Japanese Street Food

Katsu Curry & Kushi-Age

October 12th 2019 | 10:30 am - 1:30 pm

About this class

Traditionally this dish is eaten at home the night before exams; as the word ‘Katsu’ sounds similar to ‘win’ and so brings luck. In many ways, it is a Japanese street food and Katsu continues it’s rise in popularity here in the UK. Yuki will show you how to prepare these well loved dishes at home, with ease and using ingredients that you can find locally.

“I’ll teach you how to prepare a Japanese curry spice mix and perfect Japanese rice. Alongside this you’ll be learning the method of preparing a light, crunchy panko (Japanese bread crumb) and some salad side dishes. A Japanese cooking class for all Katsu curry lovers!”

Yuki will recommend Japanese grocery suppliers and give you some suggestions for shopping there. You can learn more about the specifics of presenting the dishes and Japanese food culture. By the end you’ll have a meal to enjoy and be ready to cook Katsu Curry for yourself alongside some perfectly paired sides dishes.
