Wagyu Beef Sukiyaki Hot Pot with Youko Yamamoto

  • 3:00pm
  • 37b north front street, kingston, ny 12401

Sukiyaki is a Japanese winter dish that is prepared and served in the nabemono (Japanese hot pot) style consisting of meat (usually thinly sliced beef) which is slowly cooked or simmered at the table, alongside vegetables and other ingredients, in a shallow iron pot in a mixture of soy sauce, sugar and mirin. Traditionally, ingredients are dipped in a small bowl of raw, beaten eggs (grated daikon will be available as an alternate)  after being cooked in the pot, and then eaten.

In this workshop, Youko will lead us through the traditional steps for the hot pot preparation process.  Students will learn the very specific cut each ingredient requires, how to arrange ingredients on the tray, how to prepare dipping sauces, traditional tablewares needed, how to set up the sukiyaki pot, how to prepare the sukiyaki sauce, and then the actual cooking and eating manner!

To make this evening extra special we’re upgrading to Wagyu Beef along with other traditional ingredients including Tofu, Scallion, Greens, Shirataki (Kon’nyaku yam noodle), Shiitake Mushroom, Carrots, Bean Sprouts, Napa Cabbage, Burdock Root and Udon Noodles.

$95 per student includes 2.5hr workshop and recipes PLUS eat-what-you-make.  We’ve limited to only 8 students to keep this workshop nice and intimate!  Please feel free to BYOB if you would like to imbibe while we eat.

Youko Yamamoto was born in Yokohama, Japan and grew up to cook with her mother, aunts and grandmother. Her father also educated her cooking by taking her all over Japan to eat in many styles of gourmet food. She moved to New York City in 1981 to attend Pratt Institute to study graphic design. She started to teach cooking in the Park Slope Food Co-op, Brooklyn in 1998, as well as other places in Brooklyn and Manhattan. She and her family moved to the Hudson Valley in 2000. She is currently planning to open a ramen noodle shop in Kingston after closing the well-established Japanese noodle shop “Gomen-Kudasai” in New Paltz, NY which was open from 2008 – 2018 where she trained many young people, provided jobs for students and legal aliens, and shared Japanese cultures with the community.

Gomen-Ramen, an authentic Japanese Ramen Noodle Shop is coming to Kingston this Fall!  Soon you can enjoy the Ramen Noodle Soup that inherits Gomen-Kudasai’s DNA, lots of UMAMI and is healthy for all.
