Sapporo Memories in a Travel Video + Homemade Langue de Chat Recipe

One of Sapporo’s most famous food icons is the langue de chat sandwich cookie. It’s French in origin but it’s enjoying quite a bit of popularity among locals and tourists alike.

An unforgettable Hokkaido Milk Bread, and why everyone should be making it

There are plenty of things I didn’t get to try during my very brief visit to Sapporo a few weeks ago, and one of them is Hokkaido breads and pastries. It’s a known fact that Hokkaido produces the best dairy products in all of Japan, so can we all just take a second to imagine …
