Littleneck clams are in season right now, so Rika will be introducing this original recipe inspired by Fukagawa-meshi, some of Tokyo's regional cooking. They'll also be learning how to make a soup with oysters and turnips, which are sweeter and tenderer in the spring, as well as nokke tofu, or tofu topped with whitebait and shrimp, rounding off the three seafood dishes for this episode.

In this episode, chef Rika makes chikuzen-ni, a local favorite from her hometown of Fukuoka beloved for the delicious texture of its culinary ingredients. Perfect for family gatherings or even just as a side in a bento lunch, this is an easy-to-make simmered dish once you just memorize the proportions of the seasonings. For the side, they make eggs with tuna and green onions mixed in and cooked until golden brown.
