Cooking Class「Italian recipes and Kinako pudding by KASANE-NI」

 Miho senseis Special food and nutrition education program
Based on yin and yang cooking

Kasane-ni de Italian and Kinako pudding recipes

Today we cooked Italian foods with Kasane-ni!
Miho sensei usually teaches us healthy washoku recipes which are seasoned with soy sauce or miso, but today we learned some Italian foods.
We learned 5 kinds of recipes together, taking care of our babies and kids. Of course,during the class we participants do Onbu and dakko sometimes, change diapers and give a mothers milk to meet our babies needs.

Todays menu
1.    Eggplants and mushrooms pizza (homemade tomato sauce)
2.    Pasta with fresh cabbage and the young of sardines
3.    Broccoli potage (thick soup)
4.    Marinated squid and vegetables
5.    Kinako (soybean flour) pudding

We first started with the pizza dough as it needs to be fermented for a while. Next,she taught us how to make tomato sauce for a pizza. To our surprise, she uses Umeboshi for it to harmonize the ingredients. When we ate pizza during the lunch time, we knew that Umeboshi enriched the taste of tomato sauce. It tasted so good!


As usual, to make pasta and potage, we cut ingredients, put them in the pan with the appropriate order, put some water in it and then heat it. (Kasane-ni)

Today, she taught us a marinade recipe which doesnt require heating.

Kinako pudding is made of starch from the Kudzu root. Kudzu makes your body warmer from inside. Also it has a good effect on intestinal disorders. So this kinako pudding is very healthy.
We successfully cooked 5 dishes in cooperation with each other, and then ate our lunch all together. 1-year-old kids seemed to like todays Italian dishes so they munched. 

People got to know each other really quickly (cooking makes bonds!) and soon the room was full of laughter as we shared our recent good/bad experiences and engaged in friendly conversation.
