Japan is home to a wild drinking culture, but a night out is best accompanied with food. At a typical Japanese-style izakaya bar or pub, izakaya food is almost essential to go along with your glass of sake or beer to make it taste even better. You’ll find university students in local bars after class with a drink and a snack, or groups of salarymen eating and clinking glasses in izakaya after a long day at the office. Izakaya culture is a big part of Japanese society, as well as the delicious izakaya food that goes along with it.
With a seasonal menu, learn how to make your own delicious izakaya food during an Izakaya Food Cooking Class in Kyoto. This izakaya food cooking class is a great opportunity to learn how to make a number of tasty dishes you’ll find in a local Kyoto izakaya pub! During this afternoon cooking class in Kyoto, you’ll immerse yourself in Japanese dining culture while you learn to make a number of different authentic Japanese foods, which you’ll typically find served as both home-cooked meals and in restaurants or izayaka settings.
This izakaya food cooking class has two parts. Firstly, you’ll cook 2 or 3 dishes and then enjoy eating them while they’re hot and tasty. Next, you’ll head back into the kitchen and make another 2 to 3 dishes before sitting down again to eat in round two!
