Okazu Dinner with Aya Hashimoto

Okazu Dinner with Aya Hashimoto

We invite you to join Japanese chef and West Acton resident, Aya Hashimoto, for an intimate Okazu style dinner at Orange Door Kitchen. Unlike an elaborate Japanese restaurant style dinner, okazu refers to dishes that are casually cooked and shared around the family table. Translated from Japanese, okazu means “side dish,” because these well seasoned (read: delicious) dishes are eaten in between bites of cooked rice. Catch up with friends next to our cheery fire and then tuck into an authentic Japanese feast prepared with chef Hashimoto’s passion for telling the story of her cultural roots through food.

Tickets are $60 for this Japanese style feast. Beer, wine, spirits, and non-alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase.

"Shaken, Stirred & Punched" Mixology Class: Tea, Anyone?

Sweet tea may not be much of a cultural thing in the northeast, but New Englanders have a long tradition of caring a lot about the taxation of said beverage. Regardless of your colonial-era politics, tea is the perfect beverage for late spring and early summer. It can be sipped hot to warm up a chilly morning, or gulped cold to cool down a hot afternoon. It can also be mixed with booze for brunches, barbecues, and bashes! Join Meredith at this month’s mixology class for a demonstration of three different tea-based tipples to toast the beginning of summer - shaken, stirred and punched. While we're at it, you'll learn foolproof techniques for your home bar and get hands-on to practice measuring, mixing, and mastering flavor with steal-the-recipe craft cocktails. Chris will serve up scrumptious snacks to soak up some of that booze.
