Peko Peko Charity Cookbook for Japan

Best of the Web

There are few better ways to celebrate a country’s culture than through its food. Thus, when a 9.0-magnitude earthquake shook Japan this spring, some of the Internet’s favorite cooks united to pay tribute to the country’s rich culinary traditions.


Peko Peko: A Charity Cookbook for Japan is a project started by three well-known food bloggers: Stacie Billis of One Hungry Mama, Rachael Hutchings of La Fuji Mama and Marc Matsumoto of No Recipes. They joined forces with a host of their fellow bloggers to put together around 50 Japanese and Japanese-inspired recipes for the whole family. “Peko peko” is a way of saying “I’m hungry” in Japanese, particularly for kids.


The list of contributors is enough to make any food blog follower’s jaw drop — including Sara Kate Gillingham-Ryan of The Kitchn, Alice Currah of Savory Sweet Life and Amanda Hesser and Merrill Stubbs of Food 52, just to name a few.


All of the proceeds from the cookbook will go toward Japanese earthquake relief, so stay tuned for its release by keeping up on the Peko Peko blog. Bonus: You also get a sneak peek of cookbook recipes, like Currah’s Peko Peko Udon. Peko peko!

    I love coffee as well so this is going to be fun I’ve alyaws heard you should put cold water into your coffee maker before you brew it. I have no idea why this is, but I’ve alyaws done it and it alyaws comes out well.My favorite coffee beans are Pete’s Coffee Major Dickison blend. It makes the perfect cup of coffee. Not too weak, not too strong, just right. Of course, a lot of that has to do with how you grind the beans, but it’s a great coffee. I also like Tanzanian Peaberry. It has a fruity after taste that is very smooth and nice.I have a Cuisinart coffee maker that works very well. I’ve had a couple of those expensive ones that grind the beans for you then drop them in the basket and brew it, and they just stunk. When the second one died on us, we got the Cuisinart and we’ve never looked back.
