Clear glasses with a pale green panna cotta dessert, are topped with strawberries and white chocolate shavings.

Matcha is a Japanese green tea powder made from tea leaves that are dried then ground. It is high in antioxidants and has a vibrant green colour. With a "grassy" taste, it is not to everyone's liking. If you enjoy the taste of matcha, this velvety panna cotta is simple to make, and you can glam it up with decoration as you wish.

We can't make it to the Olympics this year, but as we watch on from our TVs, tablets and smartphones, even in lockdown, there is a way to bring a little taste of authentic Japanese culture into our homes. Why not try a baking project like this light, fluffy and colourful Japanese green tea cake?

A dish of sukiyaki simmers and cooks. In the pot are strips of beef, shitake mushrooms, greens, enoki mushrooms, tofu and broth.

In celebration of the Olympic Games in Tokyo, we are bringing a little Japan to you. Whilst you may immediately think of foods like sushi, and fish-based meals. This is something different. Sukiyaki originated after Japan opened its ports to trade with foreign merchants in the 1860s. These foreigners introduced new cooking styles and the use of meat in more mainstream foods. This dish simmers the meat and vegetables in a light sauce/ soup.
