Recipe Flyers Now In Store!


To complement the start of our new initiative to help people cook Japanese food at home, Japan Centre has introduced a selection of recipe flyers directly in our shop to guide you on your way to creating delicious, authentic Japanese meals at home easily.

So how does it work?
Each recipe is uniquely colour-coded to help you find the right ingredients at our Japan Centre shop. All you have to do is choose the recipe that you want to create and then find the coloured logo next to the ingredients that will be required.

What recipes are currently available?
Our current selection of Japanese recipes includes:

• Sukiyaki
A hotpot style meal of thinly sliced meat and vegetables cooked in a sweet soy flavoured soup.
• Tempura
Tempura is a popular dish of different meats, seafood and vegetable deep fried in a light and crispy batter.
• Temaki-Zushi
One of the easiest and most fun to make varieties of sushi, made by rolling up rice and different ingredients in a sheet of nori seaweed.
• Okonomiyaki
Okonomiyaki literally means “Griled as you like it”. A delicious savoury dish that can be made with many different ingredients.
• Miso Soup
A staple of the Japanese diet, eaten with many meals it is healthy, delicious and easy to make.
• Shabu-Shabu
Shabu-Shabu is similar to sukiyaki, but the ingredients are cooked separately to each other and eaten with a more savoury sauce.
• Yakisoba
Another popular Japanese dish often available at festivals. These noodles taste great and can be made very easily at home.

Why not help us create more recipes?
At Japan Centre, we highly value the feedback we get from our customers, so please let us know in the comments if there are any other Japanese food recipes you would like to see at Japan Centre or had any suggestions about our current recipes.

    Sounds like a brilliant idea! I can’t wait to try some sukiyaki! There is a typo on the “try someything new” stamp ;)

    This is a cool idea. :)
    Other good ones will be different variations on curry or cream stew.

    Perhaps this is getting ahead of ourselves recipewise but an idea would be to do series for special occations or of different genres. Among others I’m thinking the various festivals and not least New Year’s foods. I tried to do the traditional New Year’s foods but found myself hard pressed to find both recipes and ingredients for such. Not to mention me having no real affiliation with any Japanese which left me rather at a loss what really -was- considered traditional New Year’s foods beside a few obvious ones. A recipe series dedicated to this end would not only teach me how to make the food but give me a lot of info about a significant part of Japanese culture :)

    Good idea, but I’m not in london and I usually buy your grocery from your online web-site…why not putting these recipe flyer online?So that everyone could be free to view it directly from your website?

    I love those new recipe flyers!
    I’m actually from Germany and just happened to be in London last weekend – and I picked up all 7 recipes, of course! Really good work! :)

    I also hope that all flyers will be available online, too. This would be really cool!
