Japanese Cooking Class has been Held Again! — Simmered Mackerel with Miso, Squid Stir-fried
Japanese cooking class “att.Kithchen in Ningyoucho” has been held in Ito Ryokan on November 20.
The menu this time is: simmered mackerel with miso, squid stir-fried and boiled of Japanese mustard spinach (hand-made Yuzu-vinegar).
The participants from United States, France and Germany have been taught how to make real Japanese cuisine from professional chef Ms Chie.
One of the ingredients is Squid. It was the first time for all the participants to touch the raw squid. They were afraid but made the challenge.
When they cut the eye of the squid with inattention, some liquid like black ink popped out. Everybody was laughing at it.
The participants from United States and Germany were repeat participants, and they still would like to join the cooking class next time because it was so happy.
In this cooking class, you can learn the essentials and tips from professional chef. And you can also redo the dishes easily by yourself at home after learning from the class.

Advice from chefThe importance of the dish “simmered mackerel with miso” is to remove the smell from the mackerel. Before cooking the mackerel, pour hot water on it, and put in ginger and Japanese leek after turning on the heat.
Comments from the ParticpantsI had a really good time cooking. We have been taught tasty traditional Japanese recipes using seasonal and fresh ingredients. Chie san, the cook, was really nice and patient. She taught us the recipes step by step answering our numerous questions. I feel it will be easy to redo the recipes at home.
The kitchen where we cooked was big enough for all of us to feet. We were all able to participate in the preparation of the dishes. I am looking forward to joining the next Japanese cooking lesson!
