Cooking Class: Make a Modern Japanese Fare

Chef Aaron is ready to share tips for creating traditional Japanese cuisine using modern techniques and local organic ingredients. You'll start the meal with tempura shrimp and edamame accented with spicy mayonnaise. Next is okonomiyaki, a savory pancake known as "Japanese pizza" that's topped with cabbage, noodles, eggs or grilled meat. Then, enjoy a refreshing cucumber salad with seaweed, ponzu and ginger dressing. End this authentic meal with the sweetness of coconut matcha meringues.

Chef Aaron was awesome! Made the experience super fun, knowledgeable, and it’s honestly a pretty good deal for the amount of sushi we were left with to eat at the end!

Chef Aaron taught some great knife skills and how to make baja shrimp spring rolls, Asian/Hawaiian fusion style. Great explanations of what was going on. Finished product was tasty, with shrimp nicely coloured and fillings of mango, avo and cabbage with some lime juice.
