Japanese cookery classes for all and local catering

Our latest review

I attended a Sushi class with my son which was fun and informative. We were taught the techniques and made most of the Sushi ourselves with the added bonus of sitting down to lunch where we ate as much as we could but still ended up bringing loads home with us! Highly recommended

Really enjoyed the 3 hour sushi class, and I now feel confident enough to try and make the dishes for myself. Good value as we came away with enough for lunch and dinner, as well as clear and helpful handouts as guides for the process. Recommended.

We had a very enjoyable morning with Hiroko-san learning how to make some typical Japanese dishes at our friend's house. Hiroko-san was great at explaining the different dishes, ingredients and ways to cook them, and also gave us very useful recipes that we could take home to cook the same dishes again. We had a very good friendly and informative atmosphere. She brought all the ingredients and utensils and left the kitchen tidy and clean before she left. We really enjoyed it and will be definitely using her services again.

Hiroko’s class was a birthday gift from a friend. Working with Hiroko was great fun, she not only helped us cook authentic Japanese dishes but also shared valuable tips and techniques. She is extremely knowledgeable and organised. She left our kitchen spotless and got us to enjoy a great meal with our friends.

Hiroko's Tofu class was exceptional in every way. She welcomed us warmly into her home and made us feel at ease and relaxed from the start.

The Lesson was amazing, with just the right amount of demonstration and interaction, and Hiroki explained every step of the process in the perfect level of detail. We even had instruction sheets to take home with us so that we could recreate the amazing meal that we prepared.

This class is perfect for anyone. I went into this only ever having made stir-fry with shop bought tofu. Now I can make my own organic fresh tofu at a fraction of the price, and I can even make additional dishes to tofu now, and I know how to make my own soy-milk!

My Vegan friends were very jealous when I showed them the pictures!
