Tempura Class for a family of 6
I appreciated to have a class with delightful family from the US!
A young boy got in touch to book a class early Jul. In my English mistake made him little confuse and eventually I took the family to a supermarket tour before the cooking class.
It was my first time to go for grocery tour with my guests. I showed produce section, fresh seafood section, meat area and whole areas of the typical Japanese grocery store.
I’m glad they liked to find the U.S products, such as Campbell’s canned soup, snacks and beers made in the US. They bought Japanese beer and sake and headed for my place.
On the day of Aug 3rd was very hot and humid, ordinal Japanese summer day. The family looked little tired because of the jet lug and the weather difference.
Before we cook, I gave them Japanese names, Masa-san(father) Kaori(mother) Kyoko ( biggest sister) Ichiro ( biggest brother) Jiro (second brother) Sabro ( third broher) , and we call each other those Japanease name during the class. We enjoyed them very much.
They did cutting and mise en place very well, very smoth. They have a great team work! However, gradually, some of the members get tired and couldn’t work very well.
It happens in my class sometime, don’t worry! Please sit back and relax as you come back your home. I prepare nice Japanese food for you so just enjoy Japanese home cooking.
Menu for Aug 3rd
Tempura ( horse mackerel and seasonal vegetables)
grated daikon and ginger
Cucumber with sesame dressing
Egg plant with sweet miso
Rice and Miso soup
Masa-san is very nice father of 4 children and good husband of gentle Kaori-san. I liked to hear their daily life and their annual trip. I really wish my family would be get along even my sons get bigger like this family.
Thank you very much Ichiro, such a great writing to the TripAdvisor. YOUR writing was amazing! Very intelligence expression for the class. Good luck to your new life in NYC!
