Feeder bassist launches Japanese cookery website

Taka Hirose offers up his chicken katsu curry recipe on the Cook Me Japanese blog

Feeder bassist Taka Hirose has launched his very own food and cookery website at Cookmejapanese.com.

The website, which includes recipes for fish, meat, noodle, rice and vegetable dishes, is, according to Hirose, made up of ways to cook “everyday simple Japanese food you can make cheaply and easily”. He adds:

It’s more like food Japanese people eat these days rather than authentic traditional Japanese food. We don’t make the dishes like those on Nobu’s menu or sushi everyday.

Recipes include smoked mackerel and mushroom rice, cold soba noodles with duck, chicken katsu curry, miso soup and tofu steak with vegetable mince. Hirose also shares his shopping tips on the site, recommending the best places to buy ingredients.

The website features a link to a Spotify playlist made for cooking along to. Funkin Cooking Time 1 includes tracks by James Brown, Curtis Mayfield and Kool And The Gang .

Feeder release their eighth studio album, ‘Generation Freakshow’, on April 23.
