(1) Japanese Rice:
Japanese rice is famous for its quality and flavor. Once you learn how to cook rice, it is not that difficult. Most Japanese families use automatic rice cookers, however you can use a normal pot to cook rice.
(2) Miso Soup:
The miso soup is food necessary for Japanese life. The first step is to make the dashi stock. Some vegetables will be cooked in this soup and miso paste will be added later. If you have good dashi, you will enjoy its favor and only need a small amount of miso.
(3) Teriyaki Chicken:
Teriyaki Chicken is a very popular dish of chicken cooked in soy sauce. We will make the Teriyaki sauce first. Once you know how to make this, you can apply this to other teriyaki dish such as fish. The chicken will be cooked first with strong heat, then coated with teriyaki sauce.
(4) Dashimaki Tamago (A Japanese style omelet):
Dashimaki Tamago is a traditional Japanese style omelet with “Dashi”. Dashi is an essential item for Japanese cuisine. We really want you to experience authentic dashi in this cooking class. If you want to experience good Japanese dining at a Japanese restaurant in your hometown, you should ask if they use real dashi or not.
(5) Special dish by each family:
Our instructor will offer a special dish for you. The dish differs depending on instructors.
(6) Green tea or Matcha (Japanese green powdered tea), (7) Japanese sweets:
The taste of green tea is very different when you use good tea leaf and if you brew it correctly. We want you to know how to brew it authentically today. Alongside with Sen-cha, we have Ban-cha, Hoji-cha, Genmai-cha and Kona-cha. We use those on separate occasions.
Japanese sweets are usually served at tea time. A well brewed green tea should be sweet with a little bitterness and it must be refreshing.
