In Japan, it can be difficult to find vegetarian dishes due to the extensive usage of dashi, a soup stock made with bonito flakes (bonito is a type of tuna).

We enjoyed every minute of our cooking class, not only was the food delicious, Kaori was an amazing host and teacher. She kept the recipe simple and easy for us newbies to follow, which was much appreciated. I would absolutely recommend this course to those travelling to Japan.
I took the cooking class with Kaori. She picked me up at the station and first we went to the local supermarket where she showed me the products we would be using and also told me, with what I could substitute it, if I can‘t get it in Germany. Next we went to her house and we cooked a vegan Ramen and Vegan Gyoza. I learned so much that I can also use for other vegan dishes that I cook. It tasted absolutely delicious and we also had some great conversations when we had the great food that we cooked together. Thank you again, Kaori, for the great time and the things I learned. Hope to take another class with you some other time.
Simole tricks for 2 delicious meals we know we can prepare at home.
The cooking lesson was so much fun, Kayo was so nice and talked to us and asked us questions about ourselves She explained about the groceries and gave us the recipe! The ramen and gyouza were delicious Very recommended!!
We had a great experience cooking vegan ramen and gyoza with Kaori at her home. There was another couple together with us, which made the whole event even more entertaining. We first went to the local supermarket to explore all the ingredients, which we prepared together later. Kaori was very welcoming and explained everything in detail, and even prepared a birthday cake for my boyfriend as the cooking event was his birthday present - really a great surprise for us in the end! We would definitely recommend to do the course to experience Japan and the local cuisine.
Four of us attended the class, and we all loved it. We learned how to make a beautiful soup broth, which we used to make a veggie ramen dish. We all folded and fried gyoza — they were so delicious. Sakiko is a knowledgeable teacher, and she provides great learning tools and advice. We'll definitely be making the dishes at home. This was one of our favorite nights in Japan!
The instructor was very nice and knowledge about the Japanese ingredients. Although there was no tour of any supermarket or market. Over all we did enjoyed the class.
Very interesting and lovely teacher. The food was great.
We had a great time cooking in a private Japanese home and got nice tips, with a pleasant host.
Our teacher was absolutely fantastic, she was so nice and funny and we really enjoyed ourselves! The food was really amazing aswell so I would honestly really recommend this class. We will definitely go again next time we are in Kyoto!
Kaori was such a lovely lady, she walked me from the nearest station to her house and was very warm. The food was delicious! Highly recommend!
The session is informative as rina will impart knowledge about common Japanese ingredients used in cooking through a supermarket tour. The cooking is a mixture of teacher demonstration and hands on by participants to eventually cook the bowl of ramen and Gyoza together. Recipes will also be given so you can remember the steps to cook the ramen and Gyoza.
Enjoyed the supermarket tour, Gyoza and ramen making process.
This cooking class was awesome! I booked it as a single person. Two other "students" joined the group. Rina, our lovely instructor completed the class. First we went to a typical japanese supermarket and Rina showed and explained us the ingredents we´ll use later for our delicous Ramen and Gyoza. Then we went to her place and started to cook Ramen and Gyoza. Rina explained us everything we have to know about Ramen and Gyoza. She was very kind and patient and of couse we had to chop and measure up everything ourselves. And the result was just awesome and delicous. I´m already excited to cook this for my friends when I´m back in Germany! I can just recommend this cooking class :)
Sakiko was very nice and thorough in her explanations. Really enjoyed the evening!
Rina was very welcoming and a very good host. We had a lot of fun learning about Japanese cooking and really enjoyed ourselves. Highly recommended!
