Long hailed as food that nourishes both the body and soul, “washoku“ (Japanese cuisine) has been an object of intrigue for many visitors from overseas. This workshop zeroes in on “bento” (Japanese lunch boxes) - an indispensable feature of washoku - and is chock-full of fun facts about the different types of bento as well as Japanese bento culture. This experience will see you using all-natural, carefully curated ingredients to whip up some delicious dishes, including miso soup. You host, Yoshiko Tsuchiya, will teach you how the flavors and textures of fresh, seasonal vegetables complement one another to create a refreshing, multi-dimensional taste that delights your taste buds! Also, thanks to Yoshiko’s unrivaled expertise in herbs, you will also gain a holistic understanding of the best ways to harness seasonings to create a bento bursting with “umami”. After the cooking is done, sit back and enjoy eating your delicious handmade bento together with your host and fellow guests. This workshop is a wonderful way to appreciate Japanese food, learn a new skill, and gain a deeper understanding of Japanese people and culture.
