It is really fun to see all vegetables are growing well and I just remember that my mom told me “I like vegetables because they are not complain”
I taught The Art of Sushi class for vegetarian today. Since the customer is vegetarian, I made special sushi menu for vegetarian.
– Miso soup with kelp soup stock, turnip, green onion
– Inari sushi with dried mushroom, carrot and sesame
– Hand wrap sushi with cucumber, avocado and pickled plum paste, fermented soy bean
– Green vegetable with sesame sauce
I taught The Art of Sushi Class as a Birthday Celebration gift for her grandson. For my surprising, the birthday boy does not eat vegetables & fruits!
It was a challenge class for me since my main goal is healthy cooking from vegetable garden to kitchen. I discuss with his mother and decided to teach regular sushi class with miso soup & green vegetable dish with sesame. He cooked very well all dishes and he enjoyed all dishes too! Actually that was my hope if he could taste it little bit green vegetable dish, I am so glad that even he liked it. Also he tasted cucumber & miso soup too.

I taught Hot soba noodle class for Pescetarian. I harvested Trefoil, green onion, daikon radish with leave, green pea from garden and brought chayote squash for tempura which I harvested last summer. I brought “Wasabi salt” for tempura and customers liked it. Customer’s fiance is a chef/Californian & Mediterranean cuisine so both cooked so well.

I taught hot soba noodle soup class on Saturday, I found this is a surprise Christmas gift to customer’s wife. She was really surprised and enjoyed cooking class. Original recipe at Cozymeal was cold soba noodle with Tempura for Summer season. So I changed menu to Winter version which is hot soba noodle soup.
I traveled to Germany during Thanks Giving Holidays and visited Munich, Whittenberg, Dresden.

I and my son visited Schloss Wackerbarth and enjoyed Christmas Market.
I taught The Art of Sushi Class tonight. I harvested Turnips, Komatsuna green leaf, Shiso leaf from vegetable garden this morning and used these vegetables in cooking class.
For my surprising, they visited Japan before and they have chopsticks, soy sauce and pickled ginger at home. Also they can speak some Japanese. So they love sushi and would like to know how to make it.
After two weeks absence in Japan, all vegetables in my garden grew so well. I harvested 20 Chayote Squash, 20 Turnips, bowl of Black Soy Bean.
Right after I harvested Black Soy Bean, rinse them and boil them. Taste so good! Yum!
