Learn to cook Japanese meals in our fun cooking workshops

Come discover the Japanese kitchen and diet with award winning cookbook author and owner of Niseko Gourmet, Tess Stomski.

For the 2018/19 season Tess is offering cooking classes at Mick’s Wine Cellars in Hirafu.

“In the kitchen we will cook a Japanese teishoku menu with a mix of traditional and modern recipes, using everyday ingredients.  I’ll talk about what’s necessary to have in your pantry so that on any given weeknight you could pick up a few fresh ingredients and then head home to prepare a simple or impressive Japanese lunch or dinner for family or friends.”

This seasons menu includes:

Brown rice steamed with barley accompanied by moro miso
Potato and bacon miso soup
Tofu, pork and beef hamburg
Simmered burdock, carrot and chilli
Daikon and yuzu pickles
Green leaves, seasonal vegetables, umeboshi dressing

Perfect for an activity outside the snow sports arena!

'If you love to cook and entertain, I'm sure you'll love this menu.'
