Homecooked, country cuisine is one of the true joys of staying at a farmhouse pension. In Ouse, not only will you get to taste locally harvested rice and vegetables, you’ll get to savor the freshness of ingredients you’ve only just harvested yourself. The winning combination of flavor and well-earned satisfaction puts you in touch with the food at your dinner table!
Even better, at some of the farmhouse pensions, you can try your hand at preparing a meal yourself with one of Ouse’s cooking workshops. Day-tripper? You’re more than welcome to sign up for a workshop, too! No matter what, though, if you find yourself in Ouse, be sure to take the time to enjoy the region’s quintessential cuisine.
The following are the main dishes that can be made at Ouse’s farmhouse pension cooking workshops:
For fresh and healthy cuisine, nothing beats meals prepared with local ingredients raised and harvested by the farmers of Ouse. Depending on the day, you’ll be able to enjoy vegetable soup, temarizushi (ball-shaped sushi), makizushi (rolled sushi), cabbage mochi (cabbage with glutinous rice cakes), kinako mochi (roasted soybean flour with glutinous rice cakes), miso kanpura (miso potatoes), karashi dango (mustard dumplings), botamochi (adzuki beans in glutinous rice cakes), and various other dishes from the country kitchen. Those names might not mean much now, but by the time you leave you will be a pro!
Pizza served sizzling hot from a stone oven is always a treat—and so much more so when you’ve made it yourself! At the Nandabe-Mura farmhouse pension, you’ll get the full pizza-making experience, straight from harvesting your pizza’s vegetables. Pile on seasonal vegetables and make mouthwateringly delicious pizza with us in Ouse!
Delicious bread! Knead it, shape it, rise it, then bake it in Nandabe-Mura’s stone oven for a delectable self-made treat.
Enjoy healthy eating for body and soul with a bountiful country meal made with fresh local produce. Contact the Nakamura-Sanchi farmhouse pension to make a reservation.
