We’ve spent a fair amount of time in Japan on the hunt for deliciously edible adventures and can never  get enough of this beautiful country.

Maybe it’s the warm, friendly people. Maybe it’s the incredible transport system (perhaps not the world’s most amazing anymore, but still lightyears ahead of ours here in Adelaide. 😅)

All I know is it definitely has something to do with all the amazing foodie discoveries to be found. It’s almost like they’re around every corner, just waiting to pounce!

From street-style Crispy Fried Takoyaki to convenience-store Onigiri Rice Balls to bento boxes of all descriptions, there’s so much deliciousness to choose from.

And this little recipe for Yudofu – aka Simple Japanese Hot Tofu, a common hot pot or bento box side dish – is just ONE of our favourites! 🍱

We’re on a pre-Easter high after sending out last week’s Koulourakia recipe – seems like you guys really enjoyed the chance to get creative with your baking!

We were chatting to our friend Joy over at Homestead Lovers earlier this week and told her all about our little experiments with sumac spice, which we used for a little citrus burst in our Koulourakia.

Joy was telling us all about the dehydrated citrus powders she’s created, and it got us thinking about how we could each mix our favourite flavours through old-fashioned/traditional Easter recipes.

One thing let to another, and we decided to hold our own little pre- Easter Challenge!

Below we’re sharing the results of our latest baking experiment for this moreish little Matcha Hot Cross Buns recipe, but don’t forget to check out Joy’s recipe for Hot ‘Pleased’ Buns recipe, which features zingy citrus powder and MACE. ❤️

So… Sarah has a confession.

The first time she tried Yakisoba, she was ridiculously hungover on the 46th floor of the Umeda Sky Building, about to watch the summer festival fireworks.

The noodles sat in a crisp white take-away box, full of saucy gloriousness. A hangover cure to surpass even that of a KFC Ultimate Burger Meal.

Just one bite and she was hooked:

Enough!
No… just… one… more… bite!
Okay, done.
Mmmmmm, this is the last one…
Or two…
I’m just going to finish it.
Sigh.
