Tempurá [天 ぷ ら] has its origins in Portugal where you still can find a similar dish which is called “Peixinhos da Horta.”  The Portuguese were the first Europeans to reach Japan in 1543 trading goods and trying to spread the Christianity through their strong Jesuit community. During Lent, the tempura of vegetables and seafood became an alternative food for missionaries. Although Tempura originated from the Portuguese, we say Tempura is a Japanese dish because the Japanese version is distinctly different from the original dish. In Japan we adapted the recipe, leaving the dough thinner, using lighter oil and adding more vegetables. We hope you will join us for a fun night of cooking.
