Experience Details
Indulge in a comforting Japanese shabu-shabu hot pot. Literally translating to “swish-swish,” shabu-shabu refers to the sound that is made when slices of meat (or other ingredients) are swirled in the bubbling broth, cooking them. This Japanese dish is extremely popular and is a fun dish to prepare at home! In this shabu-shabu cooking class, we will step it up a notch and transform the ingredients with our special kawaii preparation, teaching you how to cut the vegetables into cute shapes. With our Japanese cooking instructor, you will first cut the vegetables and make 2 kinds of sauce. We have prepared high-quality Kobe wagyu (domestic Japanese beef), which is known for its fine marbling and excellent tenderness. We will also make a special type of soup using beaten egg, and serve ramen after the shabu-shabu has been all finished. Finally, we end things on a sweet note with a Japanese dessert that is representative of the season. The Kawaii Kobe Beef Shabu Shabu Cooking Class takes place in Minami Aoyama, one of Tokyo’s most affluent neighborhoods. Our cooking studio comes equipped with the best kitchen tools and facilities available. With comfortable and tasteful decor, and great natural light, the studio is ideal for taking photos (magazines have even held photoshoots here!). So join us in the kitchen, and let’s make a delicious Kobe beef shabu-shabu!
