A cherished comfort food in Japan, katsu curry is a comforting blend of smooth Japanese curry with pillowy rice topped with a crispy pork or chicken cutlet. At this fun cooking class in Kyoto, you'll learn how to make this classic curry variation with three sides and dig into a scrumptious homemade meal with Shirley, your friendly instructor! First, you’ll meet Shirley at her kitchen studio on the second floor of her takeout restaurant. She will greet you and walk you through the steps before you pop on your apron and start cooking, learning all the tips and tricks she puts into practice to make delicious food for her local business. You will fry a crispy cutlet (pork, chicken thigh, or chicken breast) and make Japanese-style curry with rice. You will also prepare three side dishes: miso soup, tamagoyaki egg rolled omelet, and lotus root chips. All three are tasty and healthy and complement the rich curry perfectly! Pair your meal with your local craft beer, sake, or homemade plum wine, and unwind with your delicious food as you get to know Shirley, your host. Born in California, Shirley spent years traveling around Taiwan and Singapore but attended culinary school in Japan. Apart from running a takeout restaurant, she enjoys teaching cooking classes in English and sharing her love for Japanese cuisine with the world!
