Galleoneers is a monthly recipe subscription of recipe kits for families with children aged between 3 to 12 years old to discover a cuisine from around the world. Through Galleoneers, your child gets to learn about geography and explore new cultures with arts & crafts, fun and educational activities related to the month’s cuisine.
This month was the Japan Eats: Unique Treats from the Land of the Rising Sun. We were delighted that it was a Japanese recipe. We have just been to Japan over the summer holiday, so this was a great opportunity to recap the food that we have eaten and explore their cultures with arts & crafts.
Inside my box, it contains a 24-page fully-illustrated recipe and activity book for three exciting child-friendly dishes – Vegetable Maki and Nigiri Sushi (starters), Chicken Yakisoba (mains) and Red Bean Ice Lollies (dessert). In this recipe and activity book, it shows you step-by-steps classified by age and cooking skill level.
It also comes with bamboo sushi rolling mat, wooden spoon, a packet of sushi nori and a packet of origami papers.
Before we started to make the recipes, we had a list of ingredients to buy! They will email you the list before your recipe box arrives.
This was Mr K preparing his ingredients for his sushi. He did most of the tasks including washing rice, breaking eggs, cutting the vegetables and many more. He enjoyed doing his tasks especially trying to eat some of his ingredients!
One tip I learnt over the years to avoid the rice sticking on the bamboo sushi rolling mat is to wrap the mat with cling film. This makes it easy to roll and clean.
We also made the red bean ice cream using three simple ingredients: sweetened bean paste, condensed milk and double cream. We managed to get the sweetened bean paste from a Chinese supermarket and the rest can be found in any supermarket. Mr K and I enjoyed the time we spent together preparing all the ingredients for our lunch and he had fun with it. We were all amazed that Ms C tried his sushi even though she doesn’t like eggs and seaweed!
Galleoneers is a great way to get children to learn culinary skills to suit their abilities. This monthly subscription kit also allows busy families to spend time together without much hassle. They also host a competition for your little one to enter by post picture(s) on your social media account of their prepared dish featuring the current month’s recipes. Do check it out!
