“Cooking Together” by Tetsumi Hanaoka
Oct. 15, 2015
I’ve been in Canada for a week now. When we travel abroad, we usually eat out for most of our meals. It’s enjoyable to eat local food to experience a place, but we also long for the tastes of Japan.
This time while I’m in Montreal, I have a kitchen in my hotel room. So I decided to cook while I’m here!
For this particular lunch, each person was in charge of bringing along one part of the same dish.
Ryosuke was in charge of the vegetables: carrots, onions, and potatoes. The onion was almost as big as his face!
I was in charge of the pork, which I carved myself.
Kenta was in charge of the rice.
Yuta was in charge of the curry roux… so yes, that’s right: we made Japanese curry together!
When we all get together and cook like this, it reminds me of life at the Kodo Apprentice Centre and living in the dorm at Kodo Village.
Curry tastes so good when you make it and eat it with others. We made a full pot and ate every last bit. (LOL)
This should see us through the rehearsals this afternoon!
