Cooking Class Information

Gyoza are dumplings filled with ground meat and vegetables. You can eat as a side dish when you go to the Ramen shop in Japan. Similar dishes are eaten in many Asian countries like China, Korea, Mongolia…, but ingredients and cooking methods are different. Typical Japanese Gyoza is pan-frying, so juicy on the inside, crispy and golden brown outside. We’ll teach you how to cook Japanese homemade Gyoza, off course we make Gyoza wrappers from scratch. The ingredients are minced pork, cabbage, Chinese chive and cabbage. We wrap them with thin Gyoza wrappers and pan-fry crisply. Cooking process is fun! After cooking you can eat freshly fried Gyoza dipping vinegar and soy sauce.

About Host

I'm Yukari living in Kyoto, working as a food writer for over 10 years. Through my work, I realized 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 more than a thousand years. I also love cooking, so that 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 or Ginkakuji, Nanzenji near my flat. I can advise you about nice spots for sightseeing or restaurants in Kyoto.
