  • 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.

  • Okonomiyaki


    Okonomiyaki is a Japanese savory pancake, made with flour, eggs, shredded cabbage, meat and toppings as you like. This variability is reflected in the dish's name: "okonomi" literally means "to one's liking". You can eat it everywhere in Japan, but especially Okonomiyaki made Hiroshima style and Osaka style are the most famous.

Reviews of Cooking Class

Georg, Germany


The cooking class with Bell was a definite highlight of our 2-week trip to Japan! Not only did we learn how to cook Okonomiyaki which we found delicious since day one in Japan, we also learned how to cook Gyoza anf tasted them for the first time. Bell was apologizing in advance for not speaking English too well, but that was not the case at all! From pick-up at the meeting point to the cooking class itself just until bringing us back to the meeting point, the communication and organization was in very clear English. Bell‘s extremely friendly and captivating charme made it an outstanding experience and to whoever decides to take this cooking class: You won‘t regret it the slightest bit! Plus, she gave us some great recommendations for our next stop, Tokyo. ARIGATO GOZAIMASU BELL :-)

Inga Aksamit, United States of America


Bell's class was great. She's so friendly and patient and it was a real treat to be invited into a private home. I'm so glad we made gyoza-- I love it and never knew how easy it was too make. The okonomiyaki was delicious and so interesting to touch and feel slimy Japanese mountain yam-- such a unique food that becomes fluffy when cooked with egg. Don't let Bell fool you-- her English is very good and she is very friendly. She picked us up at the subway station and took us to the train station. Great class. Highly recommended.

Thank you for coming to my cooking class. It would be great if you could buy the yams used for okonomiyaki in your country. There are also many other recipes using yams. I hope you can make gyoza and okonomiyaki at your home. If you have any trouble making it, please feel free to contact me anytime. Thank you very much.

Sabrina, Liechtenstein


Amazing cooking class! Bell is a great cooking teacher and speaks English well. The recipe was delicious and she printed it so that we could take it home. She was very well prepared and described every step in detail. She also told us which alternative ingredient we can use in case we can‘t find a specific Japanese vegetable in our home country. THANK YOU very much! We really enjoyed it. It was so much fun.

Thank you very much for coming to my school. I also had a very good time with you all. Was it difficult to wrap the gyoza? When you come back to Australia, please make it. I hope you could have a wonderful memory in Japan.
