JUN / Good Company 2 Day Pop-Up with Picklestone: The Secrets of Recipe-Free Japanese Cooking

Posted by Zack Parker on

On June 29th and June 30th, Tortoise General Store welcomes Tomonori 'Tomo' Tanaka, designer of Picklestone, to hold a pop-up accompanied by a demonstration titled 'The Secrets of Recipe-Free Japanese Cooking.'

It will be an excellent opportunity for people to learn the benefits and convenience of using Picklestone to achieve the authentic taste of Japanese food.


In the first half of the demonstration, Tomo will share how to:

  1. Prepare katsuobushi (dried bonito flakes) and konbu (kelp) broth.
  2. Utilize soy sauce effectively.
  3. Combine bonito and kelp broth with soy sauce to create traditional Japanese pickles.


After the demonstration, we will sample essential Japanese dishes, including pickles, osuimono (clear soup), and onigiri (rice balls) provided by Onigiri sun in Little Tokyo.


Please join us in developing a deeper understanding of the essence of Japanese cuisine and how to approach making Japanese food at home without a recipe!

All participants receive $20 off a purchase of a Picklestone or Picklestone T-Unit!

(Please note that this is not hands-on workshop, so there is no need to bring any materials.)


Picklestone - Preorder | Tortoise General Store

 

Recognized with a Good Design Award in 2018, Picklestone consists of a stone weight, a cylindrical glass bottle, and a wooden lid that simplifies the process of making tsukemono, traditional Japanese pickles and preserved vegetables.

The newest addition to the lineup is the T-Unit, which makes it easy to create ochazuke, a long-beloved dish in which dashi or tea is poured over rice and eaten with pickles.

Preorders for Picklestone and Picklestone T-Units are available now and close on June 22nd. A limited supply of Picklestone products will also be available for purchase in-store during the event.
