We are very lucky where we are living, we have really nice neighbours in our simpang! Opposite us lives a NZ-Japanese couple, and Misuzu have several times invited us around for home made sushi and other Japanese goodies. A while ago we jokingly suggested she should do a cooking class, and we could all take part and learn how to cook Japanese food.
Today we did!
We had a lovely morning together, a few amahs, Nicole, one of her friends, her daughter Katie, Misuzu and myself. Misuzu had prepared everything for us, she had printed out the recipes with all the important 'key points' and hints and even prepared a little "starter kit" for us to take home after class. It was fab!
We learned how to make gyozas, cocoons, edamame, karashi (lotus root) and sushi, of course. There was so much food when we were done so Nathan and the kids came and helped out at lunch time! (Misuzu had bought 'training chop sticks' for the kids in Japan, so cute!)
Next week we'll do Swedish Meatball class at my house! Ha ha!
