CULINARY ARTS SALON

A feast for the senses. Featuring atelier and market visits, foraging, cooking and sharing meals.

Culture, Flavor, Terroir

MIRUKASHI salon sessions offer a deep dive into the flavors of the season in the context of one of the world’s greatest culinary traditions.

Slow down, engage your senses, and experience the great joy of cooking, eating, and living in tune with the natural environs in this multi-day, immersive retreat in the countryside of JAPAN.

Join me for a few days of sharing the flavors of the season. We'll plan meals and cook together, plate our food on the myriad of hand crafted wares we find on the shelves, and feast together. We’ll take our cues from the old almanac that divides the year into 24 seasons and 72 micro seasons, each with its own special taste combinations. We’ll also venture out to meet local growers, producers, chefs, and artisans to better understand our ingredients and surroundings.

You'll go home with:

Insights into Japan's culinary culture

seasonal Recipe Collection

SOME PRETTY SWEET SWAG

JOURNEY DEEP.
Explore. Taste. Awaken.

An adventure for the sensualist full of aesthetic beauty, delicious flavors, and intimate encounters with dedicated and passionate artisans. Join me and experience Japan's food and culture in context. 

Lasting Bonds

These immersive experiences are as much about cultural dialogue and creating community as they are about cooking. As we stand shoulder to shoulder in the kitchen and sit elbow to elbow at the table, we'll share our passions, experiences, and stories. From your peer participants to the local chefs and artisans you meet, you'll leave knowing you've forged lasting connections to an intimate group of culturally curious folks who love Japan and its flavors.

MIRUKASHI IS MY STORY

Become a lifelong member of the Mirukashi Collective, a place to share delicious conversations about food, life, and travel in Japan. 

At the end of our time together you’ll be invited to join a private, members only, online salon where you can continue the conversation, nurture blossoming friendships, and meet other culturally curious gastronomes who have spent time in Mirukashi.

The experience doesn’t end after you go.
