Chapter 4: Summary of "Yakuzen Tsukurioki"


・ "Hotoku-ni" was a great cooking method that could make a week's worth of arrangement recipes based on the basic “Kasane-ni”!

Recently, I used to make simmered dishes by imitating what I saw, but it's best to learn this from a professional as soon as possible! (haha)

From the tips on how to cut vegetables, I learned a lot of things that are not written on the Internet, such as how to sprinkle salt, how long to cook, and criteria for completion!

“Hottoku-ni” has a sweet scent of vegetables and it is very sweet when we eat!

When I put a dash of soy sauce, it was delicious like I couldn’t stop eating it ♡ (ST, 30s)

・To me, “Tsukurioki” is meaning that make a large amount of foods and eat them in several days.

“Hottiku-ni” is a versatile dish that can be arranged and developed based on standard-dishes which is contrary to my expectation. I learnt that it can change to anything! (A ・ O 50s)
