The meaning of the word "cooking", which differs between France and Japan

Hello. “Bistroam”.

After "Winter"

On the calendar, it was Winter.

The day when I exchanged the words "It's cold"

It may have increased.

In such a case,

Heart warms

"Bistroam" cuisine

I would like you to come to eat.


Well, this time,

In France and Japan, it ’s called “cooking”

The meaning of words is different

Let me tell you.


The word “cooking” on the table

Do you think it makes sense?

For example, in baseball,

The pitcher picks up the batter without difficulty.

At that time, the pitcher

You say “cooked” easily.


In France, “food” is the same,

“Cooking” means “treating things properly”.

It means that · · ·


On the other hand, in Japan, as the kanji “Cooking” represents,

“Feel” the “reason” of things

It has the meaning.

This is the land and climate

While “rearing” “reason” that humans cannot do,

It expresses that we are blessed with nature.


So, the “cook” who cooks,

What does it mean?

French cuisine

“Cuisinje” means “person who can cook fire”.


Cuisinier fry the ingredients in a frying pan,

Boiled in a pan, grilled in an oven, etc.

With the cooking method on the horizontal axis,

Make it low or high,

With the vertical axis of how to put fire,

By the combination of both axes

“Handling things properly”.


In contrast to Japanese cuisine,

Than fire

Emphasis is placed on cutting the ingredients.

First, how to cut the ingredients

So that the ingredients are more suitable

"I'm paying for the reason".


So, with Japanese cuisine chefs

It means "a person who takes care of things".

The same words “cooking” and “cook”

The meaning changes across countries.


With that in mind,

"Cooking" in Bistroum

I hope you can taste it.


In the cold winter,

Cooked with heart

The magical ingredients

Please have fun.


All the staff are looking forward to your visit.
