Plant-Based Japanese Dinner
March, 25, 4:00-7:00pm
Sponsored by BARN (Bainbridge Artesian Resource Network)
Inspired by "shojin ryori," a traditional meal style of Japanese Buddhist monks,we will create a multi-course meal putting a modern spin on this traditionally plant-based classic style that dates back to the 13th century.
Our meal will follow the model of "ichiju sansei" – which translates to "one soup, three dishes" – along with pickles and rice. Our seasonal meal will include a desert, as well. Recipes will be determined by what is available the day of the class but may include eggplant unagi, fresh bamboo shoots, spring greens, tofu salad, spinach gomae, miso soup, and/or tofu katsu.
We will work in teams to create all the recipes and then sit down together and enjoy the wonderful meal we created together.
