One of the most popular summer festivals, Tanabata is coming up fast. With a beautiful story behind it and widespread celebrations around Japan, it is time to get acquainted with the “Star Festival.”
Goya Company was founded by Makoto Iramina, a musician and entrepreneur who's as passionate about music as he is about producing true island flavors from Okinawa.
Summer is a great season, but it sometimes makes us lose our appetite. In Japan ume (plum) is known as an appetite enhancer. Teriyaki chicken is one of the most well-known Japanese dishes. Its beautiful glaze is a feast for the eyes, while the plum will relieve your fatigue.
I made this dish as an appetizer when my friend came to visit. We just couldn’t stop enjoying the layers of flavor; sweetness from squash, saltiness from shiokoji, sourness from lemon juice and creamy flavor from cream cheese. You may also use sweet potato if you like.
Chicken karaage has been everyone’s favorite. Even when I try to avoid deep-fried dishes, this dish is exceptional, and I always surrender to karaage. By cherishing both ume and shiokoji, umami is enhanced. If you like ume flavor, you can add a little bit more ume liquid.
Born worlds apart, Gyoho and Airi were brought together over their love of food, traveling and their belief that fresh island flavors can heal. Their story is symbolic of the foods they create and the blend of local ingredients they use.
