Class report from cooking classes
Welcomed a lovely family from Nevada, USA and their favorite menu choice was Gyoza, of course!
My guests got to learn some basic facts about Japanese Dashi ingredients, then taste them as well.
This class was actually arranged by a charity organization Make A Wish. We are honored to be chosen as a host for one of their experiences in Tokyo. Big brother, big sister and young boy, 3 siblings and their Mum and Dad all joined in preparation of chopping veggies for Gyoza filling, simmering various ingredients for Dashi broth etc. After a few hours of lots of tasks, finally our Japanese style lunch was perfectly done.
Great job and great family team work! I am so grateful to be part of their relaxed and warm family hours in Tokyo. Hope our little boy liked Japanese food and Miso flavor.
Many thanks for coming!
This was a little busier-than-usual class as we prepared 2 kinds of Ramen broth, regular pork soup as well as chicken version, since one of my guests preferred non-pork dishes. For Gyoza, we normally use pork for filling but this can also be replaced with something different, such as chicken, beef, mushroom, root veggies, Tofu etc.
If I would be informed of your dietary preferences well in advance, there are several alternative options so please drop us a message before you arrive! Our home cooking class is small with max 6 people only, so I am very happy to discuss what type of food you are really interested in.
My guests were all Americans on this day, a family visiting from West coast and a group of young officers based in Japan with their visiting friend. So some of them are very familiar about things in Japan, while others are new to this side of the globe. I am sure it was a nice opportunity for my guests to exchange good tips and advices how to enjoy your stay in Tokyo!
Many thanks for coming!
As the season heading into late Autumn in Tokyo, hot and comforting bowl of ramen is an ideal choice for lunch, dinner or even your late night snack. On this cool but sunny day, I welcomed a couple from Montreal, Canada.
My guests have been travelling east and west of Japan for 3 weeks and finally back to Tokyo. Naturally they have tried all kinds of great food but not had a chance to prepare Japanese meals so here we are in my little kitchen.
We prepared Tonkotsu Ramen and Gyoza, plus fresh salad with pickled Kombu. Gyoza is much simpler and easier than most people think but Ramen is a tough choice if you dare cook it from scratch. I buy fresh noodles from local shops but the rest are ALL home made.
After few hours of slicing and simmering and frying, our result was a nice and yummy lunch !
Merci beaucoup for coming to my class!
