About Ringonomori

At Ringonomori we hand-make each pickle with care. Most of our pickles are made from vegetables grown in the warm climate of the city of Hamamatsu, Shizuoka Prefecture, south of Mt. Fuji. We seek cooking methods that preserve the natural umami flavor and nutrients of the vegetables we use, resulting in pickles that are even more delicious and easy to eat. Our vegetables are selected for their excellent taste and attractive appearance, by professional vegetable sommelier Nagaya Tomoko.

About the Product

Thick Bell Pepper Pickles

These pickles are made from thick bell peppers grown in Shizuoka Prefecture. Bell peppers are rich in antioxidants, and the abundance of vitamin C they contain may keep skin beautiful and fight the effects of ageing. Pink pepper, cumin, cardamom, and bay leaves add lots of extra flavor. These pickles are also ideal for adding to sandwiches and salads. Not overly sour, they can be enjoyed like sweets.

Please see the following page for detailed ingredients and allergen information.

Cooking Class Menu

In this cooking class a professional instructor will guide you in making the below three dishes. In addition to the featured product, Thick Bell Pepper Pickles, the following two products will also be provided to you for free.

  • Sushi Vinegar: This vegan sushi vinegar from Otafuku Sauce has a mild and pleasantly sweet taste, and is ideal for making all kinds of sushi. (Sushi Vinegar ingredients/allergen information)
  • Sato No Gohan Koshihikari rice: Because it's precooked you only need to heat it in the microwave or boil it in water to enjoy delicious Japanese rice. 

1. Cup Sushi

These bite-size versions of chirashi sushi are super cute and colorful, with seafood and egg

Ingredients you need to purchase and prep yourself: cucumber (if possible, Japan-grown), salmon sashimi, egg.

2. Temaki Sushi

Temaki sushi is sushi that is rolled by hand. By adding colorful veggies and other ingredients this delicious and healthful dish also gets a lot of visual appeal: it resembles a flower bouquet, making it perfect for birthday parties and other celebrations.

Ingredients you need to purchase and prep yourself: salmon sashimi, egg, green curly-leaf lettuce, white sesame seeds, mayonnaise, soy sauce. 

3. Bouquet Salad

With its colorful bell pepper pickles and optional prosciutto or smoked salmon, this green salad is made to look like a beautiful flower bouquet.

Ingredients you need to purchase and prep yourself: leafy vegetables, a dressing of your choice, something to wrap the salad in, such as parchment paper, and a ribbon to tie on if you want to go for the full bouquet-like presentation.

(Due to time constraints, the instructor will be making a single serving of each dish.)
