The dishes will include maguro tataki (flash seared tuna), gomadofu (sesame "tofu"), yuanyaki (grilled fish & yuan marinade), awase misoshiru (mixed miso soup) and steamed rice. Fashioning the ichimonji, first serving of rice, in the Urasenke tradition will also be demonstrated. Ichiban dashi (soup stock) will also be introduced. Easy to follow recipes will be provided. Fee $30/25 members.
