Spring Vegetables Tempura
Sansai has harshness and usually needs some procedure to remove it. But in making tempura, that is not necessary.

Advice from chefThe important point for making delicious sushi rice is to mix it with sushi vinegar quickly in a cutting motion. If you don’t have a wooden sushi bowl, you can use a regular glass or metal bowl. We used takenoko since it is spring, but you could use kanpyo (dried shavings of calabash gourd) instead.
Comments from the ParticpantsI really enjoyed it! I learned a lot about various kinds of Japanese foods and the way to cook them. I had a great lunch after enjoying cooking them myself.
It was my first time to join the cooking course and I really liked it. I was impressed by the way the ingredients were prepared and cooked as well as by the taste.
I had never cooked Japanese dishes before. They were really delicious. It was a fun experience.
