Natsuko Yamawaki’s Macrobiotic Cooking Class

Natsuko Yamawaki is a very talented chef and a very warm person who makes the atmosphere of the class very comfortable and enjoyable.  I felt really inspired by her methods of cooking and interesting combination of ingredients.  For example, her use of apple juice as a sweetener for hijiki salad instead of the traditional sugar and soy sauce changed a dish that is usually very thick and deep tasting to a light and refreshing salad.  I must say the macrobiotic shumai were my favorite and I already tried making them at home and they came out great! The use of shiokoji really added flare to the dish.  I have also made my own at home and started replacing salt with shiokoji. It really gives food a much deeper and more sophisticated taste.

After learning and taking part in preparing several dishes we sat down as a class and enjoyed the meal together.  The warm atmosphere combined with the interesting and welcoming people in the class really made it a pleasant experience. I definitely hope to be back again!

Natsuko Yamawaki holds Macrobiotic classes in Astoria Queens several times a month with different themes.
