Taste traditional dishes from Japan here at the Gardens. In this cooking demo, you’ll leave with a better understanding of the unique taste of umami, one of the five basic tastes essential in Japanese cuisine. Umami translates to mean “essence of deliciousness.” Menu and food demonstration notes will be supplied for attendees to practice Japanese cooking techniques and further utilize the amino acid umami in their home cooking.


— Takikomi Gohan – Japanese Mixed Rice

— Tamagoyaki – Japanese Rolled Omelette

— Goma-ae – Japanese spinach salad

Afterwards, each student will learn how to roll their own sushi and take home a sushi-making kit. 


This program is a partnership with Japan / America Society of Kentucky
