  • Karaage


    Japanese fried chicken, karaage is made by marinating bite-size pieces of chicken in sake, soy sauce, ginger and garlic before coating them generously with potato starch. When fried, the starch turns into an ultra crispy shell encasing a flavorful juicy bite of chicken. Absolutely great with beer.

Reviews of Cooking Class

Edo Schets, United Kingdom


We had a wonderful time during Makiko's bento box workshop. The bento box concept was perfect for us as it covers several different dishes (omelette, salmon, fried chicken, rice and spinach) which are useful to master. Makiko has a lot of experience, speaks perfect English and is a wonderful host! She went above and beyond by giving us tips on how to spend our time in Kyoto, and it helped us make the most of our stay in this city. To top it off, her dog Roy is super sweet and a fun companion during the workshop. Highly recommended.
