This time, apart of the seasoning the Missus has come up with the real local Bento using only ingredients from Shizuoka Prefecture!
I have to say it was realized with the help of her own mother’s cooking and garden!
The rice she steamed for the bento is “Koshihikari” grown in Suntoh Gun in the Eastern part of the Prefecture!
The sweet pickled ginger were prepared by her mother. She seasoned it with golden and black sesame seeds.
As for the Shizuoka-grown red and green peppers she sliced them and stir-fried them before adding them to the rice.
The ingredients in the colorful side box were also all grown or bred in Shizuoka Prefecture!
She prepared two types of rolls with thin strips of pork belly wrapped around okra and thick leek before stir-frying them.
She placed them on a bed of lettuce with green lemon for design and seasoning!
The tamagoyaki were made “Bioran” eggs produced by Mr. Shimizu in Shizuoka City and very thin leeks. The kaki/persimmon come from her mother’s garden and the Ameera Rubbins Pearl Tomatoes are grown in Iwata city, in the Western part of the Prefecture!
It would certainly be fun to see what friends could come up with, using only local ingredients!
