Shojin Ryori is the traditional vegetarian cooking style of Japanese Zen Buddhist monks. It emphasises simplicity, and gentle seasoning. Ingredients centre around seasonal vegetables and wild mountain plants, and this cuisine is believed to bring balance to one's body and mind.

Setsuko will guide you through a Shojin Ryori experience. Over 4 relaxing hours in her Glebe cafe, you'll make a tasty and nutritious selection of dishes, which you'll then of course eat together, for lunch. You'll get detailed demonstrations, as well as one-on-one guidance - all part of your Zen experience.

What's included:

A small glass of Sake
Potato dish (potatoes and sweet potatoes)
Egg plants with Yuzu miso sauce
Pumpkin dish
Lotus roots dish
Tempura of Kinoko (mushroom tempura)
Rice dish
Miso soup with vegetables
Dessert with persimmon

Floristry Teacher

4.9 (123)

I am a passionate qualified florist and teacher, with over 15 years of experience in floristry. I am the founder of Yuga Floral Design in Glebe.

I am specialised in Japanese (Ikebana) and European styles of arrangement. My work expresses a contemporary marriage between the exquisitely refined traditions of Japanese floral art Ikebana, and the vibrant textures and colours of Australia. I regularly provide flower arrangements for Sydney University, Sydney restaurants like Masuya Group, weddings, and more.

My Ikebana journey started at a young age, with the Ikebana that my mother created with flowers picked from the fields and gardens around our home, and has continued and evolved ever since.

Flowers to heal your soul.

Let's arrange flowers.
