Join me in our hilltop home in Mirukashi for three days of cooking elegant kateryori (home cooked) meals. With my home as our base, we'll plan seasonal meals, cook together, plate our food on the myriad of hand crafted wares we find on the shelves, and feast together. We'll explore the flavors of the seasons in the context of one of the world’s greatest culinary traditions. We’ll take our cues from the old almanac that divides the year into 24 seasons, each with its own special taste combinations. We'll venture out on one or two jaunts to meet local growers or producers to better understand our ingredients and surroundings.
Each session opens with a welcome dinner followed by three full days together exploring the flavors of the season at hand.
To keep the experience intimate, the group size is limited to 6 people.
Day 1: Arrival and welcome dinner at a beloved local restaurant.
Day 2: All day cooking and feasting together at my home.
Day 3: A special workshop and/or outing designed to dive deeper into our ingredients and surroundings followed by a private dinner at the home of our best local chef.
Day 4: One more full day of cooking and feasting together in Mirukashi.
The cost is 1750 USD. The fee covers three lunches, four dinners with drink, and all costs associated with our workshops and outings. Travel to and from Karatsu, accommodation, and daily transportation to and from meeting points are also not included. Regarding accommodation, I can offer suggestions across a range of budgets.
* Programs outside of those described below can be arranged for groups of 6 people.
