Japanese Yosenabe Hot Pot Night

In-Person Northwest, Portland


Small (4-10 Guests)
Gluten Free
My sister-in-law, Hiromi, is from Japan and I have learned a lot of wonderful Japanese cooking from her. She is from a small town called Nagai in the Yamagata prefecture, nestled near the Asahi mountains in the northern part of Japan. Hot pot meals are quite popular there in the colder winter months - perfect for Portland right now! Yosenabe is a variety of nabemono (hot pot), in which all of the ingredients are cooked together in a broth in a cast iron (or clay) pot. The meal is cooked right at the table as diners can assemble the ingredients they want to cook in the pot with a special broth. Further ingredients are then successively added to the pot and you can enjoy many rounds of this communal-style meal. There will be two pots - one for meat and one for vegetarian.
