Let's Cook Yuba and Other Tofu Dishes! Basic Japanese Food

In this workshop, you will learn how to make Japanese dishes that use soy-based products like soy milk or tofu, as well as how to make dashi. Dashi is a basic soup stock that is a key element in authentic Japanese cuisine. Whether or not you can bring out the umami flavor in many dishes rests on the dashi.

You and Terumi will prepare creamy tofu, along with the accompanying condiments, as well as various other dishes that use tofu. These include yuba (soy milk skin), stewed vegetables, and steamed tofu with vegetables (made with Koya Tofu). Then, you will try the food you've made together. After the meal, you can enjoy wagashi (Japanese sweets) and houjicha (roasted green tea).
