'The United Nations of Cookies'

In Japan, there are many savoury sweets — think chocolate-covered potato chips. My two boys, Seán and Stephen, don’t eat wasabi, as it is too spicy for kids. But if you use it to make sweets like a cookie, then the spiciness is gone but the savoury flavour is still in the cookies. For example, you can buy seaweed, wasabi and Cheddar sandwich cookies, or even a wasabi and Camembert version to have as a small bite with a beer in Japan. My boys love these. – Takashi Miyazaki, the owner of Miyazaki and Michelin-starred Ichigo Ichie in Cork
