Mapo Tofu: Inspired by My Hero Academia (gluten free)

Inspired by My Hero Academia, I’m making Fuyumi’s Mapo Tofu recipe, as very politely demanded by everyone’s favourite little firecracker, Katsuki Bakugou! This Sichuan Mapo Tofu is so flavourful, delicious, and comforting. I can totally understand why he was so desperate to get his hands on the recipe. Served with some fresh rice, I am sure you will be hooked and this dish will become a staple in your house over these cold months ahead!

Karasuno Roll Cake: Inspired by Haikyu!! (gluten free)

Inspired by Haikyu!! I’m making a Karasuno roll cake! This show is so amazing and I love it so much, I wanted to make a fun treat to capture the “Fly High” spirit of some of the best anime boys! I made a light and fluffy vanilla cake with a chocolate whipped cream filling, made black by using activated charcoal. Gotta get those Karasuno colors! The cake was really fun to design/decorate, it was easy to make, and was really tasty. I put Hinata Shoyo getting ready for a perfect spike on it, the Karasuno “Fly High”, and their iconic crows on this cake. Taking the extra time to pipe out the design was honestly not that hard, and made for a really unique and fun cake. Totally happy with how that came out!

Zaru Soba: Inspired by My Hero Academia (gluten free)

Inspired by My Hero Academia, I’m making Shoto Todoroki’s favourite meal, Zaru Soba! This dish is super quick and simple to whip up, and it is also very light and refreshing. The cold soba noodles are chewy with a great earthy taste and they pair so well with the flavourful mentsuyu dipping sauce. The bursts of fresh wasabi really brings the whole dish together! This meal is an easy way to channel your favourite half hot half cold hero!

Gojo’s Kikufuku (Zunda & Cream stuffed Mochi): Inspired by Jujutsu Kaisen (gluten free)

Inspired by Jujutsu Kaisen, I’m making Gojo Sensei’s Kikufuku! These mochi are stuffed with a delicious whipped cream and Zunda, a sweetened edamame paste. The dough is soft and chewy, the zunda has a sweet and earthy flavour, and the whipped cream came out perfectly! I used a bit of the vanilla bean paste that I brought back from Japan and it was a real game changer (so if you can get your hands on some, it’s totally worth it!). This Kikufuku transported me back to walking around Nara, Japan, freshly pounded mochi in hand. So I’d call this a win!
