Japanese Cooking Class -01
Izakaya; often described to the unfamiliar as ‘Japanese tapas’, actually refers to Japanese drinking establishments that offer casual plates of extremely tasty Japanese food, designed to accompany one’s beverage of choice. Sounds perfect you say? Yes! – it really is. This Japanese cooking class unravels some of those morsels of joy.
Izakaya style Japanese, the perfect introduction to the often intimidating and highly esteemed ‘whole other thing’ that is the art of Japanese cookery; or simply an important addition to your already established Japanese repertoire.
Here’s what’s cooking…
agedashi tofu [crispy silken tofu, dashi broth]
ocean trout tataki, sesame crust, pickled Fuji apple
creamy smashed potato and pickled vegetable
karaage (twice fried ginger free range chicken)
soy butter baked enoki mushrooms
gyoza, free-range pork belly & shiitake
charred sesame and garlic edamame pods
matcha green tea ice-cream (artisan product made off site)
"We had such a great time in the Japanese Izakaya class last night. On top of the expert instruction and the fun process of preparing our meal for the night, we really enjoyed learning about the cuisine, being provided with cooking tips and advice on sustainable eating, as well as meeting fellow students in a friendly environment. Thank you to Reanne, Jake and team for sharing their passion! Looking forward to the next one."Chris Le
