●You can make delicious Teriyaki at home
In this Japanese cooking course, we will be cooking Teriyaki chicken, spinach with sesame seeds sauce, steamed rice, miso soup. After the meal, we will have matcha tea with Japanese sweets. Matcha is traditional Japanese strong tea. We usually wear KIMONO and have formal matcha tea ceremony on TATAMI floor. In this class, we have casual style matcha tea with Yuka's favorite sweets. Yuka has even made easy to follow recipes that use ingredients you can buy back at home!
Teriyaki Chicken- Teriyaki chicken for the main dish. If you like a Teriyaki chicken bowl, you can put the teriyaki chicken onto the hot Japanese rice, then pour sauce on the teriyaki chicken.
Spinach/Seasonal vegetable with sesame-seeds sauce - We make a traditional Japanese salad with sesame-seeds.
We don't use any oil for our salad. It is very light and healthy. And it is one of my favorite Japanese dishes. The vegetables can be changed depends on the season.
Dashi broth - We use konbu kelp and bonito flackes to make typical Japanese soup stock for miso soup.
Miso Soup - First we will make dashi stock by taking cooked bonito
flakes and dried konbu and cooking them both with the miso. In our class, we use a yellow type of miso because this type of miso is the most popular and common in Japanese home cooking. However, most
restaurants use red miso, and if you prefer the red miso soup, we are flexible, just ask during the class. Depending on the season, we will also change the types of vegetables used in the
Steamed rice - We use Jaanese sticky rice (sushi rice/short grain rice) to make steamed rice. We are very particular about how to cook sticky rice.
Instead of using a rice cooker, we will cook rice in an ordinary pot using an easy but efficient method.
Tea ceremony - After the meal, family style Japanese tea ceremony and sweets are waiting for you!! Sweets can be changed depending on the season.
During the class we will use a bamboo spoon to make some traditional Japanese Matcha tea (green tea). The Japanese tea ceremony is a very important part of Japan’s culture and a great way to relax and reflect on your Japanese cooking experience in Tokyo.
