A temple cuisine workshop with Masami Asao, Saturday and/or Sunday, November 4 and/or 5, 10 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. Learn delicious, traditional Japanese recipes in a beautiful temple setting. Shojin ryori is an ancient form of Buddhist temple cooking that uses only simple, seasonal plant-based ingredients (no meat, fish, eggs, or even strong-smelling vegetables such as onions and garlic). The experience of making and eating shojin ryori connects you to the heart, spirit, and traditions of Japan. In this workshop you will learn to prepare shojin ryori dishes with one of Japan’s leading instructors. Masami Asao Sensei is a temple chef and registered dietitian and is Director of Akasaka Teran, a vegetarian cooking school located within Jokokuji, a 350-year-old temple in Tokyo.

There will be a different menu each day. Attend either or both days.*

$85 per day or $150 for both days. Instruction in Japanese with an English interpreter. Space is limited, so please register early!

*Note: Sunday is full.
