At the Japan Society
Spicy, earthy, and a little sweet, shichimi togarashi is a common spice mixture that will add flavor to a wide variety of dishes. This versatile seasoning gained popularity in the Edo period for its medicinal properties, but quickly became a staple in Japanese cuisine. Though found all over Japan, shichimi’s flavor profile varies from region to region. At this workshop, Yuki Muroga from Yawataya Isogoro in Nagano will explain the history, preparation and variety of shichimi, and participants will measure and mix their own unique shichimi blend using authentic and high quality ingredients.
