Experience Details
The Japanese New Year is a special time of year for families to gather together. And, like other holidays worldwide, food plays a huge role in the celebration. On New Year’s Eve, families enjoy toshikoshi soba (year-end noodles) and then on New Year’s Day they celebrate with osechi ryori (Japanese New Year cuisine). At its most elaborate, osechi ryori consists of several symbolic dishes all arranged beautifully in multi-tiered lacquered boxes called jubako. Each osechi ryori dish has a special meaning. For example, kurikinton (a mash of candied chestnuts and sweet potatoes) translates to “chestnut gold mash” and is symbolic of prosperity. And eating kuromame (sweet black soybeans) on New Year’s Day supposedly brings good health in the new year. Including kurikinton and kuromame, you’ll make six types of osechi ryori dishes in total and learn the significance of each. In addition, you will also make zouni (also known as “ozouni”), a traditional Japanese New Year soup containing mochi rice cakes, which is supposedly the most auspicious dish for the new year. Each family has a slightly different way of making zouni, depending on their family recipe or the region of Japan where they live. Learn about family traditions during the Japanese New Year, including the food culture during the holidays, during this Osechi Ryori Cooking Class in Ninomiya!
