Home cooking class

Learn how to prepare a hearty Japanese lunch that you can recreate for friends back home.

For some, Japanese cuisine has earned the reputation as being fussy, demanding the sourcing and preparation of complicated ingredients. Not so in the average Japanese household, where recipes are deceptively simple, can be recreated at speed and most importantly taste ever-so-good. On a home cooking course you'll learn how to prepare a hearty Japanese lunch using easy-to-identify ingredients which you'll be able to make for your friends back in your home country.

In the teacher's own home kitchen you'll be shown how to prepare a traditional Japanese meal including classic dishes such as sushi, tempura or teriyaki chicken which of course you can then enjoy for lunch. Vegetarian options are also available on request. The Japanese are naturally private about their home lives, so this experience offers a unique glimpse behind closed doors as well as the chance to make a new Japanese friend.
