Chirashi sushi(called Chirashi Zushi in Japan and literally means “scattered sushi”), is usually made for celebrations such as Girls Day(3rd March),New year celebrations or Birthday parties as it’s a very colorful and cheerful looking dish.
You can keep with the traditional ingredients, or use a variety of ingredients to make your own original dish! This time I’ll show you how to make vegan/vegetarian based dish.
I will teach you the traditional style of Chirashi sushi, how to prepare the sushi rice and prepare and make the various toppings. I will demonstrate how we decorate it nicely (especially the carrot flower).
I’ll also show you how to make a green vegetable&sesame paste side dish, as well as home made miso soup(using homemade miso paste) without using fish stock.
Hi, my name is Takako. I grew up in a Sushi restaurant in Japan as my dad is sushi chef. I’ve been interested in cooking since I was little and I'm still passionate about cooking everyday.
I lived in London for 20 years and taught Japanese cooking to my friends.
I am experienced with vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, macrobiotic and of course traditional Japanese food, so please let me know your interest.
My home is near Inokashira Park, which is world famous for cherry blossoms and autumn colours; as well as the popular town of Kichijoji. I can also recommend you fantastic restaurants in the area.
