Osaka University & Osaka Gas: Academic Cooking, Vol. 14, Archeological Research re the Delicious Bowls of Rice we enjoy

2011-11-18 (Fri) 6:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.

Kaitokudo for the 21st Century and Osaka Gas have jointly held lectures of a new type, Academic Cooking series lectures, consisting of a lecture on a special type of food and cooking and eating that food. The 14th "volume" of lectures will be held on Friday, November 18, 2011. NAKAKUBO Tatsuo, assistant professor, Archaeological Research Center Osaka, will give a lecture on archeological research regarding a delicious bowl of rice.

The Japanese people's staple food is rice. Thanks to the wet-rice cultivation coming from China during the Yayoi Period, many people living on the Japanese archipelago began to eat rice. However, by examining earthenware used for cooking, the method for cooking rice is found to have been developed through trial and error. Why not think about the dietary culture developed by our ancestors while eating rice cooked over a fire?
