The workshops will take place at the Farm Shop at Wheal Rose, Scorrier, on the evening of 23rd February and lunchtime on 25th February; spaces are limited and expected to sell out quickly.
Naoko Kashiwagi is originally from Toyko, where she started giving cookery lessons; she moved to Cornwall in 2013 and began teaching authentic Japanese cookery at home, as well as delivering workshops, Japanese Supper Clubs and catering for private functions.
Tara O’Donnell, Farm Shop Manager, said: “We are really looking forward to hosting these workshops with Naoko, who has a creative and inspiring approach to teaching. These events are an opportunity for our customers to learn new skills, and enjoy eating delicious, healthy food together.”
Each session will begin with an introduction to the fascinating history of Japanese food, followed by a sushi making demonstration; participants will then have a go themselves, and finally taste their creations.
Naoko said: “I love teaching people about the techniques and practices behind modern Japanese food. Sushi is fun and easy to make when you know how. The people who come to my classes carry on the tradition by enjoying sushi with their families at home.”
Naoko and her guests will be preparing dishes such as Cornish Crab Inari sushi, Lightly Seared Tuna in Yuzi soy, and Teriyaki Chicken Steak.
Tara said: “We know that our customers here at the Farm Shop love experimenting and trying new things. These workshops will be the first in a series, in which we will be making the most of talented, specialist chefs here in Cornwall.”
Spaces on each workshop are limited to 15 participants and the price is £32ph.
The workshops take place on 23rd February (6.30pm – 9pm) and 25th February (11am – 1.30pm) at Etherington’s Farm Shop, Wheal Rose. Call 01209 899 203 to book.
