My husband and I were living in Japan, He was in the Navy.
We had made friends with local Japanese and the women wanted to see how I baked . I shared one of my favorite recipes, Chocolate Chip Cookies off the package of chips from my childhood. The ladies were excited and we had a great time reading the instructions and then the delicious moment when they come out of the oven and they got to taste what we made. It was sharing my oldest childhood memory with them of my mother teaching me off the package.

That's pretty cool.  I've been to Japan (and will be going back in a few months) but know that there is not as much baking there since not as many people own ovens (stovetops, microwaves, and specialty appliances seem to be the thing in large cities.)  Glad to know there are bakers there, too.  Maybe when I go back I'll find some of those and won't have to rely on the bakery so much. :)

Thanks for sharing your great experience.  Japan is one of the few places that I would like to visit someday just to see what it's like.

My husband went to Japan before we were married.  His son was stationed there.  He loved visiting the country as well as his son.
