  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Sake


    Japanese popular alcoholic drink must be Sake, or called Nihonshu, made from fermented rice. The foundation of good sake is quality rice, clean water, koji mold and yeast. Premium sake differentiates itself in quality of ingredients and production process, so that flavors ranges light and crisp to richer, fruity notes.

  • 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

Juicy and crunchy fried gyoza (Japanese dumpling) can be a main meal as well as a great appetizer for your next party!

In this class, we are making several kinds of Gyoza using two types of gyoza skins (wrappers). One from a shop and the other one you are making it yourself from scratch!
I think gyoza skin is widely available in local supermarkets around the world nowadays but if you know how to make it yourself, you won’t walk around the town looking for it. And they taste better and are so much more elastic and easier to work with a filling.

You will learn how to make gyoza skin and a filling, technique about putting the filling in the dough, and preparing several kinds of dipping sauce which works well together with gyoza.
You can use your new skills back home to show your family and friends!

About Host



★★★★★ (4)

Hi! I'm Junko! With my good foodie friend, Eiko, we offer authentic Japanese home cooking classes with a laid back feeling as if you are preparing a home party.
Most of our recipes require no special ingredients nor unusual equipment. I try my best to provide recipes that use ingredients that can be found at ordinary supermarkets overseas.
The menus in the classes reflect authentic Japanese home cooking, which I learned from my mother and my grandmother. We eat a lot of healthy meals using a variety of seasonal ingredients in Japan. I love to share the healthy dishes I cook daily. There are so many Japanese dishes and cultures that are not well known outside of Japan and I’m happy to introduce them to you!
The happy smiles of our guests are the biggest treat for us. We will welcome you to our kitchen with all our hearts :)
