This Tamago, Gohan, Chōmiryō Dish recipe which features Mizkan Natural Rice Vinegar and Mizkan Mirin brings back to many childhood memories. Growing up, my best friend’s mom could be found in the kitchen cooking up dumplings, rolling sushi or placing a bowl of hot rice or ramen down in front of us to eat as we came home from school.
Having a best friend whose Mom was Japanese meant from a young age that I would be exposed to some pretty authentic Japanese fare.
My first sleepover I was served a bowl of rice for breakfast. My friend started to sprinkle seasoning and dried fish on her rice. As a little six year old who had had cereal and milk her entire life growing up, I didn’t even know what to do or say. I had never had anything look at me while I was eating it!
As I grew older, my friends parents would invite me to dinner with her family every week. We often ate out at traditional Japanese restaurants with plates of beautiful sushi and flowers. My friend started popping some of the flowers in her mouth. She invited me to try, and when I went to try a pretty looking flower, my friend and her Mom started laughing when they watched my face.
Even though the tradition, culture and food taught me a lot of interesting things through the years, it also taught me an appreciation and love for it too.
One of my favorite recipes is a simple traditional Japanese meal that you can make at home. If you are looking to elevate the flavor of this dish, I highly recommend using Mizkan Natural Rice Vinegar and Mizkan Mirin.
