The word Oyako means parent and child in Japanese. The main ingredients of this dish are chicken and egg so you can figure out where the name came from.
Oyakodon (親子丼), is a quick, easy, yummy and filling dish along with Gyudon, but the good things about this dish are not only those. It is low cost and very balanced from a nutrition perspective. So it is popular among families who have growing kids.
I also had this dish quite often as my mom was a busy woman. She knew no one (including my dad) will complain about this dish.
What I find interesting is that although beef is expensive in Japan, we find many cheap chain store restaurants that specializes in Gyudon, but none for Oyakodon. On the other hand, there are restaurants on the rather higher class range that serves Oyakodon that is a bit different from the ones made at home, made with good quality ingredients or by using a different method.
So as you can see, Oyakodon may look easy to prepare, but it is actually a dish that is much more profound!
In our class, you will learn how to prepare dashi in an authentic way, and by using domestically grown chicken and eggs, also how to make Oyakodon that is as delicious as the ones served at the restaurants!
