I had a great time teaching at Haven’s Kitchen in NYC this week. Everybody was full of energy and curious to learn about Japanese cooking. The staff at Haven’s Kitchen was really great to work with, and the facility was excellent.
I can’t wait for the next lessons in August. Soon I will post the further information about it, but first, let me share my experience from this time.
The lesson menu was standard Japanese dishes, rolled sushi, tempura and “matcha” dessert. When you talk about Japanese cooking, these are the typical menu that most people would like to start with.
Once I gave them some tips and examples, it was not too difficult, for even beginners, to create a perfect looking rolled sushi. Then I introduced my favorite tempura “Kakiage”. Tempura could be a bit of a challenge, but everyone was listening carefully to the instructions, and did a great job!
Here are some more pictures from the lesson. You could see how fun it was!
This is the owner of Haven’s Kitchen, Alison Cayne. She joined my lesson too! Woo-hoo!
I very much appreciate the great support from Haven’s Kitchen staff, Shell, Sarah, Tarek and of course my assistant Shima.
If you have a moment, please have a look about my next Washoku lesson at Haven’s Kitchen. I will post the detail on this blog soon as well.
