F2F Class Notes 9th May (Jesse)

Cooking is one of my main hobbies. I like to cook japanese food because i have been staying foreign country for quite a lot time and always missing my home taste. But some difficulty in foreign life is very hard to buy some japanese traditional materials i often buy japanese ingredients when i visit japan and bring it back to my home. Yesterday I cooked a kind of fish but it’s frozen. In Japense cuisine we dont like to use frozen fish because it’s not so fresh so last day i only stewed the fish because i can’t buy any fresh fish in shanghai.
