What you'll do

We meet at the nearest station in my house. When we arrive my house,first of all, I'll give the concise presentation of the menu of the day ; I will talk about "Dashi" stock which is the basic taste in Japanese cooking, and also I'll introduce "Shojin Ryori" (traditional vegetarian cooking in Japan) of Buddhism. After that, we cook together. Don't worry if you are not confident in cooking, I will support you well so please enjoy it! You can know unique cookwares, recipes and Japanese characteristic ingredients through our lesson, and it must be a fantastic and exciting experience for you! We make 3 dishes in the lesson; "Vegetable Box Sushi", one main dish for vegetarians and Miso soup. I'll do some preparation before the lesson so that we can finish all of the cooking in lesson time. And I'll support that everyone will be able to work together and share this experience. When the dishes are ready, let's have a tasting party!! Let's enjoy talk while eating! Please tell me your impression of the cooking experience and travel in Japan and so on. Lastly, I write your name in Kanji(Chinese character) for you, so you try it too! When you back your accommodation, I'll escort you to the station.

Meet your host, Yoshie

Hello, my name is Yoshie. I was working for ANA as a flight attendant in the past and since at that time, I loved cooking and entertained a visitors and friends with homemade cooking. I was also working in children's hospital as a psychology therapist after retiring from ANA ; however I always dreamed of one day having a job in food and cooking. Whilst living in the U.S.(St.Louis) and Italy, I often held dinner parties and workshops where I presented Japanese home cooking to my friends and colleagues and they were always very popular among local people . So I wanted to introduce the "real" taste of Japanese food as a traditional culture of Japan to more people in the world. Finally, I have been able to turn my dream into reality by opening my own cooking studio- 季喜KIKI - in Tokyo. Now I'm a member instructor of Washocook co. Ltd.
