The main dish request for this class was “something seafood, but not Sushi” as the couple has already learned how to make Sushi before. So we did our popular seafood main dish Nanban style marinade of fried salmon & swordfish.
For side dish choices, my guest picked a menu using Kaki, the seasonal fruit of autumn and one of few indigenous kinds for land of Japan. Plus sweet & savory Miso sauce with grilled eggplant.
My guest couple told me they were living in a motor house and I was as curious as always, so they showed me some photos, and it was way beyond my imagination, truly gigantic! Their kitchen in the motor house is much bigger than mine in Tokyo apartment, with every nice equipment.
I am sure they can cook anything at their beautiful kitchen. Hope they have tried out our Japanese home cooking recipe back home.
Many thanks for coming!
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.
