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.
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.
Feel the Japanese Season through the cooking
The ingredients will be determined by the seasons and the supplier’s situation.
- About Menu -

Sake, Japanese Sweets, and Green Tea
Enjoy a full sit-down meal with your classmates. Please enjoy the feast with sake. The instructor Fukuko is a sake sommelier, and she chooses the sake labels go with the dishes. Freshly brewed green tea and Japanese sweets will be served at the end of the meal.
The food will be served in beautiful Japanese traditional potteries and porcelain tablewares with a short lecture about Japanese table manners.
You can ask any questions about the cooking, food culture, Japanese lifestyle and more. I’m happy to answer any questions!
