Experience Details
For this tofu-making workshop, your teacher will be Mrs. Horikawa, who will welcome you into her family’s traditional Japanese storehouse, which has been in her family for generations. She runs several different workshops here, spreading her knowledge of traditional tofu-making, among other crafts. Horikawa-san will guide you through each step of the tofu-making process, from boiling to blending to filtering, and finally pressing tofu into its final form. During this tofu workshop, no ingredients are wasted, in keeping with typical Japanese culinary practices. Even the leftover soybean product, which is filtered out during the tofu-making process, will be used to make one of the dishes for the meal that follows the workshop. After your tofu-making experience, you’ll be rewarded with a lunch with Mrs. Horikawa, featuring locally-made soybean products. As she speaks English and prepares English hand-outs, joining this workshop is a great way to learn more about Japanese food culture and your wonderful host. Feel free to ask Horikawa-san questions about Japanese cooking, her hometown, and other ideas for where to travel in Yamagata!
