    Miso Soup

    Miso soup is a traditional Japanese soup. It's base is "dashi" (Japanese fish stock) and Miso paste. Common added ingredients are Tofu, Green onion and deep‐fried tofu but differs by personal preference. The type of miso is different from region. In western and Easter Japan white miso is mostly used.

About Host



Hello. I am Mie, the organizer of this cooking class, supported by ANA Strategic Research Institute. I am also assisting our teachers! Let me introduce our teachers Meg & Nana, former cabin attendants of ANA, the Japanese airline.

Meg : I had a managing carrier in the airline but shifted to be a fermentation food specialist. I launched a company, published a book, and I am holding regular radio programs on how the fermented foods affect the human body.

Nana : I have a long term life in the US after leaving ANA, and used to introduce Japanese food cooking and table manners in the local communities. "OMOTENASHI" is one of my lifeworks.

Both knowledgeable, talkative and friendly teachers, we will bring to you a cozy atmosphere and a joyful time to discover real Japanese food culture and cooking techniques from the first step!
