Yom Kippur

Have an easy fast.
This is a difficult holy-day to understand.
There is no “easy magic” in order to be written into the book of life.

  1. It is difficult to have a fast for me. Because I have to cook someting for my kids, even if I am in fast.
    Maybe I will snitch food. It is difficult to keep my Decision.

  2. Hi Lucy,
    Do you know this:
    Chirashi-don, what is the difference between this and Kaisendon?

    This was in a discussion with http://janetching.wordpress.com/ Gourmet Traveller in my links. Janet emailed me and this is what I know about it:
    “Hey Janet,
    I saw that comment, but because I’m not sure, I didn’t answer. I’m only learning!
    But in a couple of my books “chirashi” means “to scatter things.” So chirashi zushi is seasoned rice with toppings: raw fish, shellfish, cooked or cured fish or shellfish, vegetables, or omelette. Apparently, Tokyo-style chirashi zushi is all uncooked seafood. Osaka-style includes thin omelette strips.
    I only find one reference to “kaisen.” It appears to be a word for seafood in general. It’s in the title of a wonderful miso soup with lobster and salmon.
    Let me know what you find out; you’ve got me curious now!”

  3. Tess,
    That is funny question. I’m not sure. LOL

    When I was young, we don’t say Kaisendon. (Ex. Katsudon, Oyakodon ONLY)
    I think Kaisendon is new word. Don doesn’t’ use vinegared rice. Usually kaisendon doesn’t use vinegared rice.
    Anyway it depends on restraints(Sushi restrants or notsushi restrants) .
    It depends on area (Osaka-stile or Tokyo-style).
    That is my opinion. The other Japanese might have the other opinion.
    I try to ask my friend about it.

  4. Hmm, then maybe I need to modify my recipe with non-vinegar rice and next time I can make another recipe with vinegar. Thank you Tess and Lucy. It’s very interesting to learn all these.
