Cooking Class Information

Sushi is raw fish on sushi rice. Japanese people loves it from Edo period.
Originally, sushi was fish pickled for preservation. But in the Edo period, people in Edo started using fresh fish instead of pickled fish. They put raw fish slices or shellfish on top of small rice balls which were rolled by hand. This is called nigiri-zushi” typically known as “sushi” in Japan and all over the world.
You can make Nigiri-Zushi and Maki-Sushi om this class.

(What’s Nigiri-zushi?)
Each portion consists of a bite-sized serving of sushi rice and a topping.
Usually, the [neta] is some kind of seafood. Many kinds of fish are served, both red and white, shrimp and squid, all kinds of shellfish.... There are a tremendous variety of toppings.
The sugars in the vinegar form a coating around each grain of rice. This stops them from becoming sticky and seals in the flavor.
In the jargon of the sushi shop, the rice base for the sushi is known as the [shari].

Hi,I'm Aya! I am not vegan,but I have a lot of vegan friends.
I've been heard that they are searching cooking class in Kyoto,
and they also said that it is so difficult to find.
So I desided that I starting up cooking class
for vegan and vegetarian in Kyoto.

I went to various cooking classes while traveling in Asia, Europe, USA etc.
I hope to teach correct Japanese cuisine to everyone from overseas,
taking advantage of the experience gained in cooking classes in various countries.
Especially in Japan, the Kansai region is a place that can be said as the center of food culture.
Here in Kyoto, we will teach a lovely looks lunch box [BENTO] and famous Takoyaki and Okonomiyaki.
Enjoy Japanese cuisine in a spacious and clean space!
