What to Expect

Let's make Japanese home cooking dishes at your residence in Tokyo.
First let's go together to one of the nearest supermarkets.
Let's buy ingredients for the dishes according to the menu No. A-E (see bellow) you chose.
While doing shopping, I will explain them in details ex. what kind of things they are, what are contained in them or anything you would like to know.
And then start cooking!!!
According to the recipes and instructions in English I hand to you, you can easily make the dishes which are very popular as home cooking.
After that let's make the table and have lunch together which I am sure will be fun and become one of your memorable Japanese experiences.
So why don't you join!

Followings are the examples of the menus.
A. Sushi making class : NIgiri zushi (hand-made sushi), Hoso-maki zushi (rolled sushi)
B. Popular mother's cooking ; Nikujaga( boiled potato & meat in a special broth), Dashimaki tamago( rolled egg with dashi soup), pickles, miso-soup and rice.
C. Popular dishes in general ; Oden( special dish cooked in a broth) or Chicken/ fish Teri-Yaki ( Chicken or fish coated with sauce), pickles, miso soup and rice.
