What you'll do

Isn't it wonderful if you can make Ramen&Gyoza at home?! In my cooking class, you can learn how to make noodle and gyoza skin from scratch! My recipe for ramen is easy and very healthy. I will demonstrate first and teach you one by one. Even if you don’t have enough confidence in cooking, you don’t need to worry:) Veggie&Vegan menu is available too. Come join in my class and become a Gyoza master!

My studio kitchen is only 10 minutes away from Nara Park and very close to famous tourists spots. Why don’t you make this cooking class a part of your day in Nara? It’s perfect for your day trip too! Let’s enjoy making home-made ramen and gyoza in the cold winter season!

My partner and I had an amazing time in Chie's cooking class. We highly recommend this experience for anyone visiting Nara. Could there be a better souvenir from your trip to Japan than some new skills which you can show off at home? The food was delicious and the lesson was very accessible, even for those with no previous experience of Japanese cooking. Do not eat before you go! You will be extremely full when you leave... Chie was also a patient and very knowledgeable teacher. This was one of our favourite experiences in Japan.

Chie was so wonderful and understanding even if our cooking skills were not perfect she was patient and helped us. Also the the directions to find the place were very good.

Worth every cent! We had such an amazing experience with Chie and actually had the most delicious ramen and gyoza I’ve ever tasted🤤 Great location as well, we spent a few hours before the lesson walking around deer park and looking at the temples which were also amazing. 10/10 day and night. Easy to get to from Osaka. Highly recommend this to everyone!

Our evening with Chie was fantastic. Cooking with her guidance was really fun and the food was delicious (the gyozas were my favourite un Japan). It was above my expectations and I’d absolutely recommend this to anyone. We did this as a part of a day trip from Kyoto - visiting Nara park during the day then cooking in the evening. Perfect!

Our cooking class with Chir was definitely one of the highlights of our whole 1-month trip in Japan! The studio kitchen was clean, stylish and comfortable. Chie was super friendly and we laughed a lot with her. She took a lot of very professional quality photos during the class, so we didn’t have to worry about taking our own photos and could instead focus on the cooking! And best of all, we learnt how to cook some delicious food! We made the best gyozas and ramen we had in Japan (if we do say so ourselves!). Thank you Chie, we‘d love to come back!

Loved the cooking with Chie! I cooked the vegetarian (vegan, if I wouldn’t have put the egg in) recipe and it was so delicious. Would 100% recommend to anyone who wants to learn how to make super tasty ramen and gyoza and have a great time while doing it.
