Welcomed a lovely family from Nevada, USA and their favorite menu choice was Gyoza, of course! My guests got to learn some basic facts about Japanese Dashi ingredients, then taste them as well. This class was actually arranged by a charity organization Make A Wish. We are honored to be chosen as a host for […]
This was a little busier-than-usual class as we prepared 2 kinds of Ramen broth, regular pork soup as well as chicken version, since one of my guests preferred non-pork dishes. For Gyoza, we normally use pork for filling but this can also be replaced with something different, such as chicken, beef, mushroom, root veggies, Tofu […]
As the season heading into late Autumn in Tokyo, hot and comforting bowl of ramen is an ideal choice for lunch, dinner or even your late night snack. On this cool but sunny day, I welcomed a couple from Montreal, Canada. My guests have been travelling east and west of Japan for 3 weeks and […]
The menu for this early November class was Pork bone broth (Ton-kotsu ) Ramen and Gyoza. My guest was a fun couple from UK, but they were originally from France and Italy and met each other in London, enjoying Japanese food at my little kitchen in Tokyo on this day. Ramen is yummy but sometimes […]

My guests for this class (Nov 2019) were from York and London, UK. Again they were all visiting Tokyo to watch Rugby World cup games. I was very happy to hear that some of their Rugby friends recommended my class for some experience between the games! All the dishes were truly authentic Japanese, as my […]
The main dish for this ALL girls class was our all-time favorite Gyoza, plus a few side dishes of auberges with caramel-like white Miso sauce, Kaki (persimmon) salad with Tofu cream, Miso soup with Enoki mushroom, and Takikomi Gohan instead of our regular rice. ‘Takikomi ‘ is a method of cooking rice with seasonings such […]
Rugby World Cup continued… and more Rugby fans at my little kitchen ! My guest was a lovely family from Southampton, England and of course they were here to cheer Red Roses, I thought. But their big Daddy was actually an enthusiastic fan of All Blacks. So I had to take out my jar of […]
Rugby World Cup was still continuing in Tokyo and here I had a solo gentleman guest from UK. I was not very familiar with this sport until we had this game as a hosting country and luckily, I was learning a lot about its rules etc. from my guest those days! Between the games, my […]
