IN-STUDIO JAPANESE COOKING CLASSES

It is the best time to learn Japanese cooking deeply and widely in a small group setting and all hands on. From basic ingredients, seasonings, and fresh produce. Having all the access to Japanese ingredients is a privilege if you live here, but plan to move at some point. As known in the world, Japanese cuisine won cultural heritage status, not only that Japanese longevity is very well known. It is our passion to share the secret of it with all the good quality of ingredients.

FISH

Fish is super easy and speedy to cook with great health benefit ingredients to cook and eat, so we always love to add more recipes with seasonal fish. But sadly, fish consumption has been declining every year in Japan because I think many people are intimidated by fish and don’t really know what to do with it. There are many fish recipes that we would love to share. This would be the first dish we would like to share along with other home cooking dishes. 

  • Miso braised mackerel
  • Agedashi-tofu
  • Kinpira, burdock carrot with beef
  • Miso soup
  • donabe cooked rice
  • Seasonal fruits and fruity sake

* Please understand the class menu will change slightly due to seasonality of ingredients.

MEAT

This would be the first meat dish you may expose, IF home staying Japanese family’s home. Super homey dish that everyone loves. In this class, I want to create a Japanese burger using Japanese seasonings and vegetables instead of ketchup and worcestershire. And, potato salad. I can’t forget when I opened my cooking studio, one of my guests who was visiting Japan asked me “why Japanese potato salad is so delicious?” Small tips  handling cooked potato make a very different outcome, 

  • Japanese style hamburg steak with yam, shiso, served with daikon radish and ponzu sauce
  • Japanese potato salad with onion, cucumber, hams, and boiled eggs
  • Tonjiru, meat, root vegetables, and tofu soup
  • Donabe brown cooked rice

CHICKEN

One of the first chicken recipes we would love to share is, absolutely Kara-age, Japanese fried chicken. A quick marinade with ginger sometimes with garlic, soy sauce coated with starch makes chicken super crispy even chicken gets cold. This is a recipe that I have adapted from Chinese style fried chicken, we deep fry one piece of chicken thigh. We will make chili oil in class, and bring one jar to go for your home use. 

  • Deep fried chicken, with green onion sauce
  • chili oil
  • Tofu salad with onion, ginger, coriander, baby sardines serve with hot sesame oil
  • Tomato and eggs drop soup 
  • Mochi with black sesame sauce

BREAKFAST

This is the most essential Japanese cooking that covers our culinary tradition. In this class, you will learn so much about Japanese basic ingredients, a few kinds of seaweeds, smoked bonito fish, natto, kinds of miso, how to grill fish using your cooking tools. Please do not feel this is an advanced Japanese cooking class, we will move step by step with each student in a small class. And, our classes are based on this principle, an instructor is not only a speaker. We believe that the best way to learn is to ask “why” and ask questions. We use two cameras in class, one is front (facing instructor) and another one is shooting a cutting board and heat. This is not required, but if your tablet, phone, desktop, notebook can change the angle to shoot your hands, that would be fantastic for us to see your hands-on cooking in your kitchen. We hope that this cooking skill becomes a treasure in your life that can make others happy and healthy!FYI: Please do not worry about having small Japanese plates and cups as pictured. We can create Japanese plate using a large dinner plate with one to two green from your plant for color!

  • Washoku breakfast with grilled salmon
  • Natto with spring onion 
  • Tofu salad with ginger and bonito flakes 
  • Miso soup with seasonal vegetables 
  • Japanese rolled egg omelette 
  • Donabe cooked brown rice 

* Please understand the class menu will change slightly due to seasonality of ingredients.
