What kind of image do you have of “Washoku(Japanese cuisine)”?
Washoku became the center of attention when it was registered as an Intangible Cultural Heritage by UNESCO (The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) in 2013.
But it is neither expensive or prestigious. Washoku is the traditional food culture born from Japanese people who respects the nature as well as the four seasons. The root of washoku is home-cooked food made with seasonal ingredients and the cooking method which brings out the best in these ingredients.
There is a place where you can experience the original and homely washoku in the quiet residential area near Shimogamo Jinja (shrine). Haru Cooking Class is held in the owner’s house where you can learn how to make washoku. When you open the door, the daughter of the owner cheerfully welcomes you. It is warm, and makes you feel like you are just visiting a house of a friend or a family.
The owner wishes to hand down the Japanese culture through cooking. He has a wide knowledge of not only cooking but also the culture, and the class is fun and easy to understand.
The home-cooked washoku at a warm Japanese home tastes spectacular. It will be something you cannot taste at a restaurant, and will never forget!
Recommendation Points・You can learn the essence of the taste of washoku
・You can learn not only cooking, but the Japanese culture and the background
・You can experience the atmosphere of the Japanese home
Dashi is the soul of washoku, and he tells you all about it with passion.
Compare them with the ingredients used in each country the guests are from, and taste different miso pastes in a warm atmosphere.
The whole room is filled with the aroma of dashi and a smile is on everyone’s face.
Blend miso into soup, cut the vegetables, stir the ingredients…the owner shows you how, so you don’t have to worry even if cooking is not your thing.
Vegetarians, do not fret; there is of course a vegetarian menu available.
The guests met each other for the first time today, but certain team work was born through cooking.
