Japanese Art of Home Cooking
Lively events based around teaching and tasting Japanese food.
It is my passion. I learned about cooking from my mother in Japan, Kazuko Nagashima. She implanted in me love for Japanese macrobiotic home cooking, handmade utensils, and beauty of each season. While studying at Joshibi Art Academy in Tokyo, I brought for my friends handmade wagashi, pickles, etc. They became so popular, that we decided to meet once a week to make them together, learning from one another. Soon my tiny Tokyo kitchen was full of laughter. This is what I wish to bring back to life here, in my Potsdam home and studio; the joy of cooking, when all our senses are playing a part.To wisely live your life.
If you are interested in my classes of Japanese Art of Home Cooking there are few possibilities to choose from:
1. Regular cooking course for 55€ per person from 18:00 till 20:30. We enjoy tasting what we have just cooked.
We will learn about simple ways of home-style macrobiotic cooking, balanced diet of natural seasonal ingredients, traditional fermented foods, and healthy sweets. We will also talk about health issues, Japanese traditional kitchen utensils, food presentation, and beautiful handbuilt ceramic dishes.
I can help you to make your very own pottery and take you for a tour around my garden to enjoy culinary and medical plants from Japan.
2. Course for 75€ per person, if you want to learn cooking, stay longer, enjoy the meal, bring your own wine and music if you like. This course is lovely for celebrations or just meeting with friends.
3. Another possibility is dinner for 95€ per person. You book me as your chef and enjoy the evening at Studiogosha with your friends. I cook for you Japanese macrobiotic meal with nice variety of dishes + dessert. Feel free to bring your own wine and music.
