Our classes are suitable for everyone, but the kaiseki classes are more advanced, requiring basic cooking skills.

All classes are one-off, one-day sessions on Sundays from 10 am finish by 2 pm; held in Chatswood, Sydney; small class with only 8 people, very hands on, experience oriented. 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.

Our Japanese cooking classes are for people interested in cooking Japanese food at home, not suitable for chefs.

Unfortunately, we cannot accept children under 18 years. And we do not have open ended gift vouchers, as we’ve had too many issues with them in the past.

The class schedule for 2020 (first half) is below.

We use soy sauce, 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.
