Cooking Class Menu

Menu 1:

Gyoza:
Gyoza, delectable Japanese dumplings, feature a delicate balance of minced vegetables such as cabbage, spring onion, and tofu encased in a thin flour skin. My family's unique twist involves incorporating shoyu sauce, imparting a subtle yet tantalizing flavor to these delectable parcels.

Ramen (2 Types: Choose 1):
Ramen, a Japanese noodle soup, is elevated in my kitchen with two distinct styles. The first, a comforting miso-based ramen, showcases a harmonious blend of miso paste, vegetables, and tofu, creating a rich and savory broth. The second, a refreshing shoyu ramen, features a soy sauce-infused broth adorned with vibrant vegetables and tofu, providing a lighter yet equally satisfying alternative.

Menu 2:

Vegan Japanese Vegetable Curry Rice Bowl:
A rich and flavorful Japanese curry featuring a medley of colorful vegetables such as carrots, potatoes, and bell peppers. The curry is seasoned with a blend of aromatic spices and served over a bed of fluffy Japanese rice, creating a comforting and satisfying bowl.

Stir-Fried Tofu:
Stir-fried tofu, a cornerstone of Japanese vegetarian cuisine, is a symphony of textures and tastes. Tofu cubes are skillfully sautéed with an assortment of fresh vegetables, creating a colorful and nutritious medley. The dish is perfected with a savory soy-based glaze, ensuring each bite is a celebration of plant-based goodness.

Miso Soup with Tofu and Wakame:
A classic and heartwarming Japanese staple, our Miso Soup is a comforting blend of traditional flavors. Silken tofu cubes and delicate wakame seaweed gently float in a nourishing broth made from fermented miso paste. The miso imparts a savory depth, while the tofu adds a silky texture and the wakame contributes a touch of oceanic umami. This soul-soothing soup, served with a sprinkling of green onions, offers a harmonious balance of simplicity and complexity, making it a perfect start or accompaniment to your vegetarian Japanese culinary experience.

Hello. My name is Amita. I am
an Indian vegetarian. I have been interested in cooking since I was 15 years old and still cooking almost everyday. I have been living in Japan for the past 25+ years and vegetarian food not very easily available here, I cook a variety of cuisine including Indian , Mexican Japanese etc.. Therefore, for vegetarian/ vegan Japanese cuisine, I think that I can make most menus. I like to touch different cultures, so I'd like to talk with people from various countries. If we can meet, I’d like to enjoy Language Exchange too. My home is in Asakusabashi which is famous as a sightseeing spot. I can also introduce interesting shopping spots and delicious restaurants in Tokyo.
