近茶流 
The Way of KINSARYU

  

 

Kinsaryu culinary discipline was established at the height of the Edo period during the Bunka-Bunsei eras.

 

The traditional-style Japanese cuisine called Kinsaryu has been passed on from generation to generation and specialises in the cooking technique of Edo - former Tokyo, especially the impeccable use of knifes, the particular handling of seasonal ingredients, food arrangement, etiquette and the philosophy of Washoku (和食 Japanese Cuisine).

 

Kinsaryu is a cuisine associated with the tea ceremony.  Cha-Kaiseki (茶懐石) is an important part of tea ceremony and a key field of study, research and education at the school.   The Yanagihara family has for generations been developing, cultivating and teaching these various cooking techniques from their school in the heart of Tokyo; which moved to a custom-built state-of-the-art premises in 2007[MM1] .
