Bang on trend and a class that you won’t find outside of London – Japanese Street Food!
Japan has a big tradition of street food with huge festivals serving up delicious warm snacks. Yukiko will guide you through the three of their most popular dishes. This class is a first and will introduce to you to a myriad of new ingredients – all easily available to buy – and something to impress your friends and family with!
Okonomiyaki is the Japanese variation of a savory pancake, filled with cabbage and a topping of your choice. When broken down to okonomi (as you like it) and yaki (grilled), the word itself means grilled as you like it, so okonomiyaki is a very personal meal.
Takoyaki is a traditional marketplace street food found in Japan. The snack is shaped in a delicious ball made of wheat flour in a special takoyaki pan, designed to create the shape. It is usually filled with minced or diced octopus, tempura scraps, pickled ginger and green onion. The takoyaki balls are then brushed over with a sauce resembling Worcestershire sauce, and mayonnaise, and are finally topped with dried bonito flakes.
Omu-soba are one of the most-beloved snacks enjoyed at Japanese festivals throughout the year. Yakisoba, literally “fried buckwheat”, is a Japanese noodle stir-fry wrapped in fluffy omelette.
We will enjoy all this with a cold Japanese beer – what better way to enjoy a Saturday afternoon.
