YOUR HOST

Megumi SATO

Hello, my name is Megumi Sato. As I grew up eating delicious vegetables made by my father from a young age, I found myself delighted by the taste of the delicious ingredients. My lifelong love and study of cooking (and eating) started with this joy. I studied as a dietician at Hattori Nutrition College, and I’ve worked in the confectionery field and as an assistant at a vocational culinary school for many years. For the past 30 years, I’ve also helped the Tokyo YWCA by cooking fresh, traditional meals in the kitchen of the log cabin during their camping trips. It’s very enjoyable to go out to the local farms, talk with the farmers and gather fresh ingredients for meals. In my classes, we never use chemicals or pre-made, store-bought ingredients — everything is prepared from scratch. I want people to come away with a connection to their food, and the deeply joyful realization that, “Surprise! Cooking is easy and fun!”

WHAT TO EXPECT

Do you love traditional Japanese food, but feel that it’s too difficult a cuisine to learn? Have you got the idea that you need special ingredients and years of study just to make something authentically delicious? Megumi Sato is waiting to teach you that cooking is easy and fun — with a few important tricks, you will learn how to prepare a gorgeous, full-course Japanese meal from all-natural ingredients in the comfort of your own home. Megumi’s menu changes seasonally (she also takes requests), so no matter what you make you will be using the most delicious seasonal ingredients! From beautiful pressed sushi and juicy chicken cutlets with Japanese-style tartar sauce (made from scratch), to rainbow-colored rice salad and scrumptious homemade dessert, there will be something for every palette. After the cooking is done, enjoy learning how to serve your yummy handmade food in exquisite handmade serving dishes, for a traditional meal experience. With the tricks you’ll learn, you will be able to cook these, and many more wonderful Japanese dishes at home, and also apply your new knowledge to your own dishes too, much to the delight of your family and friends. Food is one of the things that connects us all — let’s make it fun!
