Food Bucket List

NOTE: This page is due to change shortly – check back for updates!

  1. Hi, what about learning how to make okonomiyaki. This is the hardest Japanese dish so far that I learned how to cook.

    • Ooh, yes I will add them to my list, thank you. I’ve never even made normal pancakes before (aside from packet mixes) so that might be a challenge ๐Ÿ˜› I’d like to try to make Takoyaki at some point too, but I may need a Takoyaki cooker for that, and no octopus!!

  2. I have lists like this in multiple places. The problem is I keep adding faster than I can make them! Your recipes are way more involved though than anything I could ever dream – best wishes on it.

    • Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve only put down the things that I would find either really hard of have never even remotely tried to do. I keep adding ones too! I need a cooking session soon to cross some off the list!

    You could also try making udon noodles! I’ve tried doing it by hand a few weeks ago, it was fun! Like making bread, only thinly sliced and boiled haha

    • Is it that simple? I always assumed making pasta or noodles would be so difficult :S I may have to research recipes and techniques and add it to my list. Thanks!

      • Nekodomo says:

        Actually they made things easier by churning the dough themselves. All we had to do was roll it out thinly, cut and boil it, then all that’s left to do is eat! It took probably less than an hour, and that included eating haha

  4. Some great dishes on your list! I’m about to go check out your protein ball recipe! I’ve made tamagoyaki, a little hard to do at first but it was amazing, but even more so were the steamed meat buns! Everyone loved them and kept requesting them over and over. Good luck getting through your list…I’ve got a stack of recipe cards :s

    • I’ve been trying tamagoyaki for a while now, and steamed meat buns, but they have never been quite perfect enough to post about (perfectionist, oh dear!). I love tamagoyaki but I can’t eat too much of the egg yolk! But egg white tamagoyaki with spring onions is yummy!
