The schedule is:
10am-11am Lecture ” How to eat healthy”
11am-1:30pm Cooking Class & Tasting
I lectured “How to eat healthy” first time @Deborah’s Palm, everyone was pretty curious about healthy eating, kind of new idea how to eat healthy in this country but not ours. We have naturally some idea how to eat healthy because we grew up with many variety of products from sea, river, mountains, and land. Also we have Buddhism tradition which is the origin of simple diet=Soshoku.

Fresh bamboo shoot is in season now and only available for short time flame, so this is very menu. When bamboo shoot season has over, you can still use boiled bamboo shoot in a package.
I shared my bamboo story when I lived in Okayama prefecture in Japan after I married with my husband. I grew up in Tokyo area and moved to Okayama prefecture after I married, it was big life style change from city to country area. We lived in company’s complex housing, and there was a bamboo forest behind our building. When bamboo season comes, I went to bamboo forest and dug out bamboo shoots. If I dig bamboo shoot in the morning, I can eat raw bamboo shoot during same day. So when my parents visited us in spring time, I dug bamboo shoot in the morning and served it as a bamboo “sashimi” for dinner to my parents. It does impressed them so much because that was first time they ate bamboo shoot “sashimi”.
