We always wear our Aprons.  It’s the Japanese way!  Let’s get to cooking!

First, we learn how to make Japanese Soup Stock (Dashi) to make Miso-Soup. I prefer to mix and match many kinds of miso so we can enjoy different tastes everytime. It’s so much fun to invent your own taste!

You must cut the vegetables very thinly for Nanban-zuke, everyone did good job!!!

Today’s menu is:

– Salmon Nanban-zuke (Salmon marinated in sour sauce) as the main dish

– Deep-Fried Tofu with Japanese Dressing and Miso Eggplant Stir-fry as the 2 side dishes

– Rice and Miso soup

Itadakimasu!

It’s so much fun to talk the people who came from all over the world who  love eating and cooking!  We talked a lot, but especially about the food in Italy and Japan!

Thank you so much for coming!

Japanese cooking class on Oct 12th

Now almost mid in October, the weather in Tokyo get milder.  It takes long time to cool down and less humidity in this year. It became much easier to spend outside.

I had  guests a family of three from U.S and a man from U.K.  We cooked “amakara karaage don” which is sweet soy sauce dressed Japanese fried chicken over rice with hot spring egg.

“Hot spring egg” is half boiled egg. But the different with normal half boiled egg is  coagulated egg York and liquidity egg while. As you know, Japanese hot spring is not a boiling hot, but keeping stable  high temperature. The certain temperature make egg yolk coagulate faster than egg while.  We Japanese eat fresh egg since it is one of the custom beside the sanitation system is reliable.  This hot spring egg goes with rice bowl with chicken/meat and fresh fish sashimi.

 

img_4514                      All the participants get along with others cooperate during cooking time  and that make  great for talking each other at last the eating time.   We work together to complete delicious food for lunch.

 

 

Menus on Oct 12th

Japanese Cooking Class on August 1st Giving you Japanese name!

Hi there,

We had  such a fun class on August 1st with a couple and their friend from LA and a man from UK. Also attending a photographer shooting for Tokyo.com.

The group today was very fun people including the photographer. We had great time to exchange information of activity in Japan.

I got an idea to give Japanese names to the participants in this class, and I’ve been giving the names to my studuends in the class. We call each other in Japanese name only in the class.  I gave their name today  Shigeru, Sachiko, Yuko, akiko ( her original Japanesae name given by shigeru) and Sho.

Japanese name means depend on which Chinese characters kanji  use for. So there name might be same pronunciation but the meaning is little different.   Every attendee have  enjoyed Japanese name  pretty much so far.  I’ d like to keep doing in my class. Thank you for giving me the idea, shigeru!

 

Menu on August 1st

 

Horse Mackerel  Nanban-zuke

Cucumber  Sesame -vinegar dressing

Miso grazed pan fried eggplant

Rice and Miso soup

Matcha cake

Many thanks,

Kisshy
