Pork Ramen & Gyoza class

My guest for this class was a group of Galician and French . It was their annual reunion trip and I was honored to be part of their vacation in .

Our lunch menu:

Pork Ramen with Miso meat sauce, stir fried , soy sauce flavored egg, pork slice as toppings

Pork and vegetable Gyoza

Crushed cucmber

Lots of questions and lots of fun talks! My male guests were very keen to use vegetable knives and I love the way they paused for a photo, Spanish Samurai at my kitchen!?

Ramen soup has 3 components, pork bone soup stock, Japanese stock with smoked bonito, dried sardine and sun-dried Shiitake mushroom, and pork sauce of soysauce & Mirin. We also prepare a variety of topping so it tales a lot of work and preparation to make this bowl of hot noodles.

At the class we also made Japanese style pork dumplings, Gyoza. The recipe is originally from China like Ramen,  but it is now a very common for all Japanese to cook & eat at home. We mainly grill the dumplings, then put the lid and steam to finish up our Gyoza.

I hope my guests enjoyed their time at my kitchen,

Many thanks for coming!
