Cooking Class Menu

- BBQ on the table
We don't have a yard for barbecue but we have a very innovative table top stove with which friends and family get together to enjoy their favorite grilled ingredients. Please select your choice of main from Wagyu beef, seafood, or seasonal fresh vegetables (for vegetarian).

- Hot cabbage and mackerel salad with homemade "Sansho" (Japanese pepper) spice
One of my favorite dishes, which is easy to prepare, nutritient and cost conscious. You will know how and when to use "Sansho".
*Fresh sansho is only available early summer. After the season, paste/juice from fresh sansho may be used.

- "Takana" rice
"Takana" is pickled green leaf which is originated from Kyushu. When mixed with cocked white rice, this gives a flavour and a beautiful color.

- Rose shaped Wagashi (Japanese confectionary)
Have you ever tasted 和菓子(Wagashi, Japanese sweet)? These are mainly made from beans, rice cake and sugar. No fat. It's not only good for your health but also bring you its story backed by Japanese history.

  • Rice


    Rice is a staple food in Japan. In all most every family, there is a rice cooker. There is variety of Japanese rice brands such as Koshihikari and Hitomebore.

Cooking Class Information

In this cooking class, I'm going to show you variety of Japanese condiments. When we do BBQ at home, we prepare several kinds of "sauces" with seasonal vegetables. You can enjoy you grilled meat / seafood / vegetables with variety of sauces to taste the different harmony.
If you are interested in the Japanese preserved food, the cabbage and mackerel hot salad can be a very good example as a canned mackerel is used for this dish. I'm going to explain how Japanese people prepare for unexpected disaster by keeping canned food in our stock.
The highlight of this course is Wagashi making. We are going to make rose shaped "nerikiri" confectionary. Using the rose shaped wooden mold, we transform the ingredient (nerikiri) to a beautiful rose.
A cup of green tea, red tea or coffee will be served to end your meal.
