Advice to our Vegan and Vegetarian GuestsSakura Homestyle Japanese Cooking Classes In Kyoto
Advice to our Vegan and Vegetarian Guests:
Kazarimaki Sushi Roll Class
The basic ingredients are rice vinegar, sugar, sesame, ginger, vegetables and nori seaweed.
We use edible food colourings made from natural non-animal ingredients:
- Red comes from the mildew on fermented red rice;
- Blue is made from certain kinds of algae;
- Yellow is made from an extract of the gardenia fruit;
- Orange is extracted from Japanese mustard;
- Green/yellow and blue food colourings are from extracts of the gardenia fruit;
Okonomiyaki & Takoyaki Class
Our dashi (soup stock) is made from Shiitake mushrooms and Konbu seaweed and contains no fish products.
We use a soy substitute instead of pork, and takuan (pickled daikon radish) instead of octopus.
We can make Okonomiyaki or Takoyaki without cheese, eggs or dried shrimp too.
Our natural food colourings are all plant-based.
We do not use any chemical additives. Please feel free to ask any further questions.
Delightful cooking class in Kyoto
I really recommend anyone coming to Kyoto to book a class with Aya and her husband. They were charming hosts and the class was well worth the money. My daughter and I took a cooking class on some Japanese specialties and Aya was able to make the recipes vegan for my daughter. We didn't expect to be able to dress in traditional Japanese clothes and even have our hair done for the occasion. If we had had time, we would have loved to take one of her other cultural classes as I'm sure they are at the same outstanding level of quality and customer service.
