Cooking@Granny K

As much as Granny K and I have had our differences I have come to realise that the woman has a wealth of vestling recipes for Japanese side dishes, some of which may or may not include mountain root vegetables and bamboo shoots. I need to learn these family recipes so I can pass them down to my children. On this page I hope to document some of my favorite dishes that Granny K puts together. If I’m lucky I’ll even get pics and hand written transcripts labeling splashes of mirin and dashes of sake.

    Great! I await the post when she pisses you off and this section just becomes Cooking Granny K and it’s just a pic of her legs sticking out the oven door 😉

    Oh please please please. !!! I do a pretty good impression of Nihon Ryori, but my MIL was AWESOME. I am sorry that I didn’t take full advantage and really learn the old ways. But she was very protective of her kitchen, as I was always treated as an “honored guest” and not allowed in there. 😦 And FIL was Taiwanese and ran one of the best kept little secret Chinese Restaurants in Tokyo. Hubs at the time worked for him occasionally and let me in on lots of those secrets. My Mabu-Dofu is to die for !!!

    Oh – yes! I’d sign up for these….my MIL has forgotten how to do any more than put hot water on instant soup and I could do with some more ideas about how to make tofu interesting!!!
