Join Kanae for a market tour of Nijyo Ichiba before heading to her kitchen to learn how to prepare traditional Japanese dishes such as kinpira-gobo (sweet and salty cooked burdock), agedashi-tofu (deep fried and seasoned tofu), miso soup and a Japanese dessert.
A US college graduate, Kanae is a fun host who loves to share stories about how locals live and eat. She is eager to accommodate your request for menus so let her know when you make a booking request. She is also happy to introduce Hokkaido dishes such as soup curry, chan chan yaki and kaisen-don (donburi of fresh seafood) instead of typical homestyle menus.
Originally from Kamakura, Kanae and her husband and two daughters have lived in Sapporo for over a decade. Influenced by her mother who was a great cook, Kanae has always loved food and cooking. Having lived in Hokkaido that boasts the best produce in Japan, Kanae appreciates and enjoys cooking with locally sourced fresh, native vegetables, fish, meat and seasonings.
