Thank you very much for all who attended recent Hiroko’s American Kitchen cooking classes at Central Market in Houston, Austin and Dallas. Great to see you all. Delightful that every student loved the dishes which I presented – Spiced Kabocha Squash Soup (under Kelp stock, page 18), Sake-Braised Short Ribs (under Kelp Stock, page 33), White Sumiso Sauce (Basic Sauce, page 76), Mushrooms and Poached Eggs (under White Sumiso Sauce, page 84) and Cumiso-Marinated Grilled Chicken (under White Sumiso Sauce, page 97). You really ate very well.
Central Market Cooking School is one of the best avocational cooking schools in America. They take care of both students and visiting instructors like myself. Good management, highly committed and superb quality chefs working in the kitchen and fresh and quality ingredients from the store are always impressive. I do not have a whole names here but I would like to extend my thanks to chef Linda and Patrick from Dallas school, chef Scot, Cindy and Louis from Austin school, and chef Tony, Michael, Mario and Juan from Houston school.
