What you'll do
After meeting at north gate of JR Tabata station, Yamanote-line (The main line in Tokyo), we move to my private kitchen studio. We start the class with the lecture about Japanese cuisine & lifestyle. Then, we start cooking Ramen broth and soup from the scratch! In addition to Ramen, I'll teach how to make crispy and juicy "Gyoza pizza" which looks like a beautiful flower as well as Today's side dish. After tasting the final products paring with premium sake,I'll guide you to the local supermarket (where I go everyday) and introduce you to other foods and offer shopping tips. * This is Home-style Ramen & Gyoza class so we don't make egg noodles and gyoza wrappers from scratch in this class. (Just in case, those recipes are on my YouTube channel already. Please subscribe "YUCa's Japanese Cooking"!) You can learn how to make Dashi soup broth and ramen soup from scratch. Thank you for understanding. * I mainly gather guests from my cooking class website. When you book, please contact me and check the capacity in advance. Thank you! * Since I hold classes at my private home kitchen, each class is 6-7 guests maximum.
