  • The tempura means time — the Portuguese only ate the fried seafood during the time of lent — hence tempura became associated with battered seafood

  • Hello Taiji, i just came accross your videos a couple of days back and since then watched a dozen of them in succession….. Your videos are very professionally made.. it really appreciated the kind of home cooking you do all by yourself staying in Germany… The history/background of each recipe you narrate is very interesting… Your hand skills are excellent !! And the most important part i like is you don't waste any ingredients… Your work is neat and clean, and the wholeheartedness and respect for food is really appreciated…. All in all great job and keep going….
    Love from India……,❤️🙏🙏

  • So clear and well presented. Do Japanese cooks use regular gluten flour only, or with rice flour? Confused.

  • Keine Kommentare in deutscher Sprache?
    Tempura im Restaurant ist gerne mal zu fett. Die angeg. Temperatur für das Öl ist für mich jetzt der Ausschlag zum Selbermachen. Das Vorgehen wird in allen Videos so gut erklärt…..Vielen Dank, dass Sie die japanische Küche uns Langnasen so viel näher bringen.
    Herzlichen Gruß, Maria
