Inaka Quiche?

A new week, a new quiche. Today we made this based, potato and onion quiche. I thought it was a twist on the classic Quiche Lorraine, but on checking our Japanese cookbook it seems it's known as "inaka quiche " which to translates as "country quiche "(but without the bucolic ideal that it's English title conjours up!)

So what to call it?

Victoria Sandwich

A true taste of Britain... Victoria sandwich. This tearoom classic can be found all over the UK, and of course in Tokyo at the Three Little Pigs! 

Bon appetite!

Freshly Baked Scones

Straight from the Three Little Pigs oven.... scones. These are made with a combination of wholewheat and regular flour. So not only are they delicious, they are good for you too!

Lemon cake and a cup of tea

A new experience for me, sitting down being a customer. Relaxing with a slice of lemon drizzle cake and a cup of Ringtons Kenyan Gold tea.

Could get very used to this!

Busy bakers

We're asked to provide a gift selection for an event happening this weekend, so we've been busying ourselves baking oatmeal biscuits, flapjacks, brownies and these Ormskirk gingerbread.

Don't worry they're not all for this weekend, we've baked extra so you can still pop in and pick up a packet, or two!

Ormskirk Gingerbread

We are proud to offer, what are quite possibly, the only Ormskirk "style" Gingerbread for sale in Japan.

As somebody who grew up in Ormskirk, Lancashire, these biscuits were a part of my childhood. And aside from the odd packet of original Ormskirk Gingerbreads brought across by my parents when they visit, which apparently even then had been difficult to find in Ormskirk, I'd almost forgotten the taste of these Ginger cookies unique to the town of Ormskirk.

After a bit of research, and a lot of trial and error I think I've recreated a ginger biscuit that is faithful to it's origins. Of course most people have never heard of Ormskirk (either here in Japan or the UK based on my experience) and even fewer know of Ormskirk Gingerbread but these ginger biscuits/cookies are proving popular here in Tokyo.

So if you're ever in Tokyo please drop in a and pick up pack of, what are probably, the only Ormskirk "style" Gingerbread biscuits in Japan.

Shortbread Fingers

Recently it seems that the butter shortage, which has gripped Japan for the past 12 months or so, appears to have eased a little so it's high time we got some Shortbread Fingers back on the shelves. Hopefully with a regular supply of butter we'll be able to keep baking these goodies.

Minestrone Soup

Another week, another soup. This week we're serving a veg packed bowl of Minestrone. Served with a side-salad and a 'doorstep' slice of locally baked Panya no Donsuke bread. Enjoy!
