Our Japanese cooking classes are for people interested in cooking Japanese food at home, not suitable for chefs.
In 2015, we will also be running 3 kaiseki classes, which are for people who have had some experience cooking Japanese cuisine, or anyone who has participated in any of our classes before – we encourage you to attend. The other classes will feature simple dishes, the sort of dishes most Japanese people eat at home.
We cannot accept children under 18 years, even if accompanied by parents.
All classes are one-off, one-day sessions from 10:00 a.m. finish by 2 p.m.; held in Chatswood, Sydney; uniquely small, only about 8 people, so very hands on, meaning experience oriented and participation is key. Also, we are not a cooking school, we just run authentic Japanese classes from our home, so our classes are personal, intimate and casual. Please read information about our classes so you know how they are run.
In our classes we emphasise the basics so you can go home and re-create, or create versions of your own, so ingredients, method, presentation and Japanese eating etiquette will feature.
The class schedule for 2015 is below, but we will be finalising the content of each menu later. Please email masako for more information.
We use soy sauce in our cooking, which contains wheat gluten. We usually include meat dishes in our classes because that seems to be what people like. We occasionally run vegetarian classes. If you have serious food allergies, it is your responsibility to let us know before you attend a class.
