It is said that emergency food must be incorporated into daily life to prevent this from happening. However, there are many things that are not tasteful to eat on their own. Is there a way to eat it deliciously?
Therefore, in order to learn the technique of arranging emergency rations that can be incorporated into everyday meals, I have experienced the "Gochibo" lunch, which is a remake of emergency rations into a "feast". Classic emergency foods such as hardtack and alpha rice will be transformed into an exquisite menu!
"Feast" is an initiative to think about disaster prevention while having fun by eating emergency food that has been transformed into a "feast" by the chef. At the event held in Matsudo City, Chiba Prefecture, two people, Chef Tajima, the owner of a French restaurant that is very popular in the local area, and Chef Kimura, who is in charge of cooking "Gochibo" in general, wielded their skills.
Transformed emergency foods are dried bread, alpha rice, dried rice cakes, roasted chicken, and bar-type dietary supplements (such as calorie mate). These will be reborn as a "feast" that makes it no wonder that you can line up in a first-class restaurant with a little effort.
1. 1. A dish that you can easily pick up with a hardtack
Kanpan is a staple of emergency food, but it is not very popular. Is it because it is hard and the water in the mouth is taken away, and it feels dull? The hardtack can be transformed into an exquisite ingredient just by dipping it in milk.
Put vegetables and cheese on a dry bread soaked in milk and bake it, and you have a stylish dish like a party menu! The hard-to-eat kanpan has changed to chewy, and some participants said, "I didn't know what it was made of until it was explained." The softened hardtack is also recommended for infants and the elderly who have weak chewing ability.
2. With your favorite sauce! Millefeuille of dried rice cake
If it is early, the dried rice cake will soften in about 5 to 10 seconds after pouring water. I layered it with vegetables like millefeuille and added 6 kinds of sauce. You can use your favorite dressing and seasonings. You can change the cooking method according to the seasoning, such as boiled vegetables, baked vegetables, and raw vegetables.
3. 3. Alpha rice on the menu
Alpha rice is cooked rice that can be eaten simply by adding hot water or water and leaving it to stand. Seasoned items such as Gomoku rice, curry, and pilaf are also on sale. This time, I put the unflavored one in a chowder soup full of vegetables. Alpha rice is familiar with creamy soup. Take a break from the warmth.
Alpha rice is said to be tastier than before, but it still feels strange compared to cooked white rice. Adding it to the soup will reduce the discomfort and accentuate the grainy texture. Especially, it is a recommended arrangement method for those who are not good at raw alpha rice.
Four. Chicken is the protagonist of the table
The image of emergency food is only carbohydrates, but "side dishes" are also on sale. The chicken roast used this time is pre-heated and seasoned, so it can be eaten immediately after opening. Chef Kimura sprinkles spices on this chicken, roasts it, and tops it with vegetables stewed in tomatoes. A dish that will be the main character of the dining table has been completed.
The chicken is dry, so the taste seems to be different. For example, it's a tuna can that has been fried to remove water. However, I don't really care because it's roasted again, and the deep seasoning is also exquisite. I want to drink beer.
Five. Even dessert is an emergency food
Dessert is also an emergency food. A bar-type dietary supplement has been transformed into tiramisu. All you have to do is combine a cream mixed with cream cheese, sugar and fresh cream with a bar soaked in coffee. The bar is transformed into something like a moist sponge, and when you eat it with cream, tiramisu is completed in your mouth! The point is to add it to strong coffee.
All of them were so delicious that I couldn't think of them as emergency foods, and I just ate too much. I want to buy emergency food and make it! Even though it's a chef's recipe, it's just a recipe that can be easily practiced at home, so be sure to arrange it to suit your taste. There are many ideas that are useful in an emergency.
In recent years, a new stocking method, the "rolling stock method," has become widespread. Instead of stockpiling until the set deadline, it is a method of "preparing while eating" by incorporating emergency food into your daily diet and buying as much as you eat. Let's increase the variation of the arrangement recipe and eat it deliciously!
It has been 20 years since the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake. The way of thinking about emergency rations and the emergency rations themselves have changed significantly. What's in the fridge? Are there any forgotten ingredients in the back of the shelf? First, let's check what is in the house. You may find unexpected "feast" seeds.
