Experience Details

Tempura donburi is a perfect balance of food textures: a fluffy rice bowl topped with crisp shrimp and vegetable tempura fried golden brown. Add a steamy, umami-packed miso soup and izakaya-style napa cabbage side dish, and you’ve got your next go-to Japanese comfort feast, which you can learn how to make in this dynamic class in Osaka with a professional chef specializing in Japanese cuisine. Chef Yuki is a licensed chef who built her professional career in Japan and Vancouver, writing cookbooks about Japanese cuisine and working in the kitchen of an izakaya restaurant that received a Michelin Bib Gourmand distinction. Her passion for connecting different cultures through food inspired her to create lessons where she shares all her cooking secrets and passes on tips and tricks for everyone to enjoy cooking some of Japan’s most delicious dishes. In this class, you’ll make a classic rice bowl topped with crispy tempura (battered, deep-fried shrimp and vegetables.), and you’ll also learn a traditional recipe for miso soup that includes shaving a block of katsuobushi (dried bonito) to add the flakes into the soup, enhancing umami. In true izakaya-style, a side dish of napa Cabbage will finish the meal. Once cooking is finished, enjoy your warm, homemade lunch over conversation with Yuki. You’ll learn about Japanese food culture and trends, deepen your understanding of the country’s traditions and ingredients, and find comfort in its quintessential flavors. Chef Yuki thinks of her classes as more than mere cooking lessons — she intends to provide immersive cultural experiences to learn about food culture while honing your cooking skills and sharing a delicious meal together.
