Seafood ramen class on August 24th

I welcomed a couple from Australia this morning.   They requested ramen as a main dish.

Since I got their booking the day before evening, so I din’t have  enough time to prepare for braised pork for ramen which regularly accompanied with ramen topping.  However, I could prepare for  seafood ramen, the recipe calls salmon and shrimp, that doesn’t need so much time but produce nice testes.

We made pieces of gyoza as well as seafood ramen at the class. Amazingly, the lady made fabulous pieces of gyoza! She is like a professional, eventually i learned how to make gyoza.

Look at this beautiful wrapped gyozas!!

Ephemerally, the gyoza I made was not on this tray. haha. Now  I got how to do this and I can share how to wrap nicely to class participants.

I heard she grown up in Chinese family and her mother is good at making gyoza. however, she said the wrapper in Japan is thinner than Japanese and the cookery is different from her family recipe.

She liked Japanese style gyoza very much and that is a relieve!

Hope you enjoy cooking seafood ramen and gyoza.

Many thanks,

Simmered fish class in Jul

I had a request for simmered fish cooking  from a couple from Marseille, France.

I enjoyed to talk with them about their city, since my husband and  visited years ago and remember how beautiful place!

This is my first taking request for simmered fish as the main dish.  The lady would like to learn something new Japanese taste. I agree I’d love to share something new taste to cooking enthusiast!

I’ve been subscribing Japanese traditional cooking school every week, and I have just learned how to cook simmered fish “nizakana” at the class.

The recipes of the class is always amazing, and no failure. However, I revise the recipe to suit my class for cooking beginners and  change the ingredients what every country can obtain.

Then I made a new recipe for the couple and the ingredient I used was fresh red snappers.

Many thanks!

Private class with an experienced IT cooker /May 2017

Today’s customer had already taken a Japanese home cooking class several years ago and he liked it so much that he wanted to learn more. He was on his business trip to Tokyo so the schedule was a little difficult to sort out but we managed to make it happen! 

His request included mackerel with Miso sauce, eggplant with sweet miso sauce, and we made miso soup, too, along with a few other dishes.

Too much miso? No worries Miso is like cheese for Europeans. There are a great variety of Miso in different regions throughout Japan and even ingredients differ, some uses more rice, others add wheat, or only use salt and soy beans. Each family has its own favorite type of Miso I guess. 

Miso is salty but rich in nutrition and minerals, sich as vitamins, calcium, lactic acid bacteria, oligo saccharide, dietary fiber etc. which help to keep your digestion system in good condition. Some centuries ago, Miso was an important food to carry around for Samurai warriors on expedition, as it keeps for many months without freezing. And most of all, it is yummy!

My guest was such an experienced Japanese culinery cooker. He said at his home in UK, he cooks Oyako-Don, a chicken and egg on rice bowl frequently and  his girlfriend (non-Japanese by the way)  loves it, too.  How nice to hear that!

He works for a gigantic IT company so after all our dishes are completed, it was my turn to ask him a lot of questions about latest happenings in his industry.  

I hope he is now enjoying cooking some mackerel and eggplant with various Miso sauces for his loved ones.  Many thanks for coming!

Ramen class o Sep 12th

My first class at Yotsuya on September is a Ramen Class.

The participants from Belgium and a couple from Australia.

A young Belgium girl traveled all over the world and  we  were really interested in her talk.  Thank you for sharing your interesting trip experiences!

What we do in my class

I usually give lecture  of each recipe what we will cook today at the beginning of the class. I show the ingredients and seasoning at this time and often teste those flavors.

Then participants cut all the ingredients. Using Japanese knife.

Participants mix seasonings or start to cook using recipes by themselves. Of cause I give them many advises and notices. Don’t worry I watch you!  I tell everybody what’s going on “other recipes”

Cook and finish the dishes

Participants set their own table by themselves using ” table setting allocation ”

 

Then we say ” Ita-daki-masu” before eating.

Jul 27th ’16 Halal food cooking

Today’s class was requested by Japanese woman, Ms. M, who wants to give a class to her Egyptian employee, Ms.D.  Very kind boss!

Ms. M and I take time to decide the menu; what we can cook as Halal food for Ms. D, I decide to cook Tempura, since her food restrictions are either  no alcohol  no pork.

    Today’s menu  Jul 27th ’16

Tempura

various kinds of salt (matcha, seakelp, shiso flavor)

Cucumber sesame vinegar dressing

Steamed eggplant with bonito flakes

Bonito sashimi

rice and miso soup

Matcha cake

I’ve  tested several times to make nice Japanese dashi seasoning without sake and mirin.  Sake and mirin are fundamental seasonings for Japanese food. Finally I found out using mixed dried dashi ( mackerel, shiitake, bonito and sea kelp) instead of using simply dried bonito flakes.  The mixture produces  the complexity of Umami flavor to dashi stock.

I also prepared matcha salt, sea kelp powder and salt and shiso flavored salt as accompany for tempura.

I’m so glad to hear that Ms. M gave me email later, Ms. D enjoyed the class very much.   I did enjoy the class very much, too!
