What you'll do
Learn to make traditional savory bites—okonomiyaki and gyoza—with a Japanese chef. We’ll start with a conversation about Japanese cuisine and lifestyle, then we’ll make our first dish, okonomiyaki, a Japanese-style savory pancake using various vegetables and meat. Next, we’ll make a crispy and juicy “gyoza pizza”—it looks like a beautiful flower. We’ll pair our freshly-made dishes with some premium sake. Then we'll head to my local supermarket and I'll show you foods you might not be familiar with and offer insider shopping tips. * 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.
