On the 15th, “Tohoku Coco Kara” is a daily gourmet travelogue that visits the “dining table” of foreigners living in Miyagi Prefecture to learn about delicious recipes and their thoughts about their hometown.
The guides are the Plant Brothers of MONKEY MAJIK, who are based in Miyagi Prefecture and work in music, sake brewing and beekeeping. Two Canadians enjoy a diverse culinary world.
Six groups living in Miyagi Prefecture will appear on the program. Stir-fried pumpkin vines that are popular with Nepalese families, nomadic lamb feasts, bright red borscht full of Ukrainian memories, home-cooked dishes from Chile and Vietnam, etc.
When encountering ingredients and dishes that are not usually familiar in Japan, why not hear the history and thoughts of the people who lived side by side in the area?

The tour guides are Canadian MONKEY MAJIK and PLANT brothers who live in Miyagi. The two who love farming and cooking are very interested in the ingredients and recipes taught by the performers.
Currently, 1 in every 100 people living in Miyagi Prefecture is a foreigner. I’d be happy if the distance could be shortened by food.
COMMENT FROM MONKEY MAJIK PLANTS BROTHERS
In fact, I learned that many people came to Japan from different countries and lived in Miyagi.
Through the scenery of each table, you can feel the deep love for Miyagi and hometown where you live now. We all love to eat, but some dishes are encountered for the first time in the show, and again, the universe is immeasurable. Not to mention the food culture and traditions, all the people present are great, please pay attention to their character!
