The food you eat can either be the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison.

Japanese superfoods have bountiful healing opportunities, including cleansing the blood, remedies for common flu symptoms and boosting the immune system and optimising the digestive system. Once used as medicine in ancient times, these superfoods have the ability to ward off diseases and promote a longer, healthier and happier life.

Start a healthier and happier life for yourself and your loved ones, in Yoshiko Takeuchi’s fun and hands-on cooking workshop.

This class covers foods and cooking techniques for:
• Cleansing our blood
• Preventing illness
• Macrobiotic home remedies for common symptoms of the flu, sore throat, and stomach upset
• Boosting our immune system
• Optimising our digestive system
• Fermentation, containing probiotics and prebiotics

As a sample, some tasty dishes and ingredients you could play with on the day include:
• 3 types of noodles: Konnyaku noodle with umeboshi, black rice noodle with shallot and rice noodle with nori ( seaweed), served with a detox soup made with Japanese dashi, daikon, kuzu, shiitake and ginger.
• Cauliflower fried rice done in two ways - one cooked with wok and another in the oven.
• Raw cauliflower outer leaves mixed with plum vinegar and ground sesame
• Kuzu apple and Amazake pudding with raw kiwi sauce for dessert

Also, all of Yoshiko's classes (except the "Japanese Cooking Class (Advanced)") are suitable for vegans.
