Japanese cookery classes for all and local catering

Our latest review


Hiroko has just visited our office on Pride Park, Derby for a team building mini sushi course.


Everything we needed to make the sushi was provided by Hiroko and she explained everything clearly. I think even the colleagues of mine who were unsure about sushi before enjoyed the lesson… and eating the sushi after even though they weren't sure before!


It was fun, educational and super tasty! Hiroko is lovely and I personally hope to be able to enjoy some more food with Hiroko in the future! Yum!

I visited Hiroko's Japanese cookery class with my mum this weekend. We had an absolutely fantastic time!

Hiroko is a brilliant teacher - and the food we cooked was delicious. We learnt so many skills and how to cook 5 Japanese dishes. She also provided us with recipe handouts which I'll be saving so I can create these wonderful dishes at home.

It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience, with great company, great food and great conversation.

I would recommend this class to anybody who enjoys Japanese cuisine and learning about the cookery and culture of Japan.

I had a delightful time at the cooking class, which was offered to me as a surprise birthday gift. We received a warm welcome into Hiroko's beautiful home, and spent time cooking several delicious recipes which we enjoyed together at the end of the class. I really enjoyed learning new techniques and recipes, which I now feel confident enough to recreate at home. I also enjoyed learning about Japanese culture during the class. Thank you, I highly recommend!

Hiroko did a great job of teaching us how to get the most out of our Ingredients, she was a fantastic chef and her food was lovely. She was definitely worth spending the money on if you are having an inkling to eat Japanese!
