Gluten Free Shojin Ryori Japanese Cooking Class

Provided by:

Event runs from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM
Monthly on the second Sunday, until 6/12/2020


This class will teach you how to enjoy my favourite Japanese foods on a gluten free diet. Through the combination of traditional gluten free dishes Japan has to offer, as well as re-creating wheat based Japanese foods, without the gluten with locally-sourced ingredients. You will be taught by myself, Sumi Saikawa. I am a dietitian and my passion for food and teaching has led me to be running cooking classes for over 25 years in Sydney and back home in Japan. The classes will follow the typical Japanese home cooking style 'Ichi Jyu Sansai'. This follows the foundation of Japanese cuisine since ancient times where meals consist of one type of soup and three other dishes (one main dish and two sides). In fact, ichi means one and ju means soup, while san is three and sai refers to dishes—so ichiju-sansai literally means, "One soup, three dishes." Rice and pickles are always served as well. Over the course of a three-hour, hands-on class we will work together to create each component of our ichiju-sansai. Entry Cost All tickets $90
