Cooking Class Information

In this cooking class, we can cook Japanese gyoza (Japanese dumplings) together!
Gyoza is one of the most popular Japanese dishes. It’s different from Chinese style dumplings, because they are pan-fried, instead of steamed.
We will start by first preparing the gyoza wrappers from dough.
Then, cut the vegetables and meat and wrap those ingredients with the gyoza wrappers.
Finally we fry them with a big pan!
You can learn how to wrap ingredients with the wrappers and form the gyoza properly.
Gyoza wrappers are crispy while the vegetables and meat inside the Gyoza are juicy.
We will also make a Japanese soul food, rolled egg omelet, by using a rectangular frying pan. Also, Miso soup using Dashi powder which is easy and sustainable to make at home.
