Chicken Sashimi

There is a yakitori-ya ( yakitori-restaurant) in my home town.
It is called TORIKIN.

Every year, when I go back to Japan, I go to TORIKIN to eat Tori-sashi.

Here is Tori-sashi.


It is sashimi of raw chicken.
On the photo, there are breast fillets, gizzards and livers.

You eat them with soy sauce and grated garlic or ginger.
It have to be absolutely fresh, or you would have a risk of food poisoning.
That's why we never make it at home in general.
It is a famous gastronomic dish in south of japan.

Beef sashimi and Horse sashimi are also famous there.
All of them need very good quality and very fresh meat.

I also have Nankotsu-age(fried cartilage) and Tokikawa-senbei(cracker made with chicken skin).
They are very crunchy, and of cause it goes very good with a glass of beer or sake!

Simple butter biscuits


This is a recipe of butter biscuit which I often bake since I was a child.

It is crunchy biscuit.

I don’t use a kitchen scale.

I use a measuring jug of  Pyrex to measure flour and sugar.

And for butter, I buy a bloc of butter (125g) and cut into 5 pieces (25g each).

200g flour

100g butter, at room temperature

100g raw cane sugar

1 egg yolk


  1. Beat the butter and sugar until it becomes creamy.
  2. Add the egg yolk and mix well.
  3. Add the flour and knead with hand.
  4. Form it into a ball of dough. If the dough is too dry, add 1 or 2 table spoon of milk.
  5. Wrap it in plastic food wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  6. Preheat the oven to 180 °C
  7. Roll out the dough to about 5mm. Cut into small squares.
  8. Place the biscuits on the baking trays covered with baking paper. Bake in the oven for around 15 minutes.
