Join Elizabeth Andoh online. Master the basics of the classic Japanese kitchen.

Master timeless Japanese cooking techniques for quick, easy and incredibly flavorful dishes any night of the week. IACP Award-winning cookbook author Elizabeth Andoh is your guide as you learn how to build flavor with Japanese stocks and make your first dish: savory dashi-steeped green beans. Then, uncover the secrets to perfectly cooked rice for quick and nutritious meals, including salmon-stuffed rice bundles and rainbow bowls. Miso soup may get all the attention, but in your next lesson, Elizabeth shows you how miso can impart its flavor to a variety of dishes, including Japanese meatballs. And, she shares her simple tricks for pickled veggies, the perfect accompaniment to any meal. Plus, get comfortable cooking Japanese dishes on your stovetop, from salmon teriyaki to blistered peppers and even skillet-seared steak. And deep-fry your way to crispy tempura anytime you wish.
