Bloggers Around the World Round-up: Japan ... and guess what?

Inevitably this was going to come, the end of our trip ... eh ... stay in Japan. What shall we say? Where all our dreams fulfilled? What about yours?


Let's see what everyone was busy with. So, without any further ado, we start our Japanese food round up with ...

Some lovely Matcha Madeleines from Choclette. For sure you love that colour and ... most probably that cake stand as well. Who doesn't? Go, have a closer look. You can't see it all from here.


Next, have some Yakisoba from Elizabeth ... and don't pay too much attention to what her brother says. Judge for yourselves and get some noodles ready. That is, if you have any.

Caroline has something completely different for us: Jap Cakes. Is that any sort of trick? I wouldn't know. Do YOU remember Jap Cakes? No? Then have a look and find out some more details ...


Before we leave, let me remind you of something you read here on this blog some time ago, something with rice and salmon: Rice Balls with Spring Onions and Smoked Salmon.


However, what is travelling without some surprises. So, here it comes ...
Ruth still has to offer us some Japanese food. Let's grab some nice tofu and go for Lemon & Ginger Soba Noodles with Tofu and Salmon Gari. Above that, if you want some Matcha ice-cream, you have to check out Ruth's blog at another time.


Thanks for all who had a share! It's always be a pleasure to travel with you. 
Did you miss your blog entry? Yes, we missed it, too. Or maybe it's just some great misunderstanding and I didn't see it. In that case, let me know. In the other case, just hang on as we travel westwards ... to ... have a guess ... maybe it's simply inevitably ... it couldn't be any other way ...


INDIA

Do I have to say anything more? You know what to do, don't you?
In that case ...
  1. Leave a comment with a link to your post here in this very post, below (ha ha - can't comment anywhere else on that post). 
  2. Link to my blog and this challenge in your post.  
  3. Use the "Bloggers Around the World" badge (the one you find at the beginning and end of this post ... you know!).  
  4. You can use a new or an old post, but it has to be adjusted accordingly (you know, all the linking). 
  5. Have fun and enjoy it (and maybe tell others)!
If we don't hear or see us again in this regard or connection, you know, we will meet here again at the 13th of May (Have you ever wondered why 13th?). 


In case you are lacking inspiration, just tune in to Christine & Christian here on this very blog. It's all about India.

  1. I have some soba noodles in the cupboard, but what I'm going to do right now is find out what these Jap cakes are all about. Thanks for the round-up Chris and I look forward to India - although they don't tend to go in for chocolate there! Mind you I got away with it this time.

    1. You are very welcome. That's how things are, I checked my large weighty Indian cookbook and no single mention of chocolate. Tough! But, wait until you see my next post.

    2. Hey Choclette - try 'chocolate barfi' in the faithful google. :-)

    3. Yep, we definitely have chocolate burfi here in Fort Kochi... it's a bit meh! I prefer traditional burfi!

    2. It inspires me to research the different cuisines - just need to work on the timescale of actually cooking it!

    1. Thanks a lot. I guess, that's the earliest entry we ever had. So, already for the first person it is a 100% hit.

  4. Ah India, a vast country with many cuisines... it is going to be hard to narrow recipes.... very excited to be joining you for the first time. I need to send you the link before May 13th correct? How much before?

    1. As far as I see it, I will be writing the round-up at some point during May 13th. So, even that day itself would be alright. However, somehow it feels better to see early on that there is participation.
      I'll be looking forward to what you will narrow it down.

    1. Indeed you did post your link. I was testing Google+ comments at that time and then returned to the old comments system. So it disappeared. I took note of it, though. Nevertheless, thanks a lot for posting again and of course for joining us.
