What you'll do
You can be a SUSHI MASTER! and learn basic Japanese ingredients, easy and practical cooking way and food culture in my lesson. We will cook miso soup and 3 varieties of sushi, like nigiri sushi, traditional rolled sushi and California roll. This class is private course so it is possible to focus on your question and personal interest. In addition, you can feel ordinary Japanese life in my kitchen. Firstly, I will show you how to make sushi rice and “dashi” which is traditional Japanese soup stock made from fish and seaweed. After that, we will make sushi and miso soup. Finally, we will eat all dishes together after finished cooking. WHAT TO EXPECT ・Understand basic Japanese cooking method and ingredients ・Learn how to prepare all the ingredients to make sushi like making sushi rice and slicing fish with a Japanese sharp knife ・Make 3 types of sushi by yourself ・Learn how to make dashi broth and miso soup ・Taste local premium sake selected carefully My lessons are not only about watching demonstrations but also putting them into practice as I would like to give you enough information to help you recreate everything on my dishes when you return home. Moreover, I can suggest which ingredients are better to use instead of Japanese one since I struggled to get them while living in abroad.

My city named Nishinomiya is one of the most historical sake regions. I always explore new cooking way and sake for food paring. I was born and raised in Osaka. I used to work as a Japanese chef in Denmark and traveled over 20 countries. Living abroad, I enjoyed teaching my foreign friends Japanese cooking and drinking together. We could know each other through those experience. If we eat and drink together, I bet we can be good friends.

Where you'll be
My home cooking studio is nearby Mondo-yakujin station. It takes only 20 mins from Osaka (Umeda) and 30 mins from Kobe (Sannomiya) by Hankyu train line, and is located in Nishinomiya-city. Nishinomiya has a lot of sake breweries, and is one of the most popular places to live for Japanese people in the Kansai area. Though it is not well-known to tourists, I guarantee that you can feel the ambiance of an authentic local Japanese.
