Cooking Class Menu

The class will follow the typical Japanese home cooking style 'Ichi Jyu Sansai'.
In fact, 'Ichi' means one and 'Jyu' means soup, while 'san' is three and 'sai' refers to dishes - so ichiju-sansai literally means, 'one soup, three dishes'. Rice is always served as well.
The menus I would like to introduced to you are:
- Ginger rice
- Potato/Lotus roots patty on Nori seaweed with homemade teriyaki sauce
- Eggplant with miso glaze sauce
- English spinach and Shitake mushrooms salads
- Vegetables miso soup
- Quick pickles

They are so nutritious and delicious.

  • 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.

  • Miso Soup

    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.
