What you'll do
After meeting at north gate of JR Tabata station, Yamanote-line (The main line in Tokyo), we move to my private kitchen studio. We'll gather in my home kitchen to create a traditional bento box with a twist. Bento, the common term for a home-packed meal in a box-shaped container, typically contains rice, fish or meat, and vegetables. In this class, we'll be creating "kyaraben"—character bento—a creative take on the traditional lunch. You'll learn nutritious menu planning, and we'll use artistic license as we create our bento boxes. Finally, we'll visit a supermarket where I'll introduce you to foods and share shopping tips! *The guests who booked via my cooking class website will be joining the class. Each class is 6 people maximum.
