About This Class

This class covers popular Japanese dishes including okonomiyaki (thick savoury pancake with cabbage and various ingredients topped with Japanese BBQ sauce and mayo), nasu dengaku (eggplant topped with sweet miso sauce) and agedashi tofu* (deep-fried tofu in mushroom sauce). 

Classes are all one-day sessions. There are no pre-requisite classes or skills. They are conducted in a casual and relaxed environment in a state-of-the-art teaching kitchen.

All classes are hands-on, so you will be preparing the food, not just watching a demonstration. We limit the size of the group to ensure personal attention to all participants.

A typical class commences with an introduction to the Japanese/Chinese pantry, as well as a detailed explanation of the background and context of each dish and particular ingredients.

Then all participants will be invited to put on their aprons and start the fun hands-on practice. They will be working together to prepare 3-4 dishes while demonstration and cooking instruction are given throughout the session.

We ensure that every participant is given exposure to all the dishes. Then everyone get to enjoy a full sit-down lunch accompanied by specialty teas to crown your participation in the class.

*- In the hot season, agedashi tofu could be replaced by "egg-flower" soup with mixed mushroom.
