●You can make delicious Teriyaki at home
In this Japanese cooking course, we will be cooking Teriyaki chicken, Yakisoba, boiled rice, miso soup as well as the popular Strawberry-Daifuku. After dessert there will be a traditional tea ceremony. Yuka has even made easy to follow recipes that use ingredients you can buy back at home!
Teriyaki Chicken- First we will cook Teriyaki chicken for the main dish, then put the teriyaki chicken onto the hot Japanese rice we have prepared in a bowl. Then pour sauce on the teriyaki chicken and rice to make “Teriyaki-don”.
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.
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
Boiled rice - We are very particular about how to cook sticky rice.
Strawberry-Daifuku -We wrap the beans paste and strawberries with Mochi to make Daifuku. We will use other fruits for to make our Japanese dessert depending on the season.
Instead of using a rice cooker, we will cook rice in an ordinary pot using an easy but efficient method.
We make soup stock (dashi) from konbu kelp and bonito flakes.
Tea ceremony - After the meal, we will eat Strawberry
Daifuku, then everyone can enjoy the long anticipated traditional Japanese tea ceremony!
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.
