Join this Ginger Pork Japanese Home Cooking Class in Fukuoka and learn to make a delicious pork dish, miso soup, tempura, and a green veggie dish. Altogether, this Japanese meal layout is called “ichijiu-sansai,” meaning “one soup, three dishes.” Ichijiu-sansai is a part of the balanced Japanese diet. Taking place in a Fukuoka home, you’ll get to experience the Japanese lifestyle, making yourself at home in our kitchen.
“Umami” is one of those flavors that is uniquely Japanese. During this home cooking class in Fukuoka, you will learn how to draw out the natural “umami” flavor from ingredients, starting with making miso soup. Made with dashi (a traditional Japanese soup base), miso soup is a warm and soothing dish with that signature “umami” taste.
The highlight of this cooking class is the “butaniku no shogayaki,” Japanese ginger pork, which is a popular dish among Japanese men! Made with pork and ginger, the dish is perfect to replenish nutrients during the hot summer. For a balanced meal, we will also make a style of vegetable tempura known as “kakiage,” which is a simple dish to whip up at home; and a green vegetable sesame dish. You’ll also taste the local Hakata specialty, “karashi mentaiko,” which is especially delicious when paired with hot rice!
