June is for plums and plums are for umeboshi! Red and packing a sharp salty-sour punch to the taste buds, umeboshi make unambiguous visual and flavor contributions to dishes and sauces. If you’ve ever purchased onigiri (rice balls, actually triangles or rounds) or bento (packaged meals), you’ve likely eaten them. Ume (plums) are at their best in June, so that’s when we’re going to make umeboshi. A product of fermentation, umeboshi require several months to mature. As part of the class, therefore, we will also serve some dishes made with umeboshi Kitchen Nippon began preparing last year. Come out and learn how to make umeboshi and see how they can be used in dishes you can cook at home.

Details will be provided to those who register for the class.

Cancellation Policy: By the way, if you make a reservation, but later find that you cannot attend, please let us know as early as possible.

#Please note that payment of the participation fee will still be expected for a cancellation after the deadline and in the case of a simple failure to attend after making a reservation. Bank transfer details will be provided. A person who reserves a class spot, but then fails to attend, without notifying Kitchen Nippon, may be blocked from further participation. We have decided to implement this rule because we purchase materials for each class and late cancellations and no-shows result in wastage and make it difficult to hold the class fee down.
