The main dish for this early October class was Chicken Teriyaki, side dishes as a small portion of Gyoza with pork & vegetables, as well as spinach with sesame sauce.
It was a lucky class as one of my guests happened to be a cooking teacher at primary school, so everything proceeded very smoothly. Lucky for me too, as I could exchange some interesting recipes with her after the class! My twin daughters are looking forward to trying them very soon during their winter vacation.
People gathered at my kitchen on this day were a lovely family from Denmark and a talented couple from Perth, Australia. So naturally the conversation got started about the Danish royal family and a bride from Australia! What a small world.
Chicken Teriyaki dish was a request and the Dad was particularly patient to learn the recipe. With authentic Mirin and Shoyu simmered together, Teriyaki sauce would naturally turn thick and shiny.
If you like it sweeter, you may add more Mirin or sugar. If you prefer savory, maybe reduce the amount of these sweet seasonings. Home cooking is always simple once you understand the basic formula.
I hope my guest enjoyed their experience at my kitchen as much as I did.
Many thanks for coming!
