The Japanese cooking show has been crowned the longest running show in the world

A Japanese cooking program, whose first episode was broadcast 65 years ago, has entered the Guinness Book of World Records as the longest cooking program, announced the Japanese Broadcasting Corporation (NHK).

Since its launch in 1957, Kyo no Ryori, or “Today’s Cooking,” has presented nearly 46,600 recipes that reflect the spirit of the times, from economic recession to women’s liberation.

“I think ‘What should I cook for dinner tonight’ is the constant question that everyone asks,” Mayumi Yanai, the show’s senior producer, told reporters on Friday during a press conference in Tokyo. This cooking show seeks to “honestly answer that question and resonate with our family audience,” she continued.

Its first episode in 1957 was devoted to a Western-style curry cooked with oysters, when one in four Japanese people were malnourished.

During the global oil crisis of the 1970s, the show was adapted and offered inexpensive recipes to financially struggling audiences.

In the 1980s, as women began entering the workforce, the show focused on meals that could be prepared quickly. She also began serving “men’s dishes” around this time.
