NEW CLASS! Miso Marinated Cod Bento Box

This meal is inspired by the bento boxes of Japan, because they are very well rounded and tasty meals.  Miso (deeply umami japanese bean paste) marination is a bit of magic that you'll start translating to more than just fish!

You'll start with an iceberg lettuce and cucumber salad with carrot ginger dressing, just like you get at any sushi or hibachi restaurant, so fresh and bright.  Next, you will learn about the magic of miso marination, why it makes your fish taste so good, and what else you can use it on.  You will sear the fish in a pan and saute some garlicky buttery edamame to go along side. All of this will be served with fried rice.

Chef Instructor: James Hanser

Chef James grew up in rural northwest Ohio, moved to Cincy in 1998 and started working in the restaurant industry.  He fell in love with the craft.  Mostly self-taught, he has honed his skills over the years working for nearly every restaurant group in town... Jeff Ruby's Steakhouses, Boca Restaurant Group, Orchids at Netherland Plaza, Whole Foods Market, Hyatt Regency Cincinnati, and many independently owned restaurants along the way.  In 2018, James started his own company called "Have Knives. Will Travel." as a personal chef, caterer, and in home instructor.  He loves all types of food, but he is totally obsessed with braising, curing, and smoking meats and pickling. Inspired by his mother, a lifelong teacher, he began teaching at The Learning Kitchen and is loving every minute of it!
