Japans koken en sake drinken met Tosao | Cool Japan


This is something my Dutch grandma
would typically make. A slab of meat, cooked in butter. FOR COOL JAPAN, WE ASKED
7 PEOPLE FROM AMSTERDAM ABOUT THEIR FASCINATION
WITH JAPAN I am Tosao van Coevorden,
I’m half Japanese, half Dutch. I am the chef owner of ‘De Japanner.’ I’m going to make
a typical Japanese/Dutch dish. When we think of Dutch herring,
we think of it with onion and gherkin. I’m going to incorporate the shiso leaves
into this dish. This is it. A shiso leaf. For me, this is the embodiment
of Japanese cuisine. It has a lot of flavour,
it’s very refreshing. It goes with almost everything,
so I use it a lot. There we go. Dutch herring
with shiso leaf, like my grandma made. I learned Japanese cuisine mostly
from my Japanese mother. Not just my Japanese mother,
but my Japanese grandmother as well. When I’m cooking, a lot of things
remind me of my grandma’s garden… and kitchen, and the way she cooks. ‘De Japanner’ is
a typical Amsterdam ‘izakaya.’ ‘Izakaya’ is the Japanese word for pub. The literal translation is:
‘We serve drinks here.’ So yeah, a pub. It’s a place where historically,
mostly men would gather after work… to discuss the day, get drunk,
and discuss mundane things. There we go. I found it.
This is a sake from Tosa. That’s where my family is from. It’s tradition in Amsterdam
that when you get Dutch gin… you bow to drink it. So let’s do it. I think that if my Japanese mother
and grandmother would come here… they would enjoy it… but my grandma would find it
way too noisy. Way too crowded. DISCOVER YOUR FASCINATION
