    Green Tea

    The astringent constituent in Japanese tea is a type of polyphenol called catechin. Japan has done a great deal with the humble tea leaf. For example some benefits of the catechin in the tea leaf can lower cholesterol in some cases. Roasted over charcoal at a high temperature and grown under shade for at least 20 days are one of the examples. The most popular Japanese tea might be ryokucha. Depending on the timing of picking the leaves, the grade, the price can be noticeably different.

Hello! My name is Izumi. I live in western in Tokyo, called "Musashino" area, which is full of nature. It is said to be a place where Hayao Miyazaki, a Japanese animated film director, got inspire for famous films, "My Neighbor Totoro".
I teach Japanese dishes in my house near the forest.
I lived in Virginia, the USA for two years when my kids were small. The elementary school where my son went had so many international students from over 70 countries, and I cooked Japanese food at the school festival. The memories I had there through exchanging cultures and cooking were amazing!
Now I have a qualification for the Japan association of cooking for foreigners, and teach them Japanese cuisine, such as sushi. There are sushi classes as well as Plant-Based cooking classes. In Japan, there are so many ingredients ideal for Plant-Based dishes. You will be surprised how delicious Plant-Based dishes could be.
I also teach how to make Musashino Udon noodles. It is a famous dish around my area. The Udon is interestingly foot- neaded. I’m a member of Musashino Handmade Udon Preserve & Popularize Association. I would like to spread Musashino Udon around the world, hoping that more and more people enjoy foot-kneading the noodles and savor the taste of them.

We had a great experience with Izumi-sensei. She was very patient with my teenage son and accommodated our different food preferences with a change in the menu. Both my son and I learnt a lot, not only about cooking but also about Japanese language and culture associated with dining. Arigato gozaimashita!

La comida que preparé con Izumi san estuvo fantástica! Más que todo aprendí a cocinar al estilo Japonés. No tuve ningún problema con el lenguaje porque las instrucciones eran en inglés y ella fue muy amable. Definitivamente vale la pena pagar 5000yenes. Les recomiendo a todos tomar esta clase, es excepcional!
