In this cooking class, we will make 3 dishes.
We will start by preparing ramen soup using vegetables and chicken bones, then make gyoza skin from scratch. Then prepare the fillings for gyoza and pickles.
Every steps are easy to follow using simple ingredients so you can recreate the same thing when you go back to your home country.
I’m Nariko and I offer Japanese cooking classes out of Nariko’s Kitchen, a cooking studio located in Kawagoe. It takes only 30 minutes from center of Tokyo. Kawagoe is a town of history retaining the culture and aroma of Edo-era. It's one of the most popular places to visit in outside of Tokyo.
I was a child who always liked to help my mother in the kitchen. I gained more interest on cooking when I lived abroad and had a chance to do cooking sessions as part of my job. I’ve been teaching Japanese cooking in Malaysia as a cooking instructor and conducted classes for individuals and companies, and also gave cooking demonstration at cultural events.
Come join me and try a hands-on cooking class offered in a Japanese home. And enjoy the beautiful town after the class!

Nariko is a Japanese language teacher, so her English is excellent. I attended the Udon & Tempura class, which was super delicious. She was very friendly and helped us if we needed it. Her instructions were clear and the work was actually a lot of fun. Would definitely recommend it if you want to learn some great local recipes. I'll be going back again for another class next time I'm here!

We had a great time at Nariko’s class. The end result was delicious, she gave clear instructions, and preparation freedom. Nariko was flexible with last minute and constraining planning, which was appreciated and unexpected. Great overall cooking experience in Japan! Recommended to anyone passing by Tokyo.
