Cooking Class Menu

I would like to introduce Japanese ingredients (Kurumafu, agar, tofu mayonnaise, fifteen rice grains) that are good for Plant-Based menus.
①Plant-Based fried chicken (Fried Kurumafu, gluten bread)
Kurumafu is a kind of bread made with a dough which is a mixture of flour and gluten. If you are allergic to gluten, I can prepare gluten-free ingredients instead of kurumafu.
② Japanese Marinated Vegetable Salad
③ Tofu Mayonnaise Potato Salad
④ Assorted Vegetable Salad with Agar
⑤ Fifteen-grain Rice
⑥ Maple Syrup Agar Jelly.
We are going to use agar agar for one of the salads and the dessert. Fifteen-grain rice is a mixture of white rice and other 15 different kinds of grains.

Hello! My name is Izumi. I live in western in Tokyo, called "Musashino" area, which is full of nature. It is said to be a place where Hayao Miyazaki, a Japanese animated film director, got inspire for famous films, "My Neighbor Totoro".
I teach Japanese dishes in my house near the forest.
I lived in Virginia, the USA for two years when my kids were small. The elementary school where my son went had so many international students from over 70 countries, and I cooked Japanese food at the school festival. The memories I had there through exchanging cultures and cooking were amazing!
Now I have a qualification for the Japan association of cooking for foreigners, and teach them Japanese cuisine, such as sushi. There are sushi classes as well as Plant-Based cooking classes. In Japan, there are so many ingredients ideal for Plant-Based dishes. You will be surprised how delicious Plant-Based dishes could be.
I also teach how to make Musashino Udon noodles. It is a famous dish around my area. The Udon is interestingly foot- neaded. I’m a member of Musashino Handmade Udon Preserve & Popularize Association. I would like to spread Musashino Udon around the world, hoping that more and more people enjoy foot-kneading the noodles and savor the taste of them.

An Unforgettable Cooking Class Experience at Izumi's Home I recently attended my first cooking class at Izumi's private house, and it surpassed all expectations. Izumi kindly picked me up from the station, immediately making me feel comfortable in the beautiful and serene neighborhood. Her bright and kind personality created a welcoming atmosphere akin to visiting a friend's house. I highly recommend this class, as it offers a unique opportunity to learn and indulge in homemade healthy Japanese food. Despite being vegan, the flavors were well-balanced and satisfying, even for a meat lover like myself. I'm already looking forward to arranging a private class focused on Japanese cuisine during my next visit to Tokyo. Thank you, Izumi, for an unforgettable experience.

Thank you for coming to my cooking class! I really enjoyed cooking with you. I had a lot of fun talking with you. You taught me about Korean culture and answered my questions, and I really felt like family. And thank you for your interest in Japanese pickles, rice bran pickles! Please come to Japan again someday! Let's cook Japanese food together again!

Cooking with Izumi was amazing! She was an incredibly gracious host. The Japanese-style vegan food we cooked together was so amazing! I had dishes I had never heard before and was able to try new foods, which Izumi provided explanation for. I feel like vegan food in Japan can sometimes be difficult to find or get recipes for, so this is a great opportunity to explore some more eco-friendly food options. Everything turned out so delicious! Izumi thoughtfully provided the recipes for me so I've been able to try and recreate the dishes at home as well!

Izumi-san was such a lovely host, and my group had a very fun time learning how to cook a vegan meal with her! Although none of us were vegan, we thought that the meal was absolutely DELICIOUS. I highly recommend the meal to both vegans and non-vegans, and especially to those looking for a fun Japanese cooking experience :) Her house is in a suburb of Tokyo, but it is very accessible from downtown and in a beautiful area. Thank you Izumi-san for making us feel so comfortable in your home, and providing us with a very memorable experience!
