  • 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.

  • Kaori’s Easy Recipe: Learn to Make a Toy Story’s Little Green Men Japanese Parfait

    04.April.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.

     

    We’re all locked up at home right now as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, and so I want to show you a fun character ice cream recipe that can be made with things you have at home! In this recipe, we’ll learn how to make a Japanese parfait made in the image of the Little Green Men from Toy Story. This recipe is taken from the recipe book Disney Tsum Tsum Sweets Recipes.

     

    Ingredients

    Matcha Ice Cream

    Chocolate Pens

    Fruit

    Toppings of your choice, such as red bean paste or soy flour

     

    1.

    Draw the eyes, ears, and antennae of your little green men onto a baking sheet using a chocolate pen. Place into the freezer to chill.

     

    2.

    Let the ice cream come to room temperature so it’s easier to scoop, then scoop out with a round ice cream scoop.

    You can get an ice cream scoop from a dollar store. If you don’t have one, place the softened ice cream into something round, and then let it harden again in the freezer. Afterwards, remove and place it into some cling film to shape it roundーthe same method you use for making onigiri rice balls in Japan. Then let it solidify in the freezer once more.

     

    3.

    Before letting your ice cream from Step ② fully solidify, first place on the face parts from Step ①. If your ice cream is completely solidified and not soft enough, the parts will break when you try to fix them on, so make sure to take note. Once the parts are on, place into the freezer to harden. By doing this, the eyes, ears, and antennae will affix to the head.

     

    4.

    In the recipe book, they top their parfait with rice flour dumplings, but I’m using the outer part of a large daifuku for my toppings. It’s something I saw on the TV recently.

    Add a tablespoon of granulated sugar and two tablespoons of potato starch into a bowl and slowly add hot water until it becomes transparent. This is a super easy way to make gyuhi, a type of soft Japanese confectionery like mochi and daifuku.

     

    5.

    Add the gyuhi on top of the red bean paste and top with soy flour.

     

    6.

    Add your Little Green Man and fruit of your choice, then tuck int!

  • Kaori’s Easy Recipe: Learn to Make My Melody Strawberry Purin

    12.January.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.

     

    As strawberries are currently in season in Japan, today we’ll be looking at an easy recipe for delicious strawberry purin. All you have to do is mix the ingredients and you’re done! In previous recipes, we’ve looked at purin recipes that involve decorating the inside of the glass. Many people commented that this is quite difficult so today we’ve got a recipe that is easy enough for even kids.

     

    Ingredients (For 2 Portions)

    Two small jars (this recipe uses Weck jars)

    200g Strawberries with stems and leaves removed (approximately one small pack)

    20g Sugar

    20ml Fresh Cream (or milk to substitute)

    5g Gelatin (dissolved in a tablespoon of water)

    ½ Teaspoon Lemon Juice

     

    To Decorate

    Premade Chocolate Decorations or Chocolate Slices (as you like)

    Strawberries to Decorate (as you like)

    Fresh Cream (As you Like)

    Chocolate Pen

     

    2: After removing the leaves and stems from the strawberries, blend them in a mixer.

     

    3: Heat the mixture in a microwave on 600w for 50 seconds. Afterwards, add the sugar, gelatin solution and lemon juice in that order. Finally, mix in the fresh cream.

    4: Meanwhile, press the premade chocolate decorations or sliced chocolate (white) into the inside wall of your jar.

    5: Use the chocolate pen to draw the face, strawberries and ribbons from the outside of the glass. If you make a mistake, wipe it off using kitchen paper and try again.

    6:Put the jar into the fridge for the chocolate to harden. Once the chocolate does not sink when the jar is placed upright, slowly add your strawberry mixture into the jar and put it back in the fridge until hard. After your dessert solidifies, you can add the finishing touches of whipped cream and strawberries.

    And you’re done!

    13.February.2021 | 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 Strawberry Milk Chocolate Pudding, a delicious recipe whipped up with love for Valentine’s Day.

     

    Ingredients

    ✩Ingredients For Chocolate Pudding
    35g chocolate
    300ml milk
    30g-35g granulated salt
    5g gelatine (dissolved in 1 tbsp water)

     

    ✩Ingredients For Strawberry Pudding
    100g strawberries (fresh or frozen)
    350ml milk
    30g-35g granulated salt
    5g gelatine (dissolved in 1 tbsp water)

    Weck jars for the dessert.

     

    1

    First, we’ll make the chocolate pudding.

     

    Put the milk and granulated sugar into a pot and heat on the hob until the sugar melts. Turn the heat off, throw in the chocolate, and allow to fully melt. Once melted and the mixture is cooled, add the gelatine to dissolve.

     

    2

    Now, we’ll make the strawberry pudding.

     

    Put the milk and granulated sugar into a pot and heat on the hob until the sugar melts.

    Add the mix to a blender with the strawberries and blitz. Add back onto the hob and heat through slightly. Allow the mixture to cool then add the gelatine to dissolve.

     

    3

    Once both mixtures are completely cooled, add them to the jars in an alternating pattern and chill until set.

    ⚠️Make sure the dessert is completely set and not runny before serving. About an hour each in the refrigerator should be sufficient.

    Top with cream and strawberries and enjoy!

    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 a simple recipe for Valentine’s Day made with ingredients bought entirely from the 100 yen store Seria. I call it the “Rilakkuma Hot Chocolate Stick.”

     

    Ingredients

    Square mould from Seria (makes six sticks)
    1 bag of milk chocolates

    1 bag of white chocolates

    1 bag of dark chocolates

    Toppings of your choice (I used caramel chocolate chips and walnuts)

     

    1

    Melt all the chocolates separately over a bain-marie.

     

    2

    Create layers with each chocolate type. Pick your first choice and pour into the mould and wait for it to set lightly before adding the next chocolate. For this recipe, I went ahead and added the chocolate a little before layers had finished setting to create a marbling effect.

     

    ✩I also added some strawberry chocolate I had left over from my Rilakkuma chocolates.

     

    3

    Once all your chocolate is in the mould, stick in some lollipops and add toppings of your choice making sure they don’t overflow. This will ensure they set together with the chocolate.

     

    4

    Allow to set overnight and your chocolate stick is ready.

     

    5

    I made Rilakkuma chocolates from scratch and added those to the sticks to finish.

  • LEMONADE by Lemonica Releases Sweet Spring Lemon Version of its Signature Freshly Squeezed Drink

    30.January.2021 | FOOD

    LEMONADE by Lemonica, a shop in Japan that serves lemonade made with its own original recipe, is now serving its “Sweet Spring” version of its freshly-squeezed Namashibori Squeezy lemonade as the best season for citrus fruits in Japan has arrived.

    Namashibori Squeezy: Regular Size ¥444 / Large Size ¥509 (Before Tax)

    The Namashibori Squeezy is one of LEMONADE by Lemonica’s most popular menu items, made with freshly-squeezed citrus fruits. The shop uses only the best picks of each season, and right now is the ideal season for citrus fruits which calls for the return of the “Sweet Spring” edition of its signature beverage. Sweet Spring is actually the name given to a specific variety of Japanese citrus fruit which is a combination of mikan and hassaku orange. It has a naturally high sugar content and is rich in flavour, adding pure sweetness and a tangy kick to the beverage without being bitter. It’s known for being a rare fruit due to the difficulty of growing and harvesting it, so it’s not often seen in the markets in Japan. They are normally shipped in January and February and are mostly grown in Kyushu as the island enjoys a lot of sun.

     

    LEMONADE by Lemonica doesn’t make its lemonade by adding syrup to lemon juice. It uses whole lemons to create its own original recipe. It highlights how lemons have a lot of different parts which when combined can provide many different flavours including the lemon flesh, juice, peel, white sponge, and stem.

     

    And for the winter season, LEMONADE by Lemonica is introducing some limited-time desserts to its menu made with sweet strawberries.
