RESOBOX Japanese Cooking Workshop Series #3: Chikuzen-ni (braised chicken and vegetables) Workshop
Instructor: Asako Nonaka
Date & Time: February 22, 2015 ◆ 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Class Fee: $40
Chikuzen-ni is a dish that originated from northern Kyushu, Japan, made of braised chicken and vegetables. It is often eaten when ringing in the New Year in Japan.
Using shiitake mushroom broth, the ingredients (chicken, burdock, carrots, lotus root, taro, and konnyaku) are braised with soy sauce, mirin, and sugar. Chikuzen-ni boasts a strong umami (savory) flavor. The root vegetables warm the body, so it’s a great dish for these wintry February days.
In this workshop led by the instructor Asako Nonaka, you will learn how to cook chikuzen-ni so that you can do it yourself at home. You will also learn how to decoratively cut vegetables, like in the picture. It is a Japanese cooking art and makes your dish beautiful. Feel free to join!
