Experience Details

Step into Chef Yuki’s kitchen for an educational and fun Japanese home cooking class. You'll make three types of sushi, prepare a comforting bowl of miso soup, gain insights into local food culture and traditions, and finish the class enjoying a delicious homemade lunch. The star of this class is sushi in three different forms: nigiri (bite-sized rice and toppings), thin rolls (hosomaki), and thick rolls (futomaki.) You’ll start with the basis for all three: steaming vinegared rice to pillowy perfection. You’ll then shape the rice and place toppings to make nigiri; assemble thin hosomaki rolls with single fillings using a bamboo mat, and, to make futomaki, you’ll first learn to make fluffy tamagoyaki (Japanese rolled omelet), which you will use as one of the many fillings to ensure colorful and enticing flavors in each bite. Yuki will be there to assist you every step of the way as she teaches you the different techniques and methods for sushi-making. Next, you will make a quintessential Japanese side dish — steamy and comforting miso soup. To ensure a flavorful soup, Yuki uses a traditional method of shaving katsuobushi (dried bonito), an addition that enhances the natural umami that miso soup is famous for. Once all the dishes are ready, enjoy your homemade lunch as you discuss Japanese food culture with Chef Yuki. Feel free to ask her about her extensive culinary experience or ask for insider recommendations on things to do in Osaka. Chef Yuki describes her classes as more than mere cooking lessons but cultural experiences to immerse in Japanese traditions while gaining new culinary skills. A licensed author and cookbook writer who worked as a chef for a Michelin Bib Gourmand-awarded izakaya, Chef Yuki gained experience both in Japan and overseas and now enjoys sharing her passion and knowledge of Japanese cuisine from her Osaka kitchen with visitors from across the world.
