Even Japanese people tend to think that they know it, but surprisingly they don't know it.

"Vegetarian food is the basis of the Japanese"

This cooking class is a place where you can make a loose vegetarian set / one plate online with you based on the concept of Zenji's shōjin ryō.

`` Get used to it rather than learn it''

Here, each student sees the recipe prepared here in their own kitchen at home, and at that time, they are taught the proportion of the amount of ingredients, and according to the amount to make, in the mountains of Northern California. I cook at the same time as I am at home, and even serve it on a plate or a set.

* Participation form is up to you. Some people visit the course, take notes, and try to make it at a later date.

* About vegetable dishes

* Basics of cooking

* Arrangement

The Buddhist cuisine

Shojin ryō is the basis of modern Japanese cuisine, and in recent years it often refers to vegetarian and vegan dishes, but originally it means the dishes made by monks at temples, and was the founder of Zen Buddhism and Soto Buddhism. It was established by a book by Dogen (1200-1253), "Lessons of the Book".

The way Japanese people casually eat is also meaningful. According to the recipe, we emphasize not only cutting and cooking vegetables, but also the attitude of cooking and the attitude of receiving food, and explain its importance.

At One Plate Zen, we will explain the devoted dishes offered at Zen temples and the manners of receiving them in an easy-to-understand manner by chewing them "at the Yuru devoted cooking course".

It will surely be useful for making daily meals!

Course information

      Basic edition Ichiju Sansai 3 weeks continuous course 

Unlike ordinary cooking classes, what is shōjin ryō based on the concept of shōjin ryō in Zen temple, by combining it with ingredients at home and side dishes that are usually served on the table? While learning that, we will serve it on a well-balanced set / one plate.

By serving on one plate or set, you can check the overall balance with your own eyes.

Not only the taste, but also what is missing and what should be added to make it look more beautiful as a single meal.

I will think.
