Hokkai at Home with Peter

Hokkai at Home with Peter (72) from Heiloo: “For my second carrier, I ran a small hotel in France. There weren’t many restaurants in the neighborhood so I decided to cook for the guests myself. Fortunately, I got a lot of positive feedback and soon most nights I was busy preparing dinner. One could say that cooking is a hobby that went out of hand. I only use fresh products, but since Hokkai Kitchen is one of my favorite restaurants, I became more curious about their freshly frozen products. I did not expect too much of it but now I am in fact very enthusiastic. The quality is phenomenal and I will surely use it more often! Another advantage during this period is that it’s very convenient to have a freezer full of healthy and tasty food, when I can  go out only once a week to do the groceries.”

Peter shares three of his Hokkai-creations with us: Sake Saikyozuke, Ebi-fry and Okonomiyaki. Scroll down for the recipes.
