TA Project iPhone case design by Maiko Nagao

At last! TA Project's super cool 'Let the kids play - Help support the kids of Fukushima' project has launched! You can grab one of my iPhone case design by donating to this awesome cause. Donations start at $5 and there are some cool T-Shirt designs by top notch Japanese artists to check out too! You can read all about it on the project site here!

Growing up in nuclear free New Zealand, I never would have imagined being caught up in a 'nuclear plant meltdown'. In fact before the 2011 Fukushima disaster, I don't think those words even existed in my vocabulary.

The TA project came together last year to support the children of Fukushima who had limited time a day to play outside. With the overwhelming support from people all over the world, they invited children for a 4 day camp in Osaka so they could escape the everyday stresses and just be kids again. And they're doing it all again this year with a few changes!

Please help support the children and rebuild Fukushima together!

P.S Why peaches? Peaches are a popular delicacy in Korimachi, Fukushima ;)

DIY: Roll your own sushi - at home

I share the same conundrum as Nami from Just one cookbook. Being Japanese, I too often get asked “Do you make sushi at home?” Well, to make great 'Nigiri' sushi, it takes a sushi chef years of mastering. However, we do make an easy form of sushi at home called 'Temaki Sushi' (Hand rolled/wrapped sushi).

You just need to serve the sushi rice, nori (seaweed sheet) and fillings in the middle of the table. Each person then hand rolls/wraps their own sushi with their preferred topping. This is why you could call it 'DIY sushi'!

View her full recipe and tutorial as well as other fabulous Japanese recipes here.

Now everyone can make sushi at home!
