The program aims to introduce the culture of Japanese food to Malawi and to demonstrate how Japanese food can be cooked using Malawi’s fresh locally-available resources. In the program, Mr. Manabu Nonaka, Chef at the Official Residence of the Japanese Ambassador demonstrates how to make “Chambo Sushi,” a creative Japanese-Malawian fusion dish using fresh chambo from Lake Malawi bought at the local market. Another Japanese dish is “Tempura,” which is deep-fried imported shrimps as well as vegetables which are also bought from the local market. The program was the first joint project between the Embassy of Japan and Zodiak Broadcasting Station, and it will be broadcasted on Zodiak TV on Saturdays at 11am in February 2017.
