Gyoza is a dumpling using thin dough wrapped around delicious, mouth-watering ingredients. You can customize them according to your favorites but common ones include minced pork, cabbage, garlic and leek. Gyoza originated in China, but have evolved in Japan to be a uniquely Japanese staple of household cooking. Try it for yourself and get hooked on gyoza!

Junko is a very patient, knowledgeable and talented teaching. She taught 2 13-yr old boys to make 2 kinds of winged gyozas! Not easy but the process was great fun, cooking with the young teens a success and the gyozas so delicious!

Hi Yuh, Thank you very much for joining my class two times in a row. I also enjoyed cooking with two little shy and bright boys. And their winged gyoza were great success better than mine!! I'm happy if they make Gyoza again for family.

This was my third cooking class with Junko and once again she exceeded all expectations! The gyoza were delicious and she is such a great instructor. I would recommend her class to anyone interested in Japanese cooking or just looking to learn how to make new foods!

We had a great time making gyoza with Junko. She was super flexible in accommodating three of us in multiple time zones and with both vegetable and pork menus, patiently explaining the different steps to each of us and sharing a great conversation about Japan and the food. We look forward to taking another class with her, either on zoom or in Tokyo!

Junko's cooking class was the most fun we've had in a long time. We've done other cooking classes recently with other chefs/cooks but they were always so formal and serious, and they never left room for questions or for re-demonstrating techniques, plus we all had to share in making one single recipe. Junko made sure everyone was making their own dish, and made sure everyone got an opportunity to learn each skill. Not everyone in our group was always on camera so if she hadn't seen someone's work in a while she'd make sure to call on them to come over and show what they were doing so she could be sure they understood the instructions. Making our own Gyoza wrappers was so easy with her instructions! The best part, though, is that she is FUN! She made jokes with us and when she saw we were drinking wine she insisted that we all toast together, and she answered questions about anything from the recipe to her life in Japan to where she's traveled, and she asked a lot of questions about where we live and where we like to travel too. It was really nice to have a class that was so relaxed where we were able to learn so much. The food was AMAZING, and even though our group made a total of 36 Gyoza, we were still fighting over who got the last one! Highly recommend her classes to anyone wanting to learn something new.

Hi Jason, Thank you so much for your wonderful review. We all had fun cooking and chatting because of your family are friendly too. The top priority for me is entertaining participants. This is why, I serve my class from Japan to people who live abroad. So it is fun to know each other, culture and foods. Come over my house and toast with a glass of frozen margarita when you travel to Japan!! Junko

Junko is a wonderful host! She was very patient when she was teaching us how to fold the gyoza, and she shared lots of interesting stories with us during our class! We hope to visit Junko's kitchen once it's safe to travel again. Thank you Junko!

Our Gyoza making lesson with Junko was amazing! Junko was very thorough in showing us how to make authentic gyozas. My partner and I were warmly welcomed to the lesson by Junko, who taught us how to make 12 pork and 12 prawn gyozas. Junko was very patient with us and talked us through every step of the way - especially the tricky Gyoza folding and pinching part! The lesson was a great success and the gyozas were delicious. I will recommend Junko's lesson to all my friends and family, she is fantastic. Thank you so much Junko!

Hi Ellie, Thank you very much for your great review!! I was so impressed. You are nice persons and good cookers too. Since wrapping filling is little tricky, try it next time watching the video of our class. I'm looking forward to cooking together next time. Junko


Brianne, United States of America

Our cooking experience with Junko was wonderful, fun, and welcoming! My son, who is 9, joined in and he enjoyed making Gyozas! Junko is very accommodating and caring. We also had ASL interpreters during the class and Junko was easy-going and accessible. I would recommend this cooking experience 100%!

Hi Braianne, Thank you for the best reviews. I was glad to hear that the Gyoza which made together have gone soon and your kids wanted more. Your son could make wrappers from dough and wrap filling very well. Let me know when you take interested in making another Japanese dishes. I'll be able to teach you online. See you next time!! Junko


Antoinette, United States of America

★★★★★

An amazing experience. We love to cook and thought a cooking class would be a perfect fathers day gift. We had been in Japan last November, and wanted to continue our experience. Junko was amazing. She was incredibly prepared, and made the entire experience fun and interactive. We laughed, enjoyed the experience, and as it turned out, the gyoza was simply delicious. It is our intention to do additional classes with her. If I could give more stars, I would. As a side note, when we were in Tokyo last November, we stayed at the hotel where Junko was concierge. After talking to her for a few moments, we all realized we remembered each other from the trip. That added to the enjoyment. A small world indeed. Junko was and is delight, and I would heartily recommend her to anyone with (or without) a passion for cooking.

Rache, Phillipines

Junko was very patient with me, teaching me what to do and was very accomodating in all my inquiries / questions. I love the way she taught me how to make gyoza and sharing with me her life story. We even agreed to meet when we go to Tokyo and have ME time together. She alao offered for my boys to stay with her while I go out with my husband for a date. How cool is that! I only signed up for a cooking class but I got a friend in her! Thank you very much and I look forward to meet Junko in Tokyo!

Hi Rache, Thank you very much for your heartwarming review. I also enjoyed making Gyoza chatting and laughing with you. We cannot be at the same place in Online class, however I want to communicate each other as deeply as we can. So I was so glad you felt them. Of course, take your boys to my house when you visit Tokyo. I'll help you to have a date with your husband!! Junko

My cooking lesson with Junko-sensei was very enjoyable. She taught me how to make gyoza from scratch, and explained every step clearly and easily so that I was able to learn the best techniques even via Zoom. I highly recommend her classes - you can learn Japanese cooking wherever you are in the world!

Love Junko’s class. I had a made-from-scratch dumpling class with Junko. Junko is patient and made the class an easy step to step process, so it’s easy to follow through. My boy and I enjoyed both the class and the dumplings at the end of the class. We’d def join Junko’s class again :)
