Banquet (20+ Guests)

For a year in San Francisco I trained with Chef Takashi Saito in traditional Japanese cooking. He taught me how to make miso, shoyu, and amazake, which we'll also use in this dinner. I personally am already hungry for this... see you soon!

Menu detail

Chilled Genmai Cha (Tea)
Genmai Cha is a very mild Japanese Matcha and Toasted Rice Blend that is excellent served chilled. It's so mellow you can drink it like water, and it's often what parents first give to children in Japan when they teach them about tea! It's chill, and we'll serve it chilled all throughout the dinner.
