Nice to meet you♡
My name is Yuko.

Since my son was a junior high school student, I taught international students how to cook as a host family, and in 2007 I started holding cooking classes at my home.

The international students who came to our home,
Since I started giving priority to Japanese-style dashi, which is the basics of Kyoto cuisine, I have been teaching lessons based on cooking using dashi.

I would like everyone to learn about Japanese home cooking and the wonderful culture of Japan.

  • Rice


    Rice is a staple food in Japan. In all most every family, there is a rice cooker. There is variety of Japanese rice brands such as Koshihikari and Hitomebore.

  • Miso Soup

    Miso Soup

    Miso soup is a traditional Japanese soup. It's base is "dashi" (Japanese fish stock) and Miso paste. Common added ingredients are Tofu, Green onion and deep‐fried tofu but differs by personal preference. The type of miso is different from region. In western and Easter Japan white miso is mostly used.
