As a topping, dried bonito flakes start dancing when sprinkled over the top. Even gluten-free Okonomiyaki can be served, by choosing Ingredient options such as rice flour instead of wheat flour. Mixed with grated yam (yamaimo), it will be light and fluffy.

The traditional fillings are umeboshi (pickled plums), shake (salted salmon), canned flaked tuna mixed with mayonnaise, etc. It is your choice!

Cooking Class Information

Before cooking, we can go grocery shopping together near the station. Let me know your preference, or any dietary restrictions if you have.

My family recipe is recommended for vegetarians, as well as vegans.

We can have plenty of cabbages, green onions, and any veggies you like. Thinly sliced pork can be replaced with thinly fried tofu. If you have an allergy, alternative options for shrimps can be cut into bite-size pieces.

To make the batter, mix the flour, Konbu dashi stock, grated yam, eggs, and salt in a large bowl. Next, add some eggs. Combine the chopped vegetables with the batter.

As you like, please place the okonomiyaki sauce, and mayonnaise, and sprinkle with dried bonito powder/cheese on the top. Enjoy it while it is hot.

Yuri was a fabulous host and chef, her English was perfect we had no trouble communicating. She even helped us select spices in the grocery store for souvenirs and gifts. Her home was lovely and clean, my husband and I learned so much and are excited to try out the recipe when we get back home :)

This was a wonderful experience, I would highly recommend this to everyone. The Okonomiyaki was delicious, and thanks to Yuri, I now feel confident and excited to make this at home for my friends and family. Yuri was an excellent host and not only did I get to make authentic Okonomiyaki, I also enjoyed an evening at Yuri’s home with her delightful family. As part of the experience we went to buy the ingredients from the supermarket, as a lover of international supermarkets I really enjoyed this. I would highly recommend you book this experience if you want to learn how to make amazing food, and enjoy an evening of good conversation. If I could give this more than 5 stars I would!
