And experience the day-to-day modern Japanese cooking.

If you love the food in Niseko, there is one activity in town you shouldn’t miss: Cooking Workshops hosted by the author of award-winning cookbook “Harvest Niseko” and owner of Niseko Gourmet, Tess Stomski.

Participants will be able to learn not only how to make a simple yet delicious Japanese Teishoku (set menu) with a mix of traditional and modern recipes, but also how to use the Japanese ingredients and seasoning in their own cooking.

The workshop is set up to make cooking fun for anyone: no matter you are the type who cooks every day or who considers mixing salad with dressing as cooking – you will leave the workshop feeling like you are armed with great knowledge and ready to go home and whip out a healthy Japanese meal.

For the 2017-18 season, the menu you will learn includes:

  • Tofu, pork & beef hamburg
  • Potato and bacon miso soup
  • Brown rice steamed with barley and moro miso
  • Simmered burdock, carrot and chilli
  • Daikon and yuzu pickles
  • Green leaves, seasonal vegetables, umeboshi dressing

The workshop will take place conveniently in Mick’s Wine Cellars in Hirafu, and tasting some fine wine with the fruits of your labor is just the perfect combo for your Niseko holiday!

The workshop is available Monday to Saturday from 10:30 to 13:00. For reservations, please email: [email protected]
