Join us for shojin-ryori! Shojin-ryori is a style of cuisine prepared by Buddhist monks according to traditional preparation methods. It focuses on the use of seasonal ingredients and no animal products, so these recipes are completely vegan! For our class we will be making three quintessential shoji-ryori dishes: kenchin-jiru (vegetable and tofu soup), gomadofu (a custard-like sesame dish), and nasu-dengaku (roasted eggplant with a red miso glaze)! 


Check the ingredients list before registering.  Once registered you will receive a confirmation email with the Zoom link. We will send the recipe card a week before the class.
