Japanese Party

My oldest daughter is taking a Japanese culture class and had an assignment about Japanese food to do. She’s visited Japan twice, but her professor asked her to write about a new experience. So, we planned a party! She had a few friends over and they had a great time!

What was on the menu?

Shabu shabu – thinly sliced beef, shiitakes mushrooms, leeks, bok choy and tofu cooked in a broth flavored with kombu seaweed.

Soba noodles dipped in ponzu sauce.

Umeboshi – pickled Japanese plums

Matcha tea

Wasabi and tamari rice crackers

Mochi green tea ice cream
