Established in 2008, Living Cuisine has offered Japanese cooking classes, Chinese cooking classes including Yum Cha cooking classes (Dim Sum Making) to over a thousand happy clients.

Our classes are designed for people who are interested in Japanese and Chinese home cooking. They are not aimed at chefs. Our approach is very hands-on and practical to boost participants' confidence to reproduce authentic dishes at home.

Corona took up Japanese cooking about 12 years ago when she was attracted to its light flavours and healthy characteristics. Her love for the cuisine prompt her to attend multiple cooking courses with Japanese teachers, the most significant one being the Japanese Cuisine Intensive Course for professional cooks offered by the Japanese Culinary Institute, Sydney. Here, Corona studied under master chef Naoki Nishimoto and completed the course in April 2009. In 2011 she also studied under Chef Eiichiro Yamada and Hiroshi Mizushima in Tokyo.

Corona is part of the Kansha Advisory Council that contributes to Elizabeth Andoh's cookbook "Kansha: Celebrating Japan's Vegetarian Traditions".

26 January 2017 • More Japanese Favourites

Very good, gave me confidence to try Japanese cooking on my own. Understanding of Japanese ingredients as well as cooking techniques


02 November 2016 • Yum Cha at Home

The class was cancelled due to lack of numbers less than 4 days before it was due to take place (20th October - 12.49pm). We were very disappointed as had waited several months and planned for it as it was a gift for my nephew - an annual treat - and now I'm back to square one having to find another cooking course to do together. I was fully refunded my payment without question and also offered an alternate date which we could not make work in the busy period between now and Christmas.


12 October 2016 • Sushi Making Workshop

I enjoyed it. Its a small class so plenty of individual attention if you need it. I had breaky before the class and honestly i wish id had less because i was sooo full at the end. Definitely bring a container for the leftovers. Would recommend this, there is no super advanced techniques so suits newbies and people who cant get sushi just right
