What you'll do
Let’s cook healthy Umami dishes with Terumi who started cooking with her grandma, mother, sister, and cousins from her early age. First of all, she will show you how to prepare the perfect sesame tofu which is known as the best hospitality dish for Zen temple. We will explore the implements, and she will explain how each is used for. Next we will prepare Japanese fundamental stock for authentic Japanese food. With the stock, we’ll make savory clear soup, citrus dressing salad, simmered food with the fresh ingredients available on the scheduled date. For your dessert, let’s mold soft dough into seasonable flower which can be eaten with a bowl of matcha. If you are not vegetarian, let's cook teriyaki chicken, or teriyaki fish. If you are vegetarian, we will replace it with Shiraae dish, vegetables with tofu sauce.
