March 3rd is Girls’ Day in Japan, also known as Hinamatsuri- The Festival of Dolls. A traditional set of special dolls depicting the Japanese imperial court, called Hina dolls, is traditionally given to newborn girls and displayed prominently in each household for the holiday. On this holiday, Japanese mothers cook a special meal on this day to celebrate and pray for the health and happiness of the young girls in the family.
As with most holidays around the globe, food and drinks play a big role on Girls Day. Traditional celebration dishes for Hinamatsuri are prepared with delicacies and are ceremonially beautiful and delicious. Intricately decorated sushi often takes center stage along with soup and spring vegetable dishes, and of course, with Japanese sweets.
In this workshop, you will learn how to prepare Temari Sushi (hands on). Temari is a traditional decorative ball for girls, and Temari sushi is a bite size sushi with various toppings. Along with Temari sushi, you’ll enjoy spring green dishes, clam soup, and Amazake dessert. All dishes are prepared with Aedan Fermented Food’s Koji products which are made in the traditional Japanese way.
This cooking class is perfect for learning new and interesting skills, and for preparing for the upcoming Hinamatsuri!
Children above the age of 6 are more than to welcome to join this class.
