Nikujaga class

Today’s students are lovely ladies from Hong Kong and Australia.

Main menu was Nikujaga!

Very trafitional, one of my favorite main dishes “Nikujaga” is like Japanese stew with Beef and Potatoes. Normally I make this the day before because it’s better taste if it keep in the soup longer.

“Sesame spinach salad”Here is she is making Japanese sesame sauce and we put boiled spinach in it. Taste so good !

Here is also one of side dishes called AGEDASHI-Tofu (Fried Tofu with Japanese sauce) and I recommend to eat with graded daikon (Japanese radish).

We exchanged the culture different between Japan,Hong Kong and Australia. It’s always fun and can’t stop talking!

Thank you so much for coming today!

Pork Tonkotsu Ramen with a Canadian couple

The main dish was pork “Ton-kotsu” Ramen and Gyoza with pork & vegetables. It is amazaing how Ramen is so popular recently!

One of my guest has a Chinese family and he told me he used to wrap Gyoza once every week to help his busy Mum. He also worked for a restaurant in Vancouver for almost 10 years. No wonder he makes Gyoza and fried vegetables so effortlessly!

It was their first time to grate smoked Bonito fish but they both liked the flavor.  We made Dashi soup stock with Bonito and added into pork broth.

Of course everything turned out very yummy.

I hope my guests enjoyed our Japanese style dumplings and soup noodles.

I also enjoyed seeing him frying, Wow!

Many thanks for coming!
