Our Japanese cooking classes are for people interested in cooking Japanese food at home, not suitable for chefs.
In 2017, we will also be running 4 kaiseki classes, which are for people who with some experience of Japanese cuisine, and 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 Japanese people eat at home.
We cannot accept children under 18 years. We do not issue open ended gift vouchers.
All classes are one-off, one-day sessions from 10:00 am finish by 2 pm; held in Chatswood, Sydney; small–only about 8 people, so very hands on, meaning experience oriented and participation is key. We are not a cooking school, we just run traditional Japanese classes, so our classes are personal, intimate and casual. Please read information about our classes so you know how they are run.
The class schedule for 2017 is below. We will finalise content of menus later.
We use soy sauce in our cooking, which contains wheat/gluten. We usually include meat dishes in our classes because from experience, people prefer the inclusion of meat dishes. We cannot accept people with serious food allergies as our classes are too small to make alternate dishes using substitute ingredients. It is your responsibility to let us know if you have allergies.
