Cooking Class Information

In Japan, we have traditional vegetarian cuisine called Shojin ryori, which is developed in Buddhist temples. Healthy and well-balanced cuisine featuring seasonal vegetables, soybeans including tofu, nuts, or other traditional foods. We make a variety of vegetarian dishes inspired by classic Shojin ryori with a modern twist. No meat, fish, egg, milk, honey but you can enjoy flavorful taste. I'm sure even non-vegetarian will satisfy with this menu!

All cooking classes by Yukari

I'm Yukari living in Kyoto, working as a food writer for over 10 years. Through my work, I truly realized good aspects of Japanese cuisine such as abundant fresh seasonal ingredients, beautiful presentation, well-balanced menus, and a wide variety of regional food behind its culture for more than a thousand years. Not only writing a cover story about food but also love cooking so I started offering a cooking class for foreigners an understanding of Japanese food lot more than Sushi and Ramen. I hope participants to enjoy Japanese home-style cooking you will never have in restaurants.

After lunch, you can go to sightseeing Shisendo, Manshuin, Ginkakuji, Nanzenji near my flat. I can advise you about nice spots for sightseeing or restaurants in Kyoto.
