A recipe for 100 meals: created for use in the case of the occurrence of a disaster.
Although 3 weeks have passed after an earthquake, disaster victims are still living in evacuation shelters and eating only food in retort pouches. Each recipe takes into consideration the assumption that stress has been built up among the victims.
From the welcomed familiar local flavors to refreshing sweet desserts, lunch recipes for a hundred meals (about 300 yen each) are packed with consideration for the caring of the victims.
