Y.Hemma Sessions #2 Savouring

An encounter with food and visual creation at chef Yurie Hama’s home.

The combination of food and art can be a challenging and sometimes over-sophisticated and intimidating encounter, which often leaves no space for the genuine simple pleasure of experiencing something nice. This event is all about drawing this encounter back to an experience where taste – aesthetic and gustative – comes first, enhanced with the cosiness of being in the cook’s home.

A casual yet elaborate Japanese meal, inspired by the surrounding space and objects created by invited artists, will be shared among the guests along with traditional sake. The designed objects will be available for purchase giving the possibility to recreate the meal experience at home.

Y.Hemma Sessions #1 Taste

In collaboration with Underverk for Season 1 — Hemmet, Yurie Hama, owner of café Kikusen, starts her home sessions that consist of food experiences designed together with people from various fields. Yurie will be hosting the following two events at home:

A tea and food workshop that provides 3 steps of approaching new tastes.
The occasions when and where people drink tea in Japan are quite diverse. Beyond the regular afternoon brew, tea at home is served at every meal with different types and at different temperatures in order to harmonize with the rest of the meal.

This workshop is produced together with tea advisor Wataru Adachi from LYCKA Japan & Sweden, who presents the basics of Japanese tea, followed by a tasting that introduces possible approaches to combine tea and food. Three different samples of a Japanese home-made meal are combined with three different types of Japanese tea. The tea is provided by tea company Ippodo, well-known for its high quality Japanese green tea since 1717.
