    Just One Cookbook 9th Year Anniversary Worldwide Giveaway

    January 1, 2020, was Just One Cookbook’s 9th year blog anniversary. One more year to a decade! Mr. JOC and I took some time to reflect the past 9 years, and we both agree that we couldn’t get this far without your support. This amazing community exists because you’ve made it happened. Thank you.

    We also want to mention that JOC is heavily supported by a wonderful team of five. They are uniquely talented with what they do, and we want to give a huge shoutout to them. They all work very hard to run this space.

    Earlier this month, we brainstormed new ways to deliver content and to bring you the best work we possibly can, while still maintaining the quality to which I hold us accountable. With you by our side, we look forward to bringing more creative and great content for the future.

    I wish I could make my favorite Pear & Almond Tart and share it with you. But since you’re all over the world, we decided to host a big worldwide giveaway to celebrate this moment with you.

    This is the workhorse for making the most delicious Japanese cheesecake, mochi, strawberry shortcake, melon pan and more.

    The Second Winner – 9.5-inch Kikuichi Nickel Warikomi Damascus Knife ($330)

    This is my favorite knife for everyday cooking. It is part of the Nickel Warikomi Damascus series from Kikuichi. The pattern you see on there is the 45 layer Damascus blade (AUS10 edge). The gorgeous handlebar is a rosewood handle and ebony ferrule. I fell in love with this knife at the shop and still love it the same today.

    This cast-iron heavy bottom pot is made for life. Not only it’s a beautiful handmade piece, it truly delivers exceptional cooking performance. Every cook needs one in the kitchen! I use mine to make a lot of our family’s favorite dinner which includes pork roast, teriyaki wings, braised herb chicken and more.

    The Fourth Winner – Instant Pot Ultra 10-in-1 6 QT ($110) or cash

    I’ve talked enough about why I love Instant Pot and how I use it for Japanese cooking. So I want you to have the same experience in using an Instant Pot. With this magical multicooker that helps speed up time, I hope you’ll find yourself cooking more healthy meals at home.

    The Fifth Winner – Thermapen® Mk4 ($99) or cash

    Read the reviews. You’ll learn why this thermometer is an essential tool to improve home cooking. If you’re in the kitchen with me testing recipes, you’d notice that I always have it nearby my side. It ensures accuracy and perfect results.
