Description

Okinawa is the southernmost region of Japan known for its unique culture, warm climate, beaches and the people with the longest life expectancy in the country. Experts have found four main reasons why the Okinawans live longer than other Japanese and it is interesting to note that one of it is the food they eat. 

In this course, we will take a look into what the one of the longest living people in the world eats. We will take a peek into what they usually put on their table. We will also learn the ingredients they commonly use and how their food are prepared. It would be a surprise to students to know that Okinawan food are simple and easy to prepare. Though some of the ingredients they use may be hard to find outside Okinawa, you can find substitutes which are more readily available in most places and are also mentioned in this course. 

This course is divided into several sections and in each section you will learn several recipes for a specific main ingredient commonly used in Okinawa cuisines. It was surprising for me to learn that pork is a vital part of Okinawa cuisines and you will learn several ways to cook pork the Okinawa way. In addition to pork, you will also learn how to prepare Okinawa ingredients such as Okinawa soba, mimigar or pork ears, bitter melon or goya and shima rakkyo or island shallots among others. You will also learn common cooking methods and techniques used in preparing Okinawa food.

This course is filled with so much fun, information and deliciousness from every Okinawa dish you will learn to cook. Start with the first lecture now and enjoy every food you will prepare. Have fun in the kitchen.

YouTuber & Home chef from the Philippines who lives in Japan

I'm a home chef from the Philippines who now lives in Japan. We love to travel around Japan and we prefer to stay long in each visit so I can continue to learn and create recipes from each place that we go to. Most of the cooking class I teach on Udemy are simple, traditional and Japanese-inspired dishes.

Online Entrepreneur based in Japan

We established this company called Haamalu LLC in Tokyo (registered in 2013). Luckily, Online Advertisement Department hit the market and eventually we don't need to think about money anymore at all.

Depending on our mood, we change places to live in every 3 months and subjects to study. No Alarm, No Boss, No worry. This simple life is really awesome. Let us share these idea with you.

2013年4月に西麻布/六本木で会社(登記名:Haamalu合同会社)を立ち上げました。運良く、同年11月にメディア事業/広告事業が軌道に乗り始め、ありがたいことにお金の心配を一切しなくてよくなりました。それ以降は奥さんと一緒に毎月住む場所(国、地域)を変えながら旅を続けています。過去15ヶ月の間に住んだ場所:ネブラスカ、ニューヨーク、シカゴ、サウスカロライナ、モントリオール、バンクーバー、トロント、パタヤ、バリ島、ギリ島、宜野湾、阿波池田、大歩危、彦根(いずれも30日ずつ)。

(追記)カナダのモントリオールにいるときに奥さんの妊娠が発覚したので、今はおとなしく石垣島で隠居生活をしています。ほぼ毎日、米原ビーチでシュノーケルをしているので見かけたら声をかけてください。
