Class report from cooking classes
In this class, we had 2 x solo travelers from Europe and both were looking for a place to try Tonkotsu Ramen. So here we are! Our menu also included Gyoza, cabbage & pickled Kombu salad for side dishes.
Cooking Ramen is interesting but eating it is even more of an experience, as you need to slurp the hot noodles and soup together! Making noises are perfectly fine at your Ramen table.
Please start your bowl as soon as it is served, as the chefs are eager to have you taste it while hot and before your noodles get soggy!
Many thanks for coming!
The main dish for this class was my family’s favorite, salmon Teriyaki. Plus we prepared Gyoza with pork & veggies, several side dishes, Miso soup with Dashi broth, etc. All from scratch except Gyoza wrappers, as we can buy them very reasonably at any supermarket here in Tokyo.
I still remember the remark by my guest at our lunch table. ” Wherever you travel, Good food is always simple!”
The father especially liked the combination of our plain rice and grilled salmon with Teriyaki sauce very much. They are such simple dishes but so good.
You may find a bottle of Teriyaki sauce at grocery stores but Japanese-style Teriyaki sauce consists of soy sauce, Mirin, and Sake. Period. All three are our staple seasonings and are stocked in every kitchen.
FYI, Mirin is a fortified type of Sake. Once the liquor with high alcohol is added, fermentation gets stopped and it can maintain a high level of glucose, fructose, etc. In short, it is very sweet!
Many thanks for coming!
It was a chilly late Autumn day in November & my guests’ choice was hot bowls of Ramen and sizzling Gyoza on a pan, yummmm! My little kitchen was pretty full with a group of fun American girls and a couple from Sweden.
After a brief talk about our recipe, then basic seasonings and ingredients, we were all set to start chopping, mixing, simmering and for sure tasting at times. We also prepared chicken version of Ramen for some of my guests so there were many things to prepare, but with 12 good hands we managed to handle every process of cooking.
Gyoza is really recommended for a relaxed gathering of good friends!
We had lots of fun moments and laughs over the table! Many thanks for coming!
