What you'll do

Tofu is one of the most popular staple Asian foods and is a great source of protein for those who live a plant-based lifestyle. Tofu is used a lot in Sho-jin Ryori (Japanese Buddhist vegetarian meals) and it is low in calories, easy to digest and also easy to convert into energy!
Tofu comes in many different sizes, colors and textures. In this class, we will teach you how to make the Japanese style tofu with both soybeans (the traditional way of making tofu) and also chickpeas (for those who eat a soy-free diet).

WHAT IS JAPANESE TOFU?
Tofu was first made in China about 2000 years ago and was later introduced in Japan by Buddhist monks during the Kamakura period (AD.1185 - 1333). After many years of research (the Japanese love details!), the original recipe was "localized" and converted into different variations of Tofu such as silk tofu, cotton tofu, hard tofu, sesame tofu.

WHAT IS CHICKPEA TOFU?
Chickpea is a legume with many health benefits. It is low in fat and high in protein and fiber. It is the key ingredient for the preparation of hummus and falafel. We've came up with a special recipe to make chickpea Tofu made with 100% chickpeas to substitute the traditional soy tofu.

Hi, I am Michiko and I’m a Japanese Chef. I recently moved to Hong Kong where I will continue developing my passion for food and teaching how to prepare real Japanese dishes in an easy, fun and enjoyable way at home.

I always had a natural passion for food but I also love teaching as it gives me the opportunity to meet people, understand different cultures and exchange experiences.

While in Japan I used to be a qualified chef at Tokyo ABC Cooking School and I am developing my skills in Vegan and Row cuisine at an Organic Food Kitchen Studio in Hong Kong. and now I'm moving back to my beautiful home town Kanazawa and sharing all of my passion and experience with you!

Welcome to Michi's Table, Look forward to seeing you and cooking together!
