The Japanese rice bowl known as donburi (or “don”) is an infinitely customizable and well-loved comfort food. Kanako will share two of her favorite donburi dishes, Oyako Don (chicken and egg simmered in dashi over rice); and Gyu Don (thin slices of beef and onion simmered in dashi over rice). She’ll cover the techniques for creating the fluffy rice base, preparing toppings and plating them for a beautiful donburi presentation. You’ll also learn how to make dashi broth — the base for many Japanese dishes, including Miso Soup, which Kanako will make in class.
Contains meat, seafood, dairy and eggs; optional gluten.
