Ramen and gyoza in a local house
Ramen (Soup with natural ingredients, boiled pork or chicken , marinated eggs) and gyoza dumplings, tea
We will make ramen and gyoza together at my house.
I live in a small seaside town called Oiso near Odawara in Kanagawa prefecture. I will pick you up at Ninomiya station on the JR Tokaido line. It takes only 5 minutes from Ninomiya station to my house. When you arrive at my house, I will show you my kitchen and we will move on to cooking. First of all, we will make soup for the ramen with all natural ingredients. Soup is the most important ingredient in ramen. I will explain the Japanese ingredients for the soup and also tell you how to use ingredients available in your own country. We will make toppings, "ajitama" which means half-boiled-eggs marinated in soy sauce and "chaashu" which means pork boiled in soy sauce. (If you don't eat pork, we can use chicken instead of pork.) While we wait for the soup to be done, we will make gyoza. Timing is very important for this recipe. Ramen should be very hot when you eat it, and the gyoza should be ready at the same time. Afterwards, we will eat the food together.
Hi! I’m Manami. I love cooking and meeting people. My husband is British and a lot of his family members are vegetarian or vegan, so I have been making vegetarian and vegan Japanese cuisine for them for many years and they love it. I know there are only a few vegetarian and vegan options in Japan, but I would like you to enjoy Japanese food culture.
