≪The dishes that go well with SAKE ≫ class

     

In this class, we make dishes that go well with sake. These are very easy to make. You can enjoy sake tasting with my family.

You know that sake has become popular all over the world now. Some delicious sake can be bought overseas nowadays and there are even some people  living in other countries who are trying to make sake.  

But do you know what kind of dishes go along with sake and make sake even more delicious?

Sake is a fermented food , just like wine, cheese and most seasonings in Japan, so if you drink it with dishes that use fermented foods, the synergistic effect of umami will make the sake even more delicious. I would like to introduce you to dishes that are easy to make using fermented foods that are delicious and are good for your health.

Since our classes will be online for a while, if it is hard to get sake, I would like to show what other alcohol goes well with our dishes.

Of course, when you come to Japan, please try a combination with the sake recommended by my family.

I would like you to have a blissful time and make sure this will be an unforgettable memory for you that you will always cherish for the rest your life.

Now, let's make dishes that go well sake and let's toast together!!

≪Basics of Japanese cuisine and Takikomi Gohan !!≫ class

In this class, I would like to make the Japanese basic soup stock. It is used for delicious cooked rice, miso soup and other small dishes. Takikomi Gohan is steamed rice made from several kinds of ingredients such as seasonal vegetables, mushrooms, meat, and fish. It is cooked sweet and salty using fermented seasoning such as soy sauce, miso, etc. Some people living abroad often say that Japanese cooked rice has no taste, but there is a delicious rice dish with such wonderful aroma in Japan! Moreover, it is very easy to make. Even those who are new to cooking can easily make this delicious rice dish that will make you feel at home. This is the best menu that eliminates the malnutrition to have after eating some small dishes which go well with good Japanese sake.

Let’s enjoy making a well-balanced and healthy Japanese cuisine!

Tai-somen; Sea Bream Thin Noodles class !!

This dish is a special local cuisine served at celebrations in the Seto Inland Sea coastal area of Japan.  In Hiroshima, where my parents are, from ancient times, it was often used at weddings and events that match the growth of children.  There is also “Tai Somen” which means Seabream noodles description in a book from the Edo period. The recipe of sea bream thin noodles has its own way to cook depending on the area, and family.  This is my mother’s recipe. She used to serve a large simmered sea bream with Somen noodles on a platter at the end of the meal when people visited us. When they saw it, they were amazed. After that, the hostess served the dish on each person’s plate with the broth.  I want to teach you this recipe for two reasons:    It’s a traditional Japanese dish for parties, and it’s easy to make. ②   If you learn how to make this simmered sea bream, you can use the same recipe to simmer other fish. If it’s difficult to find a sea bream, choose a delicious white fish fillet from your country that you can remove the bones easily. Why don’t you make a gorgeous and delicious sea bream Somen with me?

Teachers profile
Hello! My name is Kazue. Now I live in Chiba prefecture. My house is near Tokyo Disneyland, and has good access to Narita and Haneda airports. I have always loved cooking. My mother was very good at cooking and hospitality. As I helped my mother, I naturally fell in love with cooking. I feel that great cooking can put a smile on anyone’s face. After I got married, my family lived in Spain for four years and then in Thailand for two years for my husband’s work. During my last 3 years in Spain, my family lived in a city where there were no other Japanese families. I met an elderly woman, who lived next door, and she was very kind to us. She told me that she would be my mother in Spain!  And then She taught me how to make Spanish home cooked food and took us to the town’s events and festivals with her family. I am very grateful to her and my neighbors. I still haven’t forgotten that memory. So I want to do the same for people from all over the world as she did for us. So after I returned to Japan, I studied about Japanese food and got qualifications. Through my life abroad, I learned two things! One is that the best hostess can help their guests relax. The other is that I feel that Japanese cuisine is full of Umami and the spirit of hospitality. I would like you to come into my class and experience these two things and help you create unforgettable memories. Let’s discover Japanese culture through Japanese food and enjoy a special experience! Now I can use “Zoom” to teach cooking. Let’s connect our kitchens and cook together! Of course, please come to my house once COVID 19 has calmed down. I want to cook small dishes which go well with Sake, or an anime character lunch box together with you!! I am looking forward to seeing you!! <Qualification> WashoCook certified instructor, Fermented food sommelier
