Temari Sushi

Thank you for visiting!  In this cooking class, you can learn a unique way of making sushi. Temari Sushi is pretty ball-shaped sushi on which various ingredients such as vegetables, eggs, fish fillets are colorfully put. It's easy to make and looks very gorgeous! If you take it to a party, it will definitely attract people, and it would look great on Instagram, too.

In this lesson, you will learn how to make "sushi rice", which is also used for other kinds of sushi. Once you learn it, you can arrange the toppings as you like. I hope you'll enjoy creating your original Temari Sushi!

Champon Noodles (Nagasaki Ramen)

Thank you for visiting! This class is for people who are interested in local cuisine as well as typical Japanese dishes.    As I live in Nagasaki, I’d like to share Nagasaki's local cooking experience with you.

 

Nagasaki is located at the western tip of Japan. A lot of tourists from all over the world visit Nagasaki and enjoy its historic places, beautiful nature, onsen( hot springs), and local dishes. Surrounded by a bountiful natural environment, it is overflowing with delicious food from both the land and the sea. In its history, Nagasaki was the only open window to the world during “Sakoku”, the period of Japan’s national isolation. Nagasaki acted as a bridge between Japan and other countries. Out of the exchange between different cultures, a unique culture, which was called “Champon Culture”, was born. “Champon” means “mixing various things” and it is reflected in the traditional Nagasaki style of cuisine, too.

 

Champon noodle is one of the most popular regional dishes of Nagasaki and is well known all over Japan. It’s a kind of noodle soup simmered with various ingredients such as pork, seafood, and vegetables. It's similar to Ramen, but Champon is healthier because there are a lot of nutritious ingredients in it. The tip on making it so delicious is its soup. Originally, the soup is made from pork bones, simmered for a long time. In this class, however, I’ll show and tell you how to make it much more quickly and easily.
