Japanese food is known for being light, fresh and seriously tasty. Give them the opportunity to join in on a social, yet intimate hands-on class experience located right outside Melbourne city, in Richmond. With a trained chef giving the instructions, they will put together 4 delectable dishes in 3 hours full of the freshest seasonal produce that reflect the simplicity and beauty of the Japanese way.

Being an interactive experience, they will learn all the best tricks of essential Japanese flavours through preparing and cooking the food themselves. All equipment is provided, along with the beautiful fresh ingredients, and refreshments throughout.

Depending on whether they choose to use their experience from January to June, or July to December will depend on what they cook! With the first half of the year focussing on preparing miso soup; sushi with pickles, fish and other meats; chicken, beef or seafood Japanese teriyaki; and a daikon salad with a sesame dressing, the second half of the year will see them making Goya pork and ginger dumplings; daikon salad with a sesame dressing; Okonomiyaki Japanese pancakes; and ramen noodles with pork and broth.

In addition to these mouth-watering recipes, the class will also have the opportunity to taste some favourite Japanese drinks including sweet plum wine, Japanese beer, and of course, green tea. After all the preparing and cooking excitement is over, the class will enjoy the fruits of their labour together; tasting each dish and having the chance to make new friends.

This is a great gift for all ages over 16 _ both to learn new skills and indulge that curiosity of Japanese food and culture to take home to the kitchen! Everything But Flowers experience vouchers are redeemable directly with the experience provider with full details provided upon purchase. Recipients have 3 years to use the full value of the voucher.
