What you'll do

In this class I will teach you how to make Japanese souffle pancakes from scratch. Japanese souffle pancakes are a light, fluffy, mouthwatering treat that are served in cafes all over Japan. These pancakes are a fun addition your breakfast, brunch or dessert repertoire. Since making these pancakes can be tricky, we will make the pancakes one at a time to practice and I will teach you all the tips you need to make the perfect pancakes. In total we will make 2 fluffy pancakes.

Please note: in order to meet Airbnb quality standards to keep class sizes small (no more than 10 participants per public class), guests should book one spot for each person who will be participating in the experience and not have multiple people participate per device/location. If you have multiple people who will participate from a single device/location, please book a spot for each of them.

This Experience is great for team-building. Book a private experience for your group. Is your group larger than my listed max group size for private groups? Send me a message!

I was born and raised in a rural community in southern Japan and have been passionate about cooking from a very young age. As is common in Japan, I grew up in a home with three generations and spent all my time with my grandmother in the kitchen. She taught me everything I know about cooking.

I host two other Airbnb Japanese cooking experiences with over 195 reviews, all five stars. I was awarded the Bay Area "Quality Champion" award by Airbnb for receiving the highest quality scores on my cooking experiences. I have also hosted many virtual team building activities for companies all over the world, and am the cooking instructor at the Japanese Cultural and Community Center of Northern California where I offer online classes. My goal is to provide you with the best possible experience where you learn how to make authentic Japanese food.

Fun weekend morning with Kenji in our virtual kitchen. He did an amazing job walking us through each step of the process and helping us make the fluffiest pancakes. Would highly recommend to everyone.

Thoroughly enjoyed the cooking class. Kenji was an excellent instructor, patient, entertaining, and full of excellent cooking tips. I will definitely be using the recipe again.

Kenji-san's class was a fantastic experience that we'd recommend wholeheartedly. He gave clear instructions before, during, and after the experience, personalized his tips and advice to each person in the class while still keeping the overall pace moving, and was a funny and charming storyteller, making even the most novice of cooks feel at ease. The pancakes were delicious, and we have the confidence now to continue practicing! Arigato gozaimasu Kenji-san!

Fun class! Slow enough to follow along. Kenji is funny and makes it easy to follow along. Class is small and gives you the feeling you’re part of a team.

Kenji did a really great job taking us step by step through the pancake maki by process! I had a great time and really enjoyed the soufflé pancakes that I made!

Kenji created an excellent environment for learning to make Japanese pancakes. All of the communication before the class for gathering materials was clear. The pace of the class was perfect to complete all steps. He used two cameras so you could see the steps on the table in addition Kenji giving instructions. Kenji added some nice background information and entertaining stories. I received this class as a socially-distanced gift from a friend. Would definitely take one of his classes again!
