【Starting Time】

We will go for about 40 min walking Nishiki market tour, and then go for 3.5 hour hands-on Japanese home style cooking class (cooking studio is 5 min away from Nishiki market).

Cook with Terumi who started cooking Japanese original ZEN dishes with her grandma, mother, sister, and cousins from her early age. First of all, she will show you how to prepare the perfect sesame tofu which is known as the best hospitality dish for Zen temple. We will explore the implements, and she will explain how each is used for. Next we will prepare Japanese fundamental stock for authentic Japanese food. With the stock, we’ll make savory clear soup, citrus dressing salad, simmered food with the fresh ingredients available on the scheduled date. For your dessert, let’s mold soft dough into seasonable flower which can be eaten with a bowl of matcha.

If you are not vegetarian, let's cook teriyaki chicken, or teriyaki fish. If you are vegetarian, we will replace it with Shiraae dish, vegetables with tofu sauce.
