Cooking Class - Japanese Rice Bowl

11 reviews

Discover new ways to enjoy sushi rice.

Sushi rice isn’t only for nigiri or maki rolls but is a foundation for many meals in Japan. Chef Motoko’s recipes are based around the Japanese philosophy of soshoku, or frugal meal. Traditionally made up of a soup, a side dish and rice, this style of eating has become the norm in most Japanese households due to its health benefits.

Chef Motoko will guide the class in the fundamentals of Japanese cooking. Choose from a rice bowl or a hand roll and learn to delicately season the rice with salmon, vegetables and shiso leaf. Complement the dish with a savory miso soup cooked with Chef Motoko’s homemade miso paste.

Guests are welcome to bring wine and beer to enjoy during the class.
