Recipes for Food that Appear in Makoto Shinkai’s New Film Tenki no Ko:

Makoto Shinkai, whose hit animated feature film Kimi no Na Wa (Your Name) put him on the global map, has a new film that just landed in theaters in Japan. For those outside Japan, you’ll have to wait until early 2020 to see Tenki no Ko (Weathering With You) but for fans looking to get just a little taste of the film, you’re in luck.

In the film, there is a scene where the the heroine, Hina Amano, prepares a series of creative dishes for protagonist Hodaka Morishima. They include potato chip fried rice and instant ramen salad.

The odd yet alluring dishes were created in collaboration with recipe website Kurashiru, who has released the recipes for anyone to try.

Yum? It looks interesting. Any chance to have some Japanese potato chips/crisps in a recipe is a-ok with me.

There’s another recipe in the article, one for salad. Brooklyn Nine Nine fans will get the gist.
