In today's class we did a supermarket tour and I explained the ingredients we will use in the class as well as answer any questions on what to buy. I didn't realize how shopping in the Japanese supermarket can be so challenging to the non-Japanese residents. Most things are only written in Japanese! In the near future I would like to make a webpage dedicated to how to shop in the Japanese Supermarket.
In the class I explained how to wash and cook rice properly as well as how to make the dash (soup stock) and couple of dishes using the dashi.
I'm Miyuki and I teach Japanese Home cooking at my home in Tokyo.
