I ta da ki ma su – Food Educational Program for Children
Sunday, March 6 at 5:00 p.m.
Globus Washitsu – 889 Broadway (at 19th Street)
Children will learn about seasonal food and Japanese dining etiquette at this program cohosted by Ki-Chu New York and Chef Yoko Ueno at Globus Washitsu, a traditional tea ceremony room located near Union Square.
Ki-Chu New York is an organization founded by Kumiko Jitsukawa that presents Japanese food culture through enriching dining experiences conveying the beauty and meaning of the Japanese sense of seasonality and aesthetics. Jitsukawa and Chef Ueno will serve a seasonal meal that includes salmon chirashi sushi so that children and their accompanying parents can learn to appreciate Japanese food through their five senses.
In response to Ki-Chu New York’s winter program, one parent remarked that she and her daughters “learned about the Japanese philosophy and the traditional art of life . . . by experiencing savory dishes in the most exquisite setting.”
