Think of this as a companion blog entry to my 3 Minute Cooking one. I didn’t even know they used to show Viva Gourmet back on UTB’s analog block on KSCI then. Until I found a small clip of it on an old tape. I never watched Viva Gourmet even on their subchannel. Sometimes I would keep it on as background noise, but not actively watch it. The show was only in Japanese with no subtitles so it was a little hard for me to understand. There is even a whole play list on youtube.
Here are some from Viva Gourmet and a JFC commercial.
