This week my good friend, Seiko, from Japan paid us a visit and happened to be here at the same time as our cooking session. We changed our plans and have decided to make it a Japanese session with Sushi and Furoshiki making.
We had great fun and a delicious meal with sushi,and a vegetable soup.
To make the rice we use Sushi rice and added some Kombu in the rice cooker
for the vinegar we had
5 tbs Rice vinegar
3 tbs sugar
1 tbs salt
We made Kinshi Tamago (egg omelet)
pinch of salt
For the Shitake Mushroom (5)
1 tbs sugar
1/2 tbs soy sauce
2 1/2 tbs dashi (soaking liquid)
The soup we used vegetables from the garden (onion, broccoli stem, carrots, red pepper, the left over mushroom soaking liquid and a stock cube for a little extra flavouring.
Whilst the soup was simmering we had a Furoshiki demonstration on how to make a shopping/handbag out of a square cloth.
