Pad Thai is a stir fry dish consisting of flat rice noodles, a protein such as shrimp, chicken, or tofu, with bean sprouts, peanuts, scrambled egg, and a special blend of ingredients to create a sweet and sour sauce.  Authentic Pad Thai typically contains tamarind, but this recipe uses a blend of oyster sauce, soy sauce, cooking sake, and peanut butter to achieve a deliciously funky, umami taste.  You can also consider adding a pinch of brown sugar to your Pad Thai Sauce if you prefer a sweeter flavor profile.

Are you familiar with the savory, chewy skewered dumplings called Mitarashi Dango? Mitarashi Dango are a variety of wagashi, or traditional Japanese confection.  They have a similar chewy texture to mochi.  However, they are actually made from a combination of different flours instead of steamed rice.  They typically consist of round dumpling balls, served in sets of 3 to 5 per skewer.  They are coated in a savory-sweet soy sauce glaze with an enticing and light umami flavor profile.  While you can roll the dumpling dough into small balls (around the size of a nickel), in this recipe we suggest cutting heart-shaped dumplings out of the dough with a cookie cutter as a kawaii alternative.
