BREAKFAST

This is the most essential Japanese cooking that covers our culinary tradition. In this class, you will learn so much about Japanese basic ingredients, a few kinds of seaweeds, smoked bonito fish, natto, kinds of miso, how to grill fish using your cooking tools. Please do not feel this is an advanced Japanese cooking class, we will move step by step with each student in a small class. And, our classes are based on this principle, an instructor is not only a speaker. We believe that the best way to learn is to ask “why” and ask questions. We use two cameras in class, one is front (facing instructor) and another one is shooting a cutting board and heat. This is not required, but if your tablet, phone, desktop, notebook can change the angle to shoot your hands, that would be fantastic for us to see your hands-on cooking in your kitchen. We hope that this cooking skill becomes a treasure in your life that can make others happy and healthy!FYI: Please do not worry about having small Japanese plates and cups as pictured. We can create Japanese plate using a large dinner plate with one to two green from your plant for color!

  • Washoku breakfast with grilled salmon

JAPANESE DESSERTS

Japanese desserts are something that I missed so much when I was living in the States. Small, delicate soft chewy mochi dough and sweet fillings are typical types. The expiration dates for these desserts are the day you bought them! Because mochi gets hard the next day. Japanese sweets are very different from western desserts. Most of the classy Japanese desserts are fat free and many of them are gluten free. And, we don’t really use an oven, so lots of them are gas top quick recipes except some sweet fillings, such as red or white bean paste. There are many good techniques you can learn from this online class. And it is going to be “WOW desserts” if you serve it after a sushi party!

Class Menu:

  • Seasonal daifuku, mochi stuffed red bean or white paste with seasonal fruits
  • Mitarashi Dango
  • Dorayaki with butter and red beans
