  • 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.

  • Green Tea

    Green Tea

    The astringent constituent in Japanese tea is a type of polyphenol called catechin. Japan has done a great deal with the humble tea leaf. For example some benefits of the catechin in the tea leaf can lower cholesterol in some cases. Roasted over charcoal at a high temperature and grown under shade for at least 20 days are one of the examples. The most popular Japanese tea might be ryokucha. Depending on the timing of picking the leaves, the grade, the price can be noticeably different.

Cooking Class Information

We will cook home style ramen broth and ramen toppings like grilled pork, seasoned egg and the other toppings, and Gyoza from scratch. All recipes were created by me to recreate easily at home. In general, it takes long time, like a few days, to make ramen broth but you will learn how to cook ramen broth made from chicken within 30 mins without instant soup stock. You will know secret tips to make ramen noodle when you can not buy it. Firstly, I will explain all ingredients to make the dishes. Then, I will demonstrate how to make all the dishes and we will cook together. Finally, we will eat them and enjoy chatting after finish cooking.

・Understand basic Japanese ingredients
・Learn how to prepare all the ingredients to make ramen soup and the toppings
・Learn how to make gyoza skin and gyoza filling
・Learn how to wrap gyoza and grill

My lessons are not only about watching demonstrations but also putting them into practice as I want to give you enough information to help you cook them again when you return home. Moreover, I can suggest which ingredients are better to use instead of Japanese one since I struggled to get them while living in abroad.

* The class is held at 10:30 - 13:30 or 16:00 - 19:00.
* If you have any special dietary requirements, food allergies or other requests, please inform us when you make your reservation.
* Children ages 4 and up are welcome for our classes. However they must be given strict parental supervision since there will be something dangerous such as hot stoves and sharp knives in a kitchen. In addition, please note that we do not have furniture and knives made for kids.
