You may ask what is “Yakko”?
Well, you probably already know what it is.
It’s another name for “tofu”.
I don’t know why but we often use the term “yakko” to describe tofu dishes.
One of my favorite leaf vegetables.
It’s crunchy, juicy, and I love the crunchy texture and the slight sweetness.
Radish is something I almost always have in my fridge.
Rice, a slice of soft tofu, and a mountain of fresh veggies, as well as fixings, such as grated ginger and chopped scallion.
Simple garlic chili sauce: garlic chili paste, soy sauce, vinegar, sugar, oil
Very refreshing and satisfying.
This is a kind of lunch I can eat everyday.
By the way, these plates are also hand-made.
Since I don’t have much experience, when I put glaze on, I have some rough idea of the color my plates are going to be, but other than that I really have no idea of how (how dark, light, etc.) they will look.
So it’s always a kind of surprise when I go pick them up at the studio.
Yes, I still need to practice, but it’s so satisfying to eat out of a bowl my hands created.
