King of condiments? Well, press and blog ravings seem to be saying just that. But even if you leave out the hyperbole, you can still gather from all that’s written about it that yuzukoshō is very versatile and takes many even non-Japanese dishes to a new dimension. Want to know more about yuzukoshō? Well come to our class! We’ll show you how to make your own and even give you some tips on how to use it. Making yuzukoshō involves grinding up a bunch of chili peppers, so you should bring a mask like the ones Japanese wear as a barrier to winter nasties and pollen. (We know some of you wouldn’t want to be caught dead wearing one of those, but you’ll be in a small group, indoors, and we won’t tell!)
Location: Yanaka (Taito-ku) at a location convenient to both the Chiyoda Subway Line (6 minutes from Sendagi Station) and the JR Yamanote Line (8 minutes from Nippori Station).
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.
This class will be taught by Chef Machiko Tateno.
