Learning Japanese food culture

and cooking various seasonal dishes in 3 hours


Learning Wisdom of

Japanese Fermented Foods for Cooking

A unique and important point to the class is that you will learn, not only how to cook Japanese but gain a lecture at the beginning of the class about Japanese seasonings. Since Fukuko has a certified sake sommelier and fermented food master, she is happy to share all her knowledge of Japanese food culture with the attendants.  The session makes you cook Japanese food much easier than you thought. Japanese people love to use seasonal ingredients and fermented ingredients, which are very tasty, but also have an impact on our health and wellbeing, contributing to a long, healthy life, that may just be that "eye-opening" experience for you.

Let's cook 

Seven Healthy

Japanese Home-style Dishes

Let's enjoy to cook Japanese home-style dishes using seasonings you just learned and seasonal fresh ingredients. 

The class is hands-on, couple with demonstrations. You will prepare 7 kinds of Japanese dishes including a main dish from beef, chicken or seafood accompanied with various vegetable side dishes. Even though those are simple cooking  procedures, you will find great results that you’ve never tasted in Japanese restaurants.

*Simple prep works will be done ahead. Enjoy only the highlights of the cooking procedures.

-  The Recipes  -

You will receive a complete recipe by email after the class.  

Furthermore, some recipes call the universal ingredients you can get easy as long as there are Asian supermarkets around your area. You can recreate the dishes in your home kitchen.

Choice of Main Menus

We will cook one main dish in each class. The first booked group can decide the main dish ingredient from Beef, Chicken or Seafood.
