Since the opening on August 20, the “Agriculture Experience and Cooking Class Tour” focusing on Towada City’s proud agricultural products has been held with different ingredients depending on the season. The agricultural products that serve as a bird for the tour are autumn-harvested Chinese yam, which reaches its season on the border between autumn and winter. An experience of digging up and cooking yams will be held on November 26th (Sat) and December 3rd (Sat).
Towada yams are white and sticky, but autumn-harvested yam are fresh, crunchy, and have little bitterness. While you can make the best use of its flavor by eating it with aemono or lightly pickled vegetables, the fluffy yam is also sweet and delicious. Since the skin is thin, you can reduce the loss of nutrients by slicing the skin into round slices and grilling them quickly. Let’s get through the cold winter in good health by warming the body with Towada yam, which is also good for intestinal regulation and nourishment.
During the tour, you will experience picking yam under the guidance of the Towada Agricultural Experience Liaison Council, and listen to Nagisa Nagisa’s lecture on yam recipes. Cooking class menu is tuna, burdock and yam cooked rice, yam stuffed with meat, fluffy omelet with yam, and yam steak with mushroom sauce. You can make and enjoy a lunch that gently warms your body using the Chinese yam that you dug yourself.
By experiencing the joy of harvesting, this tour aims to convey the splendor of Towada City, which is rich in agricultural resources, and revitalize the region. I know that you are very busy, but I would appreciate it if you could interview me and introduce me.
