5 day Japanese Cooking Challenge
Today what we’re going to be doing is kicking off a 5 day cooking challenge using dashi.
If you’ve ever wondered about cooking Japanese food and don’t know how to get started… now’s the time.
If you’ve already cooked Japanese food and want to learn more. This is your challenge.
Challenges are designed to get you results fast.
The challenge is taking action.
No more saying ‘someday’, ‘wouldn’t it be nice’, ‘oh i wish i could’, ‘i’m too busy’, ‘i don’t have the time’
Today’s the day you’re just gonna pick up and do it.
You know when you really want something you’ll get it.
And if you really want to learn how to cook Japanese, I’ll be here over the next 5 days LIVE to show you the way!
How the Japanese cooking challenge will work –
I’m going to be cooking live on Facebook for 5 days straight.
Join us here – Daidokoro – The Japanese Kitchen Facebook Group
At 6 PM PST each day (Monday- Friday) you’ll be able to interact with me as I show you what you can make with Japanese dashi stock.
On day 1 (today), we’ll start with some basics and make a dish or two.
Days 2-5 will take those basics and build out a menu that you can create using dashi as an ingredient!
Don’t know what to make with dashi??
We’ll you can make all kinds of Japanese dishes including, soups, stews, vegetables, fish, meat and more!
Check out the pictures below for a few ideas on what you can make with dashi –
- Spinach ohitashi
- Umeboshi Takikomi gohan
- Agedashi tofu
- Miso soup
- Curry udon
- and more!
Dashi is your all purpose base
Similar to chicken stock or beef stock.
There are a few major differences though.
Also, it only requires about 30 minutes start to finish!
If you’ve ever made Western chicken or beef stocks, you know it takes hours and hours before you can use it.
So that’s a big plus right there –
How about that?! 🙂
