Kayoko NOSEI

Hi, my name is Kayoko Nose, and I am an active 70-years-young trooper and jack of all trades. Although I have retired from the advertising and publishing industries where I spent my working years, I have not slowed down my relentless pace of living as I feel that there is so much one can explore about life. For instance, I moved to Kamakura and learned diligently about its mouth-watering gourmet culture. Enthusiastic about contributing to society, I volunteered for five years and held seminars that empowered people to adopt a healthy diet. I notice that the art of cooking has recently been lost among young people. I wish to do what I can to reverse this trend and teach youth how to cook simple, yet nutritious dishes. That's why I hold cooking classes at my own home. On a related note, leveraging my experience, I also counsel couples who face marital problems. You can say that I support young people's holistic growth, be it through their palates or through their hearts.

The gourmet culture of a place is inextricably connected to its local produce, so let's dive in and immerse ourselves in learning about the fresh, high-quality vegetables and other local ingredients Kamakura is famous for. Soak in the warm and casual ambience at the Kamakura City Farmers' Market and purchase the ingredients you will use to make your lunch later. As a bonus, you can even buy focaccia (oven-baked Italian bread) and smoked cheese as souvenirs. After shopping, it's time for you to flaunt your cooking skills in the kitchen. You host will guide you on how to make an Ichiju Sansai lunch that is comprised of one soup, one main dish and two side dishes. What better opportunity to learn how seasonal vegetables are used in Japan to make dishes that convey the essence and mood of a season? A particular highlight is making dashi (Japanese soup stock). Made entirely of soybeans and fish, dashi can even be enjoyed by babies. As you tuck into your lunch, the host will provide you with exclusive information about various tourist attractions. This will definitely come in handy should you decide to stroll the lovely streets of Kamakura after lunch!
