….The time spent having dinner with family is always something to be thankful for, and it is always fascinating to clearly see Siwoo’s gradual growth. Today, we ordered various delicious dishes at the Japanese restaurant Seiya. Since our family enjoys Japanese cuisine, we shared the food and exchanged stories from the past week and discussed various family plans, making it a cozy and relaxed gathering.

Today’s new favorite for my grandson Siwoo was the shrimp and mushroom risotto. Japanese-style risotto bursts with umami, perfectly suiting our taste buds. The cheese was moderately incorporated, and the various mushrooms seasoned with soy sauce added a refreshing touch, making it Siwoo’s new top pick. I tried to remember the taste and observed it closely to recreate it. I soaked dried shiitake mushrooms in warm water to make a broth, seasoned it with @comble0’s tsuyu, and created my own risotto, jotting down different recipes and perfecting it.

For Siwoo, who even eats okra, I lightly sautéed it to add a beautiful touch of color. Finally, I plated the dish, and the Japanese-style shrimp and mushroom risotto was complete.

I started organizing recipes that my family likes. I learned these recipes from some chefs and popular blogs. May my daughters remember mama's food.
