Hosted in English

What you'll do

The experience is the best to enjoy “IZAKAYA” Japanese pub style. Izakaya is definitely popular Japanese food culture. You will learn how to cook 4 kinds of popular Japanese pub food and how to pair food with sake.
We will cook yakitori (grilled chicken), deep fried tofu, rolled omelette, Japanese seasonal vegetable pickles. After cooking, you will enjoy eating the dishes with 3 types of local sake bought in local sake breweries' direct shops. The sale sold in sake breweries' shops are limited sale, fresher and more delicious compared to others.
My city has produced sake the most in Japan for over 300 years, and has a lot of sake breweries so I will choose the best sake carefully to taste with food depending on season. You will taste them and experience food and sake paring.

WHAT TO EXPECT
・Understand basic Japanese ingredients and how to make basic sauces
・Learn how to make yakitori, rolled omelette, deep fried tofu and Japanese pickles from scratch
・Taste 3 different types of sake
・Learn how to choose sake to match dishes

My lessons are not only about watching demonstrations but also putting them into practice as I want to give you enough information to help you cook them again 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.

Hi! I am Saeko. I'm certificated as an international kikisake-shi (sake sommelier), and have worked as a professional food stylist & a recipe creator. 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.

2) Teach authentic Japanese cooking without using instant condiments
3) Provide enough information to understand Japanese cooking
4) Enjoy both cooking and chatting

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.
