    Tempura (天ぷら) is a classical Portuguese dish brought to and popularized by Japan, consisting of seafood or vegetables that have been battered and deep fried. Tempura is a typical home-style cooking in Japan. It is often referred to as a representative dish to Japan. Although there are various theories, it is said that Tokugawa Ieyasu, the general of the Edo period, liked tempura so much that he allegedly died from eating too much.

Cooking Class Information

I try to cook simple, delicious and healthy food.
We basically use olive oil for Japanese food, use pesticide-free or reduced-pesticide vegetables as much as possible.
And make the most of the original taste of ingredients instead of artificial seasonings. Instead of using white sugar, sweeten with natural sugar, mirin or sake.
In spring you may be able to make wild vegetable tempura.
Family members all like sashimi, so they often eat it. It is delicious when eaten with Japanese herbs and spices such as perilla and wasabi.
