The current project is making foods for celebrating SETSUBUN: ÉHO MAKI auspicious sushi rolls and FUKU MAMÉ roasted soy beans for tossing out bad things and tossing in good fortune.
For those who wish to post photos of their kitchen projects, comment and/or ask questions about this and other projects, you will need to be a member of TSUDOI Group — that is where DISPLAY & DISCUSSION takes place. If you are not already a member, please apply here.
Looking forward to seeing what Tsudoi members make in their kitchens…

What will you choose to include in your roll? Looking forward to seeing what you make in your kitchen.
Mamé maki, the ritual tossing of beans OUT (to be rid of bad things) and IN (to welcome good things) is done throughout Japan on Setsubun (celebrated this year, 2021, on February 2). Dry-roasted fuku mamé (“good fortune beans”) are addicatively delicious! Make your own and join the fun!
In Japan, young children make MONSTER MASKS (oni men 鬼面) for mamé maki bean tossing events. Here is a sample if you want to fashion your own.
