My name is Mutsuko Nakahata, and my passion is clean living. Of course, this includes healthy eating, but clean living is certainly not limited just to healthy eating. “Better living day-by-day” is an important concept to me, and something I try and implement in my own life. One of my greatest interests is hearing about the lifestyles of other people so I can identify ways to improve my own life. That being said, healthy eating is an area in which most people can improve, and in doing so they can easily improve their lives as well, which is why my experience focuses on showing my guests the beauties of Japanese foods. Miso soup, a well-known Japanese dish, may seem simple (just add some miso and veggies to water, right?), but in reality the flavour is dramatically changed by the selection, and even the origin, of the ingredients used. Let’s learn to make miso soup, and learn how we can make our lives better and healthier together!

Miso soup is an interesting dish: it is quite easy to make, and yet, or maybe because it is so easy to make, there are infinite variations of the dish. This experience will focus on the creation of miso soup in a variety of styles, such as Kanto (Tokyo area) style, Kanazawa (Ishikawa prefecture) style, Morioka (Iwate prefecture) style, Amakusa (Kumamoto prefecture) style, and Chizu (Tottori prefecture) style. You will cook up delicious soup using various healthy ingredients such as “wakame” (Seaweed), tofu, daikon (Chinese radish), clams, and miso (a soybean paste), which will be served in gorgeous vessels made from traditional materials, such as lacquerware or cedar. While the making will be fun, participants will also surely enjoy tasting their creations as they go.

    Our host Mutsuko was warm, welcoming, and absolutely wonderful!

    Our host Mutsuko was warm, welcoming, and absolutely wonderful! I've had some experience in making miso soup, but Mutsuko's miso selections were eye-opening, impeccably selected and prepared, and delicious; making all of it happen in a bright and cozy kitchen. We even got to make onigiri (rice balls), which were fun and a perfect snack in between miso making. Our interpreter did an excellent job expressing the knowledge and wit of our host as well. On the whole, a charming and authentic miso journey! See moreSee less
