I'm excited to take my guests to one of “Shibuya style” supermarkets. I show you and explain seasonal produces, Japanese seasonings, and pantry items in Japanese kitchen. From this part of experience, I'd like my guests to discover what Japanese eat everyday, and the fundamental ingredients of Japanese cuisine. And more, I hope that from this experience of visiting a market with me is a chance to see how Japanese food market is presenting products, how Tokyo locals shop, and “food culture” behind the products. After visiting the market, we move to my cooking studio by taking a train two stops from Shibuya or walk depending on weather. Class menu changes slightly with seasonal vegetables, but the menu in this experience is always Japanese home cooking 101. I want my guests to learn where is “umami” comes from and how to create it. And, recipes are very simple to cook and ingredients can be found in your city so that you can recreate the class menu easily for your friends and family. Menu is Karaage, corn rice, miso soup, three other side dishes. My goal for this cooking class is my guests will be able to cook delicious miso soup in their kitchen after my class! Class menu is not created for vegetarian, but can be accommodated as much as I can. BUT, smoked bonito is always used in broth in this class. I also offer “Ramen at Home” and “Vegetarian Ramen and Gyoza” class.
