Why You'll Love This

What's Included?

    Your instructor will take you through unique ingredients and techniques in her friendly home kitchen! Sit down for a relaxing green tea and be briefed on the experience to come. Touch, smell, and sample the ingredients - become familiar with their characteristics and how they will be used in your cooking. The pantry is next - what are the staples for sauces and seasonings in Japan? Depending on the class you choose, you'll learn the classics - from perfect miso soup to sushi and teriyaki, gyoza and konomiyaki - but there's plenty of lesser-known ones in there too! It sounds like a lot, but seeing it all done resonates the information better than a book ever could! Then the fun begins - you'll prepare dishes as demonstrated by your instructor. This way of teaching shows how methods are performed traditionally, but also allows you to exercise a little creative flare. Rotate between dishes being prepared and enjoy Japanese tea and drinks.

    Please note: You will learn to cook as a group. You will have one chef demonstrating how to cook and you will assist with some parts of the cooking process.
