Kombu Tsukudani

As someone who is Japanese-American, and makes Japanese food often, I make dashi on a fairly regular basis. I love dashi. I love using dashi. I hate that I always end up using the kombu once (mayyybe twice) and then throw it away. It seems like such a waste for a perfectly good product! So

Dashi

We’ll be using dashi in an upcoming recipe, so Shrimpy is here to show you how to make it from scratch! Ordinarily you’d discard the kombu after using it for dashi, but we’ll be posting a recipe that shows how to use used kombu for a side dish, coming up soon! Dashi from Japanese Soul

Caramelized Fig Ice Cream with Mascarpone and Honey Pistachios

The thing about having a YouTube cooking channel… is, OH DARN IT’S FIG SEASON, GUESS WE HAVE TO MAKE A BUNCH OF SEASONAL DISHES. Heh. Son said we should do more fig recipes “for search” and such, but I’m pretty sure he just wants an excuse for me to make more fig recipes. Sneaky man.

Weekly Wanderings 2020/7

Been doing a slightly better job of getting out of the house this week. Found a dino next to last week’s llama. I have our whole filming schedule planned out… And then shishito peppers were available from Imperfect Foods (that’s an affiliate link – we’ll both get $10 off if you use it!) and I

Incendiary Jalapeño Poppers

Mega Cat Studios reached out to me about their new video game that was coming out, called Bite the Bullet! If you follow our SushiCodes channel, you’ll know that Son and I are game devs, and also gamers. So we know how much work goes into launching a game, and therefore we are all about

Weekly Wanderings 2020/6

We actually left the house this week! We went for one (1) short walk and found a llama. Still dancin’, still rehearsing to eventually give you some Just Dance videos! I KNOW everyone says don’t start a 3rd YT channel. But. I can’t help myself. I just really prefer having separation of content, EVEN if

Iced Pumpkin Turmeric Latte

It’s pumpkin season! If the rumors are true, Starbucks is bringing back the pumpkin spice latte today. Who’s ready for their PSL fix?
