Listen: Japanese home cooking with Ivan Orkin and Chris Ying

We are talking about Japanese home cooking this week, and not ramen or sushi! Think curry, omelets, and quick fried noodles. Tomoko Imade Dyen, culinary director of Japan House in Los Angeles, shares the everyday foods enjoyed by Japanese families. Sonoko Sakai, author of Japanese Home Cooking, tells us about the origins of the Japanese curry everyone makes at home. Ivan Orkin and Chris Ying (The Gaijin Cookbook) give us a lesson in Japanese kid-food, and chef Shintaro Okuda, of NYC's Bar Moga, teaches us how to make the delicious fried rice omelet, omurice.
