Dinner tonight : "oishi!"
So, I went for the cooking lesson today.
Recently I met a cooking teacher at my gym and she offered to show me how to make traditional Japanese New Year food.
A friend who has a Japanese family too came along to learn and we made:
1) simmered chicken and vegetables.
2) Fish paste and egg roll.
3) Rolled seaweed and salmon.
It was fun to learn howto cut vegetables. How to season correctly and how to tie seaweed with gourd strips.
We went home with what we had cooked....and my Okaasan said: "oishi!".
In 3 weeks time, at New Year, I will try to make these things again? Maybe.
