Japanese Cooking Class

Dear Slow Fooders and Friends,

On Sunday, November 22nd, from 11am to 2pm at the Ranui Community House 474 Swanson Road, we are very lucky to have Michiko to demonstrate for us, the art of Japanese Cooking.
The cost of the workshop will be $35 for Slow Food Members and $45 for non members.

Michiko will be teaching us to create:

1. Tofu hamburger steak with daikon & lemon sauce
2. Simmered Tofu & Beef - Sukiyaki style
3. Okara nuggets
4. Marinated Tofu & silverbeet
5. Seaweed & lettuce salad
6. Miso soup
7. Rice balls

For those of you who have heard of the major health advantages of Japanese food and the benefits of reducing your intake of red meat in favour of plant proteins (e.g. the products of the soya bean) this workshop will be really valuable.
The workshop is generously sponsored by The Organic Soy Company, of Henderson in the form of organic tofu, okara and TONZU vegetarian sausages and recipes will be available for all dishes.

Please register with Claire at or Karen at
Places are limited due to space constraints, so please register promptly.

Best wishes Karen and Claire.
