When Executive Chef Hiroki Abe cooks at Kajitsu, he is preparing shojin ryori — the traditional vegetarian-vegan cuisine of Buddhist monks in Japan. In this class, we’ll learn how to work with seasonal vegetables, which, according to tradition, bring balance and alignment to the body, mind, and spirit. Award-winning cookbook author and chef-instructor Hiroko Shimbo will offer insights into the techniques and history of the dishes.
