Valentine's Day in the land of the rising sun

02/13/2024 - In Japan, Valentine's Day is an important holiday during which, unlike in the West where men men give gifts and flowers, it's the women who spoil the gentlemen with chocolates. A way of celebrating affection and friendship! Chocolatiers have created a variety of chocolates: Giri-choco for male colleagues, Honmei-choco for lovers, Tomo-choco for friends, Kazoku-choco for family, Jibun-choco for herself. Around 20% of annual chocolate consumption is linked to this event. JR Nagoya Takashimaya, a renowned department store in Nagoya, achieved record sales of over 21 million Euros from January 19 to February 14, 2023, an increase of 42% on 2022, and welcomed over 700,000 customers. The tradition continues on March 14, White Day: men give gifts back to the women who have spoiled them, often cookies, marshmallows or sweets. Nama-choco is characterized by its ganache with a high water content, which gives it a soft texture much appreciated by the Japanese. This "fresh" chocolate should be eaten within a week of production. Thanks to our ambassador, Junko Nishikori, for this Cointreau-flavored creation.

Sweet potatoes, a traditional ingredient of Japanese gastronomy

01/16/2024 - Introduced to Japan in the 17th century, sweet potatoes have become a popular autumn dish, thanks to their sweetness and richness in dietary fiber, vitamins and other nutrients. The sweet potato season runs from September to November. As they are sweeter after storage than when freshly picked, they are refined for about a month after harvest before being shipped. Some sixty varieties are grown in Japan, and are used in a wide range of sweet and savoury dishes, including : Tempura: slices coated in egg and flour, then deep-fried, Hoshi-imo: steamed, sliced and dried potatoes, Imo-kenpi: a sweet snack made with long, thin French fries, cooked in oil and candied. Yaki-imo: confectionery cooked for a long time at low temperature on hot stones. This cooking process eliminates excess water to bring out their natural sweetness. There is currently talk of a fourth yaki-imo boom. Sweet potato: Western-Japanese fusion pastry made with sweet potato purée, milk, egg, granulated sugar and butter, in the shape of a sweet potato. Imo-jochu: a type of alcohol that uses their natural sugars in the distillation process. Stay tuned for more recipes from Ms. Nishikori!
