I'll teach you how to cook a Vegan Japanese Shoujin course using organic and small-batch, natural farmed ingredients. I'll demonstrate that vegan dishes can be healthy, flavorful and filling. I'll introduce you to my favorite Japanese vegan artisanal ingredients like shouyu and mirin. We'll talk about the traditional Japanese farmers and the importance of protecting their methods. After cooking, we'll eat the course and you can take the printed recipes with you.
