The Kibo Ktichen: Cooking Class with Elizabeth Andoh
Elizabeth Andoh returns to 18 Reasons to celebrate her forthcoming and very special e-original book: KIBŌ Brimming with Hope: Recipes & Stories from Japan's Tohoku. This is her culinary tribute to the Tohoku region that was devastated by earthquake, tsunami and nuclear accident on March 11, 2011.
The KIBŌ Kitchen is a 3-hour, cooking workshop that introduces us to the local flavors of Japan's northeast, the Tohoku. During the class, Elizabeth will combine and integrate Tohoku specialties with basic washoku principles (Japan's indigenous food culture) and the no-waste approach of kansha (appreciation) to teach participants how to prepare:
Kelp and Dried Shiitaké Stock
Straw-Wrapped, Brine-Simmered Tōfu
Celebration Hot Pot with Straw-Wrapped, Brine-Simmered Tōfu
Rice Taffy Dumplings with Crushed Édamamé
Note: Elizabeth as prepared a vegan menu to accommodate those who have chosen a plant-based diet.
18 Reasons Members: $50
General Public: $60
There are only 12 spaces, so reserve your spot early.
Registrants will receive a KIBŌcard, signed and personalized by Elizabeth during the program. Elizabeth's other cookbooks previously published by Ten Speed Press, Washoku: Recipes from the Japanese Home Kitchen (2005) and Kansha: Celebrating Japan's Vegan and Vegetarian Traditions (2010) will be available for purchase.
Both Elizabeth and her publisher, Ten Speed Press, a Crown imprint of Random House, have pledged a portion of book proceeds to Japan's recovery efforts.
