Oyaki/おやき

Japanese Food

Just wanted to show some photos of store-bought oyaki given to my parents as an oseibo (year-end gift). Oyaki is another local dish of Nagano (aka Shinshu).
両親がお歳暮としてもらった市販のおやきの写真をちょっと載せます。おやきも長野(信州)の郷土料理です。

Four different types, cabbage, kiriboshi (cut and dried daikon), nozawana, and Chinese cabbage.
四種類(キャベツ、きりぼし、野沢菜、はくさい(白菜))です。

Oyaki with nozawana filling:

Oyaki with Chinese cabbage (and other vegetables):

Not bad, but I really want to have the ones made in an irori (open fireplace) in the old-fashioned way, like the ones shown in the YouTube video.
悪くはないですが、このYouTubeのビデオのように囲炉裏で昔風に作ったおやきを食べたいです。
