  • the very definition of comfort food, literally means “pot” in Japanese.
  • Richly-flavored stews, cooked and served at the table.
  • Typically served with family and friends.



Master Class will cover technique and regional traditions in these dishes:

* Yosenabe: is one of the most popular nabemono in Japan. Yose means “putting together” and thus implies that all ingredients, including the meat, seafood, egg, tofu and vegetables are cooked together in a pot. Yosenabe is typically based on a broth made with miso or soy sauce flavorings.
* Sukiyaki: thinly sliced beef, tofu, vegetables and starch noodles stewed in sweetened soy and eaten with a raw egg dip.
* Shabu shabu: thinly sliced beef and other ingredients, eaten with a ponzu or sesame dip.
* Motsunabe: made with beef or pork offal, originally a local cuisine of Fukuoka but popularized nationwide in the 1990s because of its taste and moderate price. The ingredients of motsunabe vary from restaurant to restaurant, but it is typical to boil the fresh cow offal with cabbage and garlic chives. After serving offal and vegetables, the remaining soup is used to cook noodles. The soup bases are mainly soy sauce or miso.
* Yudofu: a simple dish of tofu simmered in a kombu stock and served with ponzu and various condiments.
