These are not your father’s Twinkies. Boke Bowl’s delicate beauties come with obsessive touches like vanilla beans scraped into the batter, thanks to pastry gal Elizabeth Green. Miso paste, of all things, lends a dulce de leche flavor profile to the filling. Secure a nonstick éclair pan in advance, available online and at kitchen shops. Save leftover pudding for a bonus dessert, best topped with whipped cream.

Garlic-Miso Chicken Wings
My kids love chicken wings. I usually use drumettes for them so they can easily enjoy these mini-drumsticks. This recipe was originally from my Japanese friend who used to live in San Francisco because of her husband’s work. We had our first and second kids around the same time (then she had a third) and our kids played really well together.  Since she’s shared this original version with me, I changed the recipe to fit my family’s taste. The recipe is very easy to prepare and I hope you will like these wings. The combination of garlic, miso, soy sauce, and mirin is simply amazing.

Black Cod with Miso
This sweet and silky fish dish from Nobu New York has been cloned at restaurants all over the country. It's fairly straightforward to make. The fish marinates overnight in just enough sake and miso to coat. Quickly searing the cod, then finishing it in the oven, creates a beautifully burnished crust.

Sesame Miso Mustard
I've always chosen mustard over ketchup but recently rediscovered mustard, not just as a spread but as a dip as well. It's really low-fat and not very caloric, especially in the whole grain form, which is less processed than a yellow mustard. Whole grain mustard also has a nice kick that isn't as strong Dijon.

Miso Soup
When it comes to creating a rich and balanced soup, the trick to keep in mind is always make sure you're developing layers of flavor. This starts with the broth and should be carried through to the garnishes. This  miso soup begins with a simple kombu-based dashi (Japanese broth), then various flavors are added (soy sauce, ginger, Sriracha sauce, rice wine vinegar, and sake), followed by white miso, the main ingredients (tofu, shiitake mushrooms, kale, and sautéed scallions), and finally topped with a sprinkle of diced fresh scallions.

Azuki Beans
Although we generally think of them as a favorite Japanese food, adzuki beans are believed to have been domesticated in the Himalayas several thousand years ago. By 1,000 B.C. they appeared in China, then later in Japan, where today they are second only to soybeans. They are small and cook quickly, and the tannins in their skins give the soup added color and flavor. This light miso soup is perfect for those occasions when you want to take the edge off your appetite without stuffing yourself to the gills, or when you want a lot of broth with just a little bit of substance to it. You could also add some small cubes of tofu for extra protein.

Baachan's Miso Soup
For 92 years (and counting!), my baachan (Japanese grandmother) has been making this soup. She raised four beautiful daughters through World War II — so she knows a little something about comfort food. My big sis and I sought out baachan's recipe, which is nothing like your watered-down sushi bar miso. This is hearty, comforting, and as authentic as Japanese food gets. See all miso recipes.
