    ‘Oyako’ means ‘Parent and Child’. In this recipe, Chicken and Eggs are used, thus this dish is called ‘Oyak Don. This is one of the dishes that I cook most often.

    Miso Mackerel Don

    There is one dish that I have been very fond of since my childhood. It’s a dish of Mackerel simmered in sweet miso sauce. Sadly I can’t cook it here in Melbourne because it is too hard to find fresh Mackerel. I have seen Spanish Mackerel in a fish shop, but not the Mackerel that …
