Work alongside Mrs. Horikawa, a longtime resident of Yamagata City who runs a series of cultural workshops in her beautiful traditional Japanese storehouse that has been in her family for generations.
In this culinary workshop you will learn how to prepare a local style of tofu with Yamagata soybeans from start to finish.
Together with Mrs. Horikawa, you will learn how tofu is made step by step including boiling, blending, filtering, and setting the tofu into its block form.
As is typical in Japanese cuisine, no ingredients go to waste and you will also be working with the leftover soybean material that is filtered out when making the tofu. With this bean curd, you will make one of a variety of dishes with Horikawa San that will be served in the meal after your workshop.
Together with the ingredients you make, you will then enjoy a lunch centered around the soybean cooking that you have done with Mrs. Horikawa.
Horikawa speaks english and has prepared English materials that makes this workshop very easy to enjoy.
She is also very friendly and you can ask her anything you want about her hometown, so consider this a great place to get other ideas for tourism here in Yamagata too!
Note: Please inform us of any allergies or dietary needs.
