A taste of Japan: Artisan Yuba noodles, “umami” and a virtual slow tour of restaurants and destinations”

7.00 pm, Thursday, May 25 at St Paschal’s Church Hall, 30 Warraba Avenue, Wavell Heights, Brisbane.

Slow food Japanese style* promises to be a wonderful chance to understand more of the artisan, traditional and typical foods of Japan and explore the sixth sense “umami”.

Kyoto delights featuring Yuba Ancient soybean “artisan” craft with Mary-Anne Fraser who will talk about her recent food trip to Japan where the highlight was a visit to a Yuba Factory in Kyoto. This ancient craft involves making a “noodle” from soybeans. Mary-Anne was very fortunate to have been able to spend time with people who are carrying on this ancient craft. In addition Cecilia and Kerry Lanza (Slow Food Brisbane members) will speak to us about the ease and joy of travelling and eating in Japan. It is a country whose food traditions make adhering to the Slow Food philosophy both simple and satisfyingly tasty as well as supplying a myriad of great destinations to visit.

A light delicious Japanese supper will follow the talk with a glass of wine.
