When: July 5 (Sun) 12:00~ (Last Order 15:30)

'Sacred Grains' is run by volunteers including millet sisters.
By organising such events we'd like our community
to get involved and enjoy sharing and bonding.
By cooking millet cuisine, we'd like to preserve
some traditional dishes, yet at the same time,
discover the sustainable future foods.


We'll be looking forward to seeing you on the day!

Considering food mileage we chose locally grown ingredients
wherever we could and lovely Organic produces were used
for the sake of our heath and mother Earth.

8:30am arriving at Wabisabi, looking around the place,
it usually takes time to get used to an unfamiliar kitchen.

9am standing in front of a big mountain of vegetables
we were a bit overwhelmed and excited at the same time.

12-4pm lots of people came and ate in such a short time,
and many had never tried millet cuisine before..

It was great relief to hear most people found it delicious.
