Yakisoba with broccoli and sprouts


Yakisoba is a Japanese stir-fried noodle dish that can be served with various toppings. It's often sold in the form of street food from stalls or restaurants, especially in Japan where it has become popular enough to have large chains dedicated solely to serving Yakisoba dishes.

Fresh spring rolls

Fresh Spring Rolls

Spring rolls are a roll-shaped Asian appetizer and snack item. The skin is made from a thin sheet of unleavened flour or rice noodle, wrapped around a filling that usually consists of vegetables and/or meats. Spring rolls are served either deep-fried or fresh.

Sushi rolls

California Rolls

A California Roll (also known as "inside-out sushi" because the nori is on the inside and the rice is on the outside) typically consists of cooked Surimi, avocado, cucumber, and Masago. It is often served with soy sauce and wasabi.

Strawberries with chocolate

Matcha Chocolate Covered Strawberries

These sweet treats are a delicious way to end a Japanese meal. The strawberries are dipped in melted chocolate and then coated in a fine layer of matcha powder. They are best served chilled.

At Katsumi's Teaching Kitchen, we are committed to teaching people how to make delicious, healthy Japanese food. In our Japanese Beer and Food Pairing Class, you will learn how to create these three amazing main dishes that are perfect for any occasion.
