The “Hoto” that Chiaki made for Nadeshiko’s family looked delicious. Even Lord Takeda Shingen appeared!

The local cuisine of Yamanashi is Houtou!
Houtou is a dish of wide noodles made of kneaded wheat flour, simmered with vegetables in a miso-based broth, and has been made at home in Yamanashi Prefecture for a long time.
The key to the taste is the miso-flavored soup and the pumpkin, which is indispensable for Hoto. When the pumpkin melts into the fragrant miso-flavored soup, it becomes mildly sweet and indescribably delicious. This deeply flavored soup is unique to Hoto! It is a true taste of the local area.
The flat and thick noodles are firm and chewy even after being cooked! It is also very satisfying to eat. There are plenty of vegetables such as Chinese cabbage, carrots, leeks, and mushrooms to satisfy your appetite.
Since it is served in an iron pot, it is hot all the way through. By the time you finish eating it, you will be sweating, and it will warm you up to the core even in the cold winter.
Even within Yamanashi Prefecture, the taste of Houtou varies from region to region and from restaurant to restaurant, depending on the flavor of the miso, the way the broth is prepared, and the choice of ingredients.
