How to make Japanese Condiments and Flavorings

Photo by Sean Shadbolt

Kazuyo and Eri will show us how to prepare our own Japanese condiments.
Barely known outside Japan, these delicious and nutritious condiments are the base of traditional meals, and can be stored for quite a long time in the kitchen cupboard without spoiling.
The class will introduce 4 kinds of condiments for rice and other dishes: Furikake, Tsukudani, Ochazuke-flavorings, and Neri-Miso (Okazu-Miso), miso balls that can be stored and used to make instant miso soup. These condiments will also add a touch of colour and sophistication to many dishes, and are perfect for entertaining.
All ingredients are provided and students will take home 100g each of the condiments and Miso-balls. Lunch is also included.
