    Ramen

    Ramen is a noodle soup dish and perhaps one of the most popular Japanese dishes. There are many flavours of ramen, such as Shoyu (soy sauce) ramen, Miso ramen, Tonkotsu (pork bone) ramen and so on. Common toppings are Chashu (braised pork), Negi (green onion) and Nori (dried seaweed).

  • Gyoza

    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.

Sakiko was very kind and welcoming to my family and me. She made it a point to make us feel at home, and she prioritized remembering all of our names! Not only did she give us a superb cooking lesson, but she also provided us with an in-depth lesson regarding Japanese culture, customs, and language. We also bonded over our mutual interests and our shared passion for cooking. We left Sakiko’s workshop knowing that we had acquired a great friend!

Sakiko is an absolute treasure! She explained everything so clearly, presented all the different ingredients, made us taste the ramen soup at each step of the process and made this experience so enjoyable (and safe as she is really looking out for safety and hygiene). I came as a solo traveller and met two couples there, and I felt really included all along. Big thank you Sakiko, I cannot recommend this course more!

Sakiko was a wonderful host. Not only was the food we cooked amazing, she also taught us about all the special ingredients, let us taste the differences between the cooking stages and provided us with everything we needed to know to cook these delicious dishes at home. It was great being able to talk casually with a local, and we enjoyed our evening with Sakiko a lot. I would even say it was the best experience we had in Kyoto!

This experience was one of our highlights in Kyoto. Sakiko is a friendly and fun host and an excellent teacher. The learning was structured very well and Sakiko also explained the ingredients in detail and gave us cooking tips that helped. It was engaging for all the participants and we enjoyed the whole process and having a meal together at the end. If you are vegan or vegetarian, I would strongly recommend signing up for it. With the help of her suggestions, we were able to purchase ingredients at the end of our trip, to carry back home and recreate the recipes. Thank you, Sakiko!

Our cooking experience with Sakiko is the best highlight of our trip. We missed our scheduled cooking class due to unforseen circumstances. However, Sakiko still invited us over to continue the cooking class. She is knowledgeable and an excellent communicator as she answered all our questions with ease. She taught us the techniques and showed us the ingredients and where to get them. The recipe she provided was amazing and easy to follow. We will never forget her kind considerations and understanding. Thank you very much Sakiko!

The Vegan cooking class with Sakiko was such a special experience! We really appreciated her hospitality, enthusiasm, and detailed cooking insights. We learned so much more than we thought we would (from the flavor of dashi before and after heating, to the composition and flavors of the three different kinds of miso, to how to discern when your gyoza have been perfectly cooked). Though we are not vegan ourselves, the ramen and gyoza were so delicious! We can't wait to invite friends over to cook together when we get home. Thank you Sakiko!!!
