Experience Details
Japan has a long history of unique home cooking traditions. Washoku, the term for Japanese traditional recipes and eating habits, has been recognized as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO. In this lesson, you'll learn to make two staples of washoku cuisine: sushi rolls and tamagoyaki (Japanese rolled omelet). You'll then enjoy them with a side dish, matcha green tea and wagashi sweets! Makizushi, the official name for sushi rolls beloved overseas, often features simple ingredients: rice, seaweed, vegetable, egg, or meat fillings. Healthy and delicious, these colorful sushi rolls are loved by adults and children alike. Tamagoyaki is a sweet and savory rolled omelet found in nearly every bento box in the country! After getting to know your instructor and classmates, you'll get an overview of the ingredients and process. Follow along with the instructor's demonstration, and then make your delicious meal. After the lesson, enjoy the fluffy tamagoyaki omelet and the fresh sushi rolls you made with a seasonal side dish, a meal combining some of Japan's quintessential flavors. You’ll also learn to make your own matcha green tea and enjoy it with wagashi sweets. As a souvenir from the class, take home an apron and a set of recipes to make again at home. This lesson will be at your host’s home near Ikebukuro, one of Tokyo’s most pop-culture-loving neighborhoods. Packed with anime-related shops, arcades, and shopping malls, this is the perfect place to explore the city after making and enjoying your washoku meal.
