potato starch. Mix well. Make sure when you put the potato starch in last that you sprinkle it thinly.

     

    Step 2
    Bake the tart cups in an oven at 180℃ for 15-20 minutes. If you don’t have store-bought cups, you can use small cocotte dishes.

     

    Step 3

    Leave to cool. Now you can start drawing the face.

    For the hat I used sliced chocolate, for the ears sliced cheese, and for the facial features a chocolate pen.

    Once you’ve drawn the face, it’s time to tuck in!

  • Kaori’s Easy Recipe: Learn to Make a Gudetama Parfait

    09.May.2020 | FEATURES / FOOD

    With just a small bit of ingenuity, turn everyday food into something cute using Kaori’s easy recipe! With a few simple ideas, an ordinary recipe magically transforms into a cute dish.

     

    Today, I’ll be showing you how to make a Gudetama parfait made with a yogurt mousse and topped with orange and peach jelly.

     

    Ingredients
    Yogurt Mousse Ingredients:
    100g sugar free yogurt
    50ml fresh cream
    20g sugar
    3g gelatin
    *With the gelatin, mix well with 1 tbsp water

     

    Mikan & Yellow Peach Jelly Ingredients:
    100ml mikan juice (or any orange juice)
    150g tinned peaches (with syrup)
    5g gelatin
    *With the gelatin, mix well with 1 tbsp water

     

    1


    ①Mix the sugar into the yogurt well. Add in 7/10 of the fresh cream and mix well again.

    ②Microwave the gelatin for 10-20 seconds at 500w. Add into the mixture from ① and mix well.

     

    2

    Once the mixture has set in about ⅓ of a glass, add sliced chocolate on the inside for the eyes and mouth. I cut mine into shape using a toothpick.


    Make sure the chocolate is properly fixed to the glass at this point.

     

    3


    Put your yellow peach and mikan orange into a blender (but not the gelatin part). The syrup of the peaches is already sweet so there’s no need to add sugar.

     

    ②Microwave the gelatin for 10-20 seconds at 500w. Add into the blended mixture and mix well.

     

    Pour on top of the mix inside the glass. If there are any peach pieces left, cut them up and use them as toppings.

    Top with fresh cream and chopped fruit, and you’re done! I stuck Gudetama’s face on well and good so it looks like his chocolate face is on the outside. Be sure to try doing the same.

We created a new articles series called Stay Home with which we hope to take your mind off the situation, even for just a little bit, to help you feel calmer. It might give you some tips on what you can do while spending time at home.
