About Shikisai

The word “Shikisai” is translated as “the colour of four seasons.”

Japanese foods are often designed to represent the colours of a season, or even all four seasons. Shikisai also evokes the source and provenance of quality ingredients we should always aim to use in our cooking – seasonal foods give a dish its unique taste and meaning.

Shikisai Cooking was founded to build Perth people’s knowledge and ability to cook Japanese food, and help them to create high quality, healthy family meals. We are a small group of Japanese cuisine teachers and assistants with a shared goal of sending our students home full of confidence and inspired to cook delicious Japanese food, whether it is for a quiet family meal or a large dinner party.

About the teacher 

Principal cooking teacher Kyoko Seta is an accomplished Japanese cook specialising in elegant Osakan-style dishes. Kyoko has lived in Perth since 1998, and runs an acclaimed WA Japanese restaurant.

Kyoko has a lifelong love of bringing fresh, quality ingredients to the table, whether the meal is for her children or for the guests in her restaurant. She remembers digging up tender bamboo shoots and collecting mountain vegetables for her mother’s cooking when she lived in Kawachi village, Osaka, as a child. Kyoko’s mother and grandmother were known as excellent cooks; every meal was homemade, and the large family always enjoyed their meals together. Although they were a time-poor family of many, they still lovingly made their favourite dishes from common, low cost ingredients. These family experiences formed the groundwork for Kyoko’s philosophy of cooking and food.

Being a professional cook as well as a mother to two young children, Kyoko understands the challenges of cooking delicious, healthy food – whether it is for many, or for a small family meal. She brings her traditional cooking style and love for the best ingredients to her unique cooking classes in Perth, Western Australia. She believes food brings happiness, smiles, fun and communication to relationships – and anyone who wishes to cook healthy, quality Japanese cuisine can learn and enjoy new cooking skills that will last for a lifetime.

Kyoko teaches using a simple system to help you prepare classic dishes, or even invent your own varieties of sushi and other loved Japanese foods.

19 September 2018 • Japanese Cooking Group Lesson - Mirin & Soy Sauce

This was a great course. We didn't just learn recipes but learnt how to alter them or come up with our own ones, all with a very small number of ingredients. Who knew you could make most Japanese sauces with 3 ingredients? We learnt the theory as well as the practice in an enjoyable way.
