I'm not a professional chef, so the menu is a simple home-made lunch. I work as a professional English tour guide and would like to share a meal with you that also has a cultural and historical introduction to Japan and its culture.
I really enjoy talking to people, so I want us to discuss or exchange opinions about our home countries.
My activity places more emphasis on discussion and explaining the cultural elements about Japan.
If you're interested a home-made lunch with a friendly atmosphere and some information about Japan, then this activity is for you!
What you can expect :
- arrival to my home
- introductions so we can get to know each other. This is an important element of Japanese hospitality. I will also share some information with you about the religions in Japan.
- cooking process with an explanation of the 'umami' taste and the food culture in Japan.
We will prepare the ingredients (cutting, and wrapping) and then enjoy lunch together.
The menu :
※Chirashi zushi (Vinegared rice with thin strips of egg, vegetables and crab meat arranged on top)
※Gyoza (Fried dumplings with vegetable and meat ingredients in a flour wrapper)
※Tempura (deep fried vegetables)
