Cooking Class Menu

Let’s be real, tonkotsu ramen broth takes at least 6 to 10 hours to make, and we only have 2.5 hours to make ramen broth, gyoza, and ice cream! I am excited to share with you my home style ramen recipe that I have created that takes only two 90 minutes with chicken, kombu and so much umami in it. And, of course, suggesting other alternative ingredients to make delicious broth based on what you can find in your country. We’ll also make lots of gyoza. Chopping lots of cabbages, chives, and grating garlic and ginger. I will ask everyone to use your hands, to chop, form gyoza, and present the dishes we make. Many great tips to make super crispy juicy pan fried gyoza and of course, we will learn about cooking tools! Some Japanese cooking gadgets you have never seen. We will cook from all from the beginning within the class timeframe. My experiences are hands-on cooking followed by my short cooking demos. Of course my passion is not only sharing cooking techniques, I’d love to share with you how locals live and visit local neighborhoods where mostly you wouldn’t be visiting as tourists. Most importantly, I want my guests to experience and perceive real lives in Japan. Looking forward to having you all!

Ramen noodles are store-bought as well as gyoza wrappers.
Vegetarian and pescatarian requests are welcome!

  • Ramen


    Ramen is a noodle soup dish and perhaps one of the most popular Japanese dishes. There are many flavours of ramen, such as Shoyu (soy sauce) ramen, Miso ramen, Tonkotsu (pork bone) ramen and so on. Common toppings are Chashu (braised pork), Negi (green onion) and Nori (dried seaweed).

  • Gyoza


    Gyoza is a dumpling using wrapping thing dough to hold the inner ingredients. Most commonly, minced pork, cabbage, Garlic and Leek. The origin of Gyoza is from China but it has evolved uniquely in Japan and now quite different from the Chinese one.

Very good class and yukari was so sweet. She taught us how to make delicious vegetarian ramen and the best gyozas we have had in Japan! Speaks really good English, and gave us good tips for the rest of our trip! Will definitely recommend her cooking class :D

Our cooking experience with Yukari is one of our favorite experiences during our week long visit in tokyo. Yukari was warm, welcoming, and made meeting with a room full of strangers so seamless and comfortable. She was a wonderful conversationalist and an even better cook. Of all the restaurants and street foods we tried-- this was our favorite meal.

Thanks very much for your welcome into your lovely cooking studio. The Ramen and goyza we made were just so tasty. The tips and ideas you gave were very intestine and use able. Also I'm going to go looking for that very drinkable citrus sake. Thanks for a wonderful time and cooking experience.
