I wish everyone could have a meal prepared by Hiroko. It is a feast for all of the senses. She takes such care with every step of the preparation and presentation, that it is an honor to partake of the meal. Hiroko always surprises me, introducing me to yet another delicious Japanese dish. I confess to being one of the uneducated who used to think that Japanese food was nothing but rice and raw fish. Thank you, Hiroko, for enlightening me!


I can't imagine making osechi at a farm. We bought the whole thing shipped from Japan - it takes so much work to make from scratch. Hiroko did a good job, making sure you got to see the whole thing. I hope you did get to enjoy it all with sake however!

I look forward to seeing Suvir if you have found a way to make Japanese food spicy. Your potato dumpling reminds me of Coroquette, a japanese comfort food we all grow up with. perhaps something cool for our mochi!

Sorry about your nana. Mine just passed away too.


What a beautiful property you have! I stumbled upon this looking for a miso soup recipe by Hiroko. What a wonderful start to a new year.
