Experience Details

Fluffy pancakes (also known as souffle pancakes) are one of the latest Japanese foods to take over the internet: wiggly and wildly Instagram-worthy, they have captivated food enthusiasts worldwide with their airy texture and delightful presentation. Curious to try your hand at making them? Your friendly local host, Tomoko, a certified cooking instructor who has lived in Thailand and Mexico, will guide you on this engaging class that is a feast for all senses. The experience begins near Todoroki Station, where Tomoko will meet you and take you on a short stroll through charming gardens in Setagaya. While ambling along, you'll get to know Tomoko and enjoy a pleasant conversation before reaching her house, where she will welcome you in for a hands-on cooking class. After you've donned your apron, you'll learn the secrets of creating featherlight pancakes, with Tomoko guiding you through the entire process. Once the air is filled with the sweet aroma of freshly cooked pancakes, you'll personalize your creations with delicious toppings, including seasonal fruit, syrup, and more, turning them into irresistible works of art, and enjoy your pancakes with jelly homemade by your host herself. Experience flow: - Meet your host near Todoroki station and take a leisurely walk through the gardens of Setagaya as you get to know each other (~20 min) - Arrive at Tomokita's home and start making pancakes (~30 min) - Decorate the pancakes with toppings (~10 min) - Eat the pancakes at a beautifully decorated table and enjoy them with jelly homemade by your host
