Hinamatsuri (Girls’ Day Festival)

February 26, 2022 / by Junko

Today was our second Membership lesson for February. Another hinamatsuri lesson with 3 lovely ladies today!
We learned the sogigiri cutting technique and how to cure sashimi with seaweed.

We had a new visitor, a lady who came to our kitchen a few years ago when we were filmed to do an introduction on sushi for a German children’s TV program. It was a pleasure seeing her again!

This group was creative like the last, and did a great job decorating the Hinamatsuri dishes💕
We had a great time cooking, eating and chatting together, full of girl power to celebrate Girl’s Day!! 👭🌸🍡👭🌸🍡👭
Hope to see you all at our March lesson!!

There are so many Japanese dishes and cultures that are not well known outside of Japan and I’m happy to introduce them to you! If you tested any of our recipes feel free to send us a photo and your comments and we will be happy to publish them, even if it wasn't a complete success! :)
