When I’m pushed for time and need an extra vegetable dish, this rangiri cucumber yuzu salad is the recipe I turn to most often. Essentially a cucumber sunomono (vinegared salad), it provides a nice splash of acidity and colour alongside fish, chicken, rice or miso soup. Rangiri or ‘random-cut’ refers to the chopping technique, or rather the visual effect it creates. It’s actually not random – or complicated – in the slightest. Read on for all the info and a few ideas for variations!
This summer, I fell in love with wafu pasta. All those incredible Japanese flavour combinations plus a classic Italian staple: what’s not to like? This delicious wafu spaghetti with garlic, lemon and miso salmon is easy, satisfying and ready in 10 minutes. Fork or chopsticks? You decide!

Today I’d like to share a cheat’s version of a sauce that’s quite hard to find ready-made in the UK: ponzu shōyu (ポン酢醤油). It’s a great match for umami vegetables like broccoli, as well as more classical fish or tofu applications.
