おもてなし – Omotenashi, a Japanese spirit of hospitality.

This is my personal project, which I kicked off in late 2015. I love entertaining people and cooking is one of my passions. I would like my guests to not only enjoy my Shojin Ryori but also experience Omotenashi spirit.

My Omotenashi project invites 2-4 guests over sunday brunch / lunch at my place and I mostly cook Shojin cuisine, which is what monks eats at temple. It’s mostly course menu, based on what kind of ingredients I can find at farmers market and it’s composed of 1 or 2 starters, main dish, and dessert.

I grew up with my mom, who mostly cooks and serves foods as it’s just cooked. So she mostly doesn’t sit and eat with us. I guess it comes from Omotenashi spirit and I’m so proud of my mother’s hospitality.
